All segments of society can benefit through the digital economy, whether for work, lifestyle or community interactions. While this helps our people to flourish in a digital economy, more importantly, the ambition is to ensure that no one is left behind in an increasingly digitalised world. Access to digital skills and confidence in using technology is thus a priority for the Government.
The Digital Readiness Blueprint sets out the Government’s plans for Singaporeans to possess basic skills and confidence to use digital tech in all areas of their daily lives, coupled with infrastructure that is accessible. The Ministry of Communications and Information (MCI) has set up a Digital Readiness Programme Office to plan and drive programmes in building a digital society.
