Undeniably, COVID-19 has heralded in an acceleration in digital transformation, especially in Malta where digital uptake had traditionally been slow across many sectors prior to the pandemic.

With this in mind, has the resulting technology created value on its own merit?

This timely topic will be discussed during the Central Bank of Malta’s (CBM) first webinar of the year.

The speaker, Ladan Davarzani, will also discuss whether industries and economies have captured the associated benefits, driving investment and innovations that outlast the pandemic. The CBM’s chief economist, Aaron G. Grech, will introduce the subject.

The online webinar, “Digital Transformation: Realising the full value of emerging technologies”, will be held on 12th March at 11 am on Microsoft TEAMS. Participation is free and open to the public. There will be time for questions. Online registration is required on the CBM’s website or by sending an email.
