As part of the inaugural launch, the DPA commissioned and published a report from strategy consultancy AlphaBeta titled Prosperous APAC: Digital Economy Enablers. The report was developed to quantify the untapped economic potential of the APAC digital economy and to suggest approaches for governments and industry to fully capture the benefits of the digital economy. The report found that the APAC digital economy strengthened after the COVID-19 pandemic, and that the total digital economy of APAC-11 (representing 11 of the largest APAC economies Australia, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia , Pakistan, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand and Vietnam) has a current value of US$586 billion.
