The concept of digital intelligence (DQ) has been defined in numerous ways in the literature oriented towards a global understanding of our digital life. In fact, DQ has recently emerged as a key demographic factor, impacting the socio-economic activities of the Greater Mekong subregion. The current research aims to understand national policies, research areas, and educational sectors that influence and enhance DQ, as well as to provide an overview of the current DQ status in the Greater Mekong subregion. The literature review method has been used in the current study to explore the characteristics of DQ in Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam. The findings show the efforts of these countries to develop and apply information technology to boost digital competence in different fields. Furthermore, the study reveals the limitations of government policy/programs and the digital capabilities of citizens in each country which affect policymakers, organizations, and individuals involved in formulating policies, strategies, and action plans to enhance DQ competence in a global context.
