Minister of Communication and Information Technology (Menkominfo) Budi Arie Setiadi has announced that the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (Kemenkominfo) is actively working towards realising the vision of accelerating national digital transformation. In this endeavour, the Ministry has adopted a framework known as the Digital Economy Framework Agreement (DEFA).

DEFA encompasses a set of principles and guidelines that are currently at the forefront of discussions during the 43rd ASEAN Summit. This framework encapsulates several crucial aspects of digital transformation, including digital trade, cross-border activities in local markets, digital workforce mobility, competition policies, and cybersecurity measures.

According to Minister Budi Arie Setiadi, presently, Indonesia focuses intensely on enhancing its infrastructure and connectivity as a crucial initial step towards realising its vision of digital transformation. In light of this, key priorities include improving the accessibility of infrastructure networks, refining regulatory frameworks, and establishing user device standards.

These strategic steps form an integral part of Kemenkominfo’s efforts to bring digital transformation to every corner of the nation, providing broader and more affordable access to the public and creating a safer and more competitive environment in the digital realm. With this focus, Indonesia remains committed to advancing itself in the global digital arena.

Furthermore, beyond infrastructure development, Minister Budi Arie Setiadi emphasises that Indonesia is firmly committed to fostering innovation and attracting domestic investments in the fields of technology and artificial intelligence (AI). The objective is strengthening Indonesia’s position in the continuously evolving global technology landscape.

One area receiving particular attention in these investment efforts is the development of human resources in digital technology. This is reflected in implementing three development programmes spanning from basic to advanced levels, all the way to leadership positions. The goal is to nurture a highly knowledgeable generation in technology who will form the backbone of the national digital transformation vision.

To ensure that all these efforts can be executed optimally, the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (Kemenkominfo) steadfastly supports formulating regulations to facilitate effective digital governance.

A vital initiative in this context is drafting a Presidential Regulation by the Ministry of Administrative and Bureaucratic Reform (KemenPAN/RB) concerning the Acceleration of Digital Transformation and the Integration of National Digital Services. This regulation will establish a comprehensive framework to achieve the vision of digital transformation.

Minister Budi Arie Setiadi stressed the importance of having a robust legal framework for digital governance, as it is one of the critical factors determining the success of the accelerated digital transformation vision. Digital transformation involves four key aspects: digital infrastructure, digital governance, digital society, and digital economy.

To bolster digital governance, Budi suggested the creation of an entity that serves as the “orchestrating holding company for national digital transformation.” This could take the form of establishing the National Digital Transformation Acceleration Committee. Cross-Ministry and Agency teams like these will be pivotal in coordinating digital transformation efforts across government sectors and the wider community.

Moreover, the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (Kemenkominfo) is actively working on the development of two critical documents in realising national digital transformation: the “Vision Document for Indonesia Digital 2045” and the “National Digital Transformation Index.” These initiatives aim to provide direction and measure progress in the national digital transformation journey.

It is envisioned that these two studies will contribute significantly and serve as initial references for formulating a roadmap to accelerate digital transformation towards “Indonesia Maju 2045” (Indonesia Prosperous 2045).

The “Vision Document for Indonesia Digital 2045” and the “National Digital Transformation Index,” which are currently in the finalisation phase at the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (Kemenkominfo), are foreseen to form a strong foundation for crafting concrete and practical action plans to realise this vision. With this approach, Indonesia has a solid footing for a future built on advanced technology and comprehensive digital transformation.
