Indonesia Reaffirms the National One Data Policy


Indonesian President Joko Widodo underlined the importance of enhancing the one-data policy in the socio-economic registration (Regsosek) of 2022 so that the entire people can be counted and receive necessary benefits from the government.

According to Airlangga Hartarto, Coordinating Minister for the Economy, existing data gathering has not been centred on similar data. This means that several ministries, such as the Ministry of Social Affairs, have mandated data trustees based on the law, such as for integrated data on social welfare, and there are also related to family data and poverty alleviation in targeting the acceleration of the elimination of extreme poverty.

According to Airlangga, the requirement for a single data set is critical since the data classification is more comprehensive and not limited to the needs of a single ministry or organisation. Not only does each ministry possess specialised data, but the national social registration data is regularly updated. Government programmes will be better targeted based on data collected entirely through the census. He thinks that the government’s future will be accelerated because of this data.

Furthermore, President Joko Widodo requested that all data be updated immediately and directed his staff to give all data to the Central Statistics Agency (BPS), which was tasked with collecting statistics on a national scale.

Airlangga continued that data collecting will take place from October through December, employing 400,000 field officers. The accuracy of the data will be even greater for the current data collection because the government will also perform place marking or geotagging in the process – this works as a metadata-based tracker that will identify geographical conditions and is connected to satellites.

Indonesia also employed geotagging to better understand wildlife movement patterns and, as a result, enhance tourism in the region. Moreover, the Ministry of Communication and Information expects that Indonesian SMEs will be able to boost the export value of domestic products and bolster the Proudly Made in Indonesia Movement.

Semuel Abrijani Pangerapan, director general of Information Applications at the Ministry of Communications and Informatics, advises enterprises, particularly exporters and merchants, to take advantage so that their products can be sold domestically and worldwide.

The Director General believes that there are still untapped opportunities for MSMEs and that they must identify these opportunities by employing digital technology to expand and meet the needs of the home and export markets.

In addition, a collaboration agreement has been inked between the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology and the management of digital platforms. The goal of the collaboration is to increase synergy in the process of growing MSMEs’ adoption of digital technologies.

OpenGov Asia previously reported that the development of digital skills for MSMEs is necessary for the online promotion of Indonesian products (e-commerce). Likewise, with digital capabilities, MSMEs should be able to create new technologies or applications that may be utilised by other businesses in the same industry.

To support the effective use of digital space, the Ministry of Communication and Informatics also engages academics, clergy, and the younger generation. The Ministry continues to assist SMBs in selling actively on digital platforms.

After the recent 3rd Digital Economy Working Group (DEWG) Meeting of the G20 Presidency, Johnny G. Plate, Minister of Communication and Information, visited the West Manggarai Regency MSME display pavilion.

The Minister also provides assistance so that MSME entrepreneurs may effectively describe their products and take advantage of technological improvements, such as barcode technology, to sell MSME items and deal with buyers. Local business owners anticipate that the MSME digitalisation process will enable West Manggarai MSMEs to compete on a national and worldwide scale.
