All rights reserved. 2022 AWS Hong Kong Digital Skills Study The Economic Benefits of a Tech-Savvy Workforce in Hong Kong Hong Kong is going digital – from the way we work, to the way we live. We are seeing information technology drive significant transformation across the world at the individual, organization, and macroeconomic level. To study these dynamics, Gallup and AWS have conducted one of the largest international surveys to date on digital skills. The study shows that digital skills are providing immense economic value to Hong Kong's employers and workers, raising gross domestic product (GDP), boosting revenue growth and innovation, and increasing wages and job satisfaction. Employees who use some level of digital skills in their job were segmented into three categories: • basic digital skills (e.g., email, word processing, social media posting) • intermediate digital skills (e.g., drag-and-drop website design, troubleshooting applications, data analysis) • advanced digital skills (e.g., cloud architecture or maintenance, software or application development, artificial intelligence and machine learning) Top Takeaways: Digital fluency yields big economic benefits Raising GDP: All levels of digital skills boost Hong Kong's annual GDP by US $47.5 billion 1 . Advanced digital skills raise Hong Kong's annual GDP by an estimated USD $5.4 billion, and global GDP by USD $6.3 trillion due to the increased income and productivity of workers. Employees see higher salaries and job satisfaction Career benefits: 99% of employees in Hong Kong who completed digital skills training in the past year say their career has experienced at least one positive benefit as a result. 1 Income figures in this report are expressed in inflation-adjusted 2022 US dollars Advanced digital skills increase Hong Kong's annual GDP by an estimated USD $5.4 billion.
