Digital Future Talk

Germany's Digital Agenda and Cambodia's Future Workforce

The event on the 26th of March, starting at 5.30pm at Raintree, Phnom Penh, will take up the topic of digital policy frameworks and what kind of skill sets are needed in the future. To do so, Tankred Schipanski, member of the German parliament, and Dr. Heng Pheakdey will provide presentations and answer the questions of the audience.


What kind of policies and agendas do we need to get ready for the digital future? How can we prepare our workforce and what kind of jobs do we need?

Learn more about these topics at our next digital future talk with member of the German parliament Tankred Schipanski, who is member of the commission of the digital agenda and the commission of science and technology. He will provide insights into the German policy framework, Germany's digital agenda and the role of politicians.

We will also launch the study "Preparing Cambodia's Workforce for the Digital Economy", written by Dr. Heng Pheakdey. He will share insights into recent developments in the Cambodian labor market, current skill gaps and the changing nature of work.
