Theme: Humanising Technology for Resilient and Sustainable Futures

The 5th ASEAN BUSINESS, ENGINEERING, AND TECHNOLOGY SYMPOSIUM offers great opportunity to the academicians, researchers, scholars, industrial experts and scientists to share knowledge and discuss the current development within the business, engineering and technology disciplines.
