The Association is pleased to have partnered with Global Business Reports (GBR) for their Singapore Chemicals 2021 Digital Report which featured ASPRI Executive Director, Mr Wayne Yap.
In his interview, Mr Yap explained how ASPRI supported its members during the pandemic and how Covid-19 is pushing digitalisation across the sector.
“ASPRI continues to be an active nexus for members to receive industry specific advisories, and more importantly, as a help-desk for members to quickly seek clarification on newly enacted measures and for government agencies to interface,” Mr Yap explained.
“During the circuit breaker, our training division, ASPRI-Institute of Process Industry (ASPRI-IPI) had to cease classroom-based trainings and in May 2020, ASPRI-IPI launched a series of free e-learning modules to allow workers to refresh safety knowledge and refine their craftsmanship, all from their own homes,” he added.
When asked about digitalisation in the industry, Mr Yap stated, “Digitalisation has been thrown into the spotlight and it has embarked on an upward trend. Companies have moved fast to keep up with their peers in embracing digital solutions not previously considered.”
“Because employers were no longer able to distribute salaries as cash or checks, more companies jumped on the bandwagon of digital payments. The fact that e-payments are becoming commonplace marks a fundamental shift and an upward move in the value chain. ” he added.
