These collaborations can take various forms, including developing joint projects, procuring goods and services, developing strategic alternatives, and creating networks or networking at a technical level with like-minded countries.

An example of such collaborative efforts was highlighted when President Joko Widodo welcomed a high-level delegation from one of the technology companies in the United States to Istana Merdeka. The session was strategic, focusing on the company’s plans to expand its presence in Indonesia and further integrate into the global supply chain. This meeting underscored the proactive steps nations and multinational corporations take to forge partnerships that align technological innovation with economic strategy.

Minister of Communication and Information Technology, Budi Arie Setiadi, conveyed the outcomes of the discussions to the media, “Today, President Widodo and our team had fruitful discussions about the technology company’s strategic plans in Indonesia. We explored how Indonesia could play a more integral role in the global supply chain, which is pivotal for our technological and economic growth.”

Further emphasising the commitment to educational investment, Minister of Industry Agus Gumiwang Kartasasmita announced the expansion of the company’s educational initiatives by adding a fourth Developer Academy Bootcamp in Bali. This new academy joins the existing ones in Surabaya, Batam, and Tangerang, solidifying the ongoing partnership between Indonesia and the technology company in cultivating local talent and fostering innovation in digital technology.

“They announced yesterday the addition of a new facility in Bali. This decision is part of an agreement between Indonesia and the technology company, signifying a mutual commitment to enhancing the tech skills of our youth,” asserted Minister Kartasasmita.

During the discussions, President Widodo encouraged the technology company to consider establishing a manufacturing plant in Indonesia, highlighting that the country already has a range of components necessary for the technology company’s devices. “We will follow up this meeting with a business matching process. We have a list of components for mobile phones already produced here, which could potentially be integrated into the technology company’s supply chain,” Kartasasmita explained.

The President also urged the technology company to partner with Indonesia’s top universities to create an innovation hub to develop the country’s human resources further. “…the CEO expressed interest in this initiative. We discussed at length how such collaborative efforts could boost human development in Indonesia through targeted educational and innovative practices.”

The company’s CEO expressed his optimism about the performance of the existing Developer Academies Bootcamp in Indonesia, citing their success in graduating thousands who have gone on to develop applications for both local and international markets. “We are thrilled to open a fourth Academy in Bali, which was announced just yesterday. The success of our academies here has exceeded our expectations, and we are eager to continue this momentum.”

In response to President Widodo’s request for a local manufacturing plant, Tim considered it seriously part of the technology company’s investment strategy in Indonesia. He highlighted Indonesia’s significant market potential, noting, “The investment opportunities in Indonesia are boundless. We see great potential here, not just for growth but also for innovation, and we are committed to investing here.”

This high-profile meeting underscores both parties’ commitment to leveraging digital technology and IT to boost economic growth and technological innovation in Indonesia. It sets a forward-looking agenda for collaboration between that technology company and Indonesia.

The discussions focused on tangible steps toward deeper integration into the technology company’s global operations and expanding the technological capacity of the Indonesian workforce, exemplifying how strategic partnerships can enhance international supply chain dynamics and facilitate technological advancements.
