Our Digital Future


Digital is changing the way we live, work and play. How can small states thrive in this digital world? How do we work together to play a bigger, outsized role internationally? Watch what our smallest (but most important!) stakeholders have to say about the role of small states in building our common digital future.

The Forum of Small States (FOSS) is an informal grouping of small states established and chaired by Singapore since its inception in 1992 to discuss issues of mutual concern. In conjunction with the 30th Anniversary of FOSS in 2022, we introduced Digital FOSS as a new pillar of engagement within FOSS. Digital FOSS will provide a platform for small states to support one another on their digital transformation journeys and work together to architect a common digital future.

Digital FOSS supports the implementation of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and efforts to establish a Global Digital Compact.

Mr Lew Chuen Hong, Chief Executive, IMDA, launched Digital FOSS at the 30th anniversary FOSS reception held in Geneva, Switzerland, on 24 October 2022. His remarks at the reception can be found here (163.26KB).
