This Industry 4.0 Working Group is part of a two years’ program consisting of three pillars; the Working Group itself- whereby participants exchange ideas on Industry 4.0 and jointly develop business cases for implementation; the Mentoring Program (Twe Kaw – Pha Leh) – where mentors from the German business community will provide guidance and assistance to young Myanmar entrepreneur the mentees; and the Industry 4.0 in Myanmar Conference conceptualized as a High-Level Stakeholder Conference with an expected 200 expert guests.
