Chinese tech companies are on an Asian roll. Alibaba counts Southeast Asia market as one of the primary destinations of its globalization drive. What are the underlying factors pushing Chinese companies to Southeast Asia? ORIGIN, a content track run by TechNode, dives deep into the basis of China and Southeast Asia’s technology development. As China’s home front begins to cool, many Chinese tech companies are starting to shift their focus to Southeast Asia. Alibaba no doubt is ahead of it all as it counts Southeast Asia as one of the primary destinations of its globalization drive. But, what truly is the underlying factor pushing Chinese companies to Southeast Asia?

After a successful run last year at SWITCH 2018, TechNode is bringing ORIGIN back again! This year, ORIGIN will be expanding beyond the shores of Singapore to help more people around Southeast Asia (SEA) region to understand why and how to get involved in this new stage of China-ASEAN development. By uniting critical players from the Chinese and Southeast Asian tech community at this conference, ORIGIN provides the best opportunity to gain valuable global connections and interaction through its industry conference.

On 21st June 2019, ORIGIN will be running its 2nd edition of ORIGIN in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia during the Malaysia Tech Week 2019*. This conference will be the first in Malaysia to unite all in the tech and business ecosystem for an intense 4-hours line-up of events revolving around topics such as FinTech, Artificial Intelligence, Islamic Digital Economy, E-commerce, Venture Investments, and micro-influencers.
