Taking into consideration the business continuity and industry feedback, it is therefore important to hear from the perspective of government and industries for a successful program. 

This panel discussion features the open conversation between government and private sector to ensure the productivity of the blueprint. This includes the strategies for proper implementation, adoption, and supply chain consideration in view of the various sectors.
