Yesterday, I was at the ADB again for the second day of Digital Development Forum. I was privileged to listen to informative talks on how technology can further advance the growth and progress in the Asia Pacific region.
I had Vietnamese sardines again for breakfast.
The sessions tackled private-public partnerships to enhance the viability of tech in order to build smarter cities.
For AM snack, I had egg and veggie sandwiches.
The sessions resumed and continued to discuss how governments can utilize technology to streamline their public services.
Lunch was another lively affair, and I particularly likes the lasagna.
I took a brisk walk to the bank’s new wing to have coffee.
I chose Bo’s Coffee because they serve local blends.
I even managed to crochet while waiting for the afternoon sessions to begin.
I appreciated that the afternoon sessions discussed how technology could be used to encourage stakeholders to scale up their businesses by utilizing online platforms and ecommerce facilities.
For the PM snack, I had ADB’s famous crinkles and coffee.
I definitely see technology as a tool to foster development in the Asia Pacific region. While it is not perfect, technology can do more good than harm. I have an online store myself, and I am proud that Human Nature has an ecommerce platform that allows me to virtually spread the goodness of social enterprise. As a blogger, I look forward to using my website as a medium to feature social enterprises, handmade lifestyle, and how I achieve my fitness goals. After all, my personal development is progress, and it is possible that I could inspire others to begin improving their own lives. This is why I continue learning and attending conferences, and I hope that you will also consider improving yourself by showing up to invaluable informative sessions such as the Digital Development Forum.
