Netflix today signed a pledge to partner with the World Economic Forum's (WEF) Digital ASEAN working group to help people and governments in Southeast Asia develop creative and digital skills and capabilities for the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

The pledge is part of WEF's ASEAN Digital Skills Vision 2020 programme, a private-public project involving a coalition of organisations that seeks to train up 20 million workers in digital skills by 2020. The initiative gained further urgency when a recent WEF-commissioned survey of 56,000 ASEAN youths found that 52% believed they needed to upgrade their skills constantly to succeed in a changing job market. On top of that, they ranked creativity and innovation as the most important skill for their future.
