Dr. Santhi Kanoktanaporn, Secretary-General of the Asian Productivity Organization (APO) said that as a leading intergovernmental organization in the Asia-Pacific region, the APO is committed to helping member economies improve productivity and competitiveness by adopting digital technologies, including Industry 4.0 tools.
