The Minister of Communication and Informatics, Budi Arie Setiadi, expressed full support for the Minister of State Apparatus Empowerment and Bureaucratic Reform, Azwar Anas, by providing the necessary digital infrastructure. He emphasised that the Ministry of Communication and Informatics (Kominfo) is ready to accelerate digital transformation and national digital service integration by the directives of Presidential Regulation 82 of 2023. In this context, Kominfo will leverage existing digital infrastructure, including broadband networks and the National Data Centre.

The significance of accelerating national digital transformation is also a primary focus in the Vision of Indonesia Digital 2045, recently announced by the Kominfo. Minister Budi Arie reaffirmed his readiness to synergise with the Ministry of State Apparatus Empowerment and Bureaucratic Reform (PANRB) to expedite digital transformation in Indonesia. In alignment with this vision, Kominfo is committed to supporting PANRB and establishing closer cooperation to facilitate the implementation of Presidential Regulation 95 of 2018 on SPBE by their respective duties and responsibilities.

The meeting between Minister Budi Arie Setiadi and high-ranking officials from the Ministry of PANRB in South Jakarta marks a commitment in formulating concrete steps to achieve digital transformation goals.

Minister Budi Arie, accompanied by relevant officials such as the Director-General of Resources and Devices for Posts and Informatics Ismail, the Director-General of Postal and Informatics Organisation Wayan Toni Supriyanto, Acting Secretary-General Imam Suwandi, and Acting Director-General of Informatics Applications I Nyoman Adhiarna, all agreed to collaborate in supporting the successful implementation of digital transformation in the country.

Further, Minister Budi Arie Setiadi emphasised that the fundamental principles of digital development, which involve connecting the unconnected, self-reliance, and digital sovereignty, serve as the foundation for the Kominfo in pioneering the era of digital transformation in Indonesia. With various prepared programmes, the Kominfo plays a crucial role in ensuring that digital transformation flows from upstream to downstream.

One of Kominfo’s primary focuses in realising these efforts is ensuring that 4G mobile services are available evenly across all regions of Indonesia, enabling every segment of society to reap its benefits. Additionally, Kominfo is committed to creating a safe digital space where the public can engage in online activities without concerns about digital security risks. Ensuring the protection of the public is a priority, positioning Kominfo as the vanguard in providing a secure digital environment.

Moreover, Kominfo actively supports the creation of a fair level playing field in related sectors. These efforts aim to enable established and emerging businesses to compete fairly and healthily in the digital world. Supporting digitalisation in all sectors is one of the ways Kominfo encourages economic growth and innovation in Indonesia.

The slogan “Indonesia Terkoneksi: Semakin Digital, Semakin Maju!” (“Indonesia Connected: More Digital, More Advanced!”) serves as the shared spirit and aspiration endorsed by Kominfo. However, downstream activities in all sectors need severe attention and must be implemented simultaneously to achieve this success. The Ministry of Communication and Informatics knows these challenges cannot be overcome in isolation.

Therefore, collaboration between all government entities, societal layers, and business stakeholders is essential to achieving common goals in realising a successful and sustainable digital transformation in Indonesia. Indonesia can only enter the digital era with sustainability progress through collective efforts.

With self-reliance, digital sovereignty, and a collaborative spirit as fundamental principles, Kominfo is ready to play its strategic role in realising Indonesia’s vision of accelerating digital transformation. Indonesia will become a resilient and empowered nation facing challenges and opportunities in this digital era through a holistic approach and close collaboration.
