Description

This report is a summary of the APEC project, Building Capacity in Promoting Inclusive and Responsible Business for Sustainable Growth in Digital Society. The project discussed definitions and key elements, current policies, case studies and challenges for Inclusive and Responsible Business (IRB) development in the region. It was agreed in the seminar that the Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted the role of innovation and digital companies in building resilient communities. The report urges APEC economies to foster stronger public-private partnership and bridge regulation gaps across the border to develop an enabling environment for IRB for sustainable growth in the region. The report consists of content-based summary of the presentations, best practices and case studies.  Observations from the discussions and key takeaways will serve as a useful reference for formulating IRB-friendly policies and in the development of capacity building initiatives.
