Accelerating New Digital Talent Indonesia

Since the COVID-19 pandemic, public consumption has played an important role in maintaining the economy. Shifts in consumer behaviour, demographic conditions and technological developments are increasingly driving the increase in global consumption. The digital native population will certainly become the pillar of global consumption in the future.

The development of the digital economy in Indonesia is currently still a challenge. The need for infrastructure, human resources, digital literacy, regulation and mindset is very important for Indonesia to increase the use of technology in order to build a strong digital economy.

Various efforts have been made by the Government to accelerate the creation of new digital talent and the development of a digital-based economy has been carried out through improving digital infrastructure, training, issuing regulations, providing the MSME ecosystem, and providing financing.

In 2022, technology adoption is expected to grow rapidly. The next industrial transformation will lead to “Society 5.0 or Society of Intelligence” where the physical space and cyber world will be tightly integrated. The boom of new technologies such as Metaverse, Blockchain, NFT, and Web 3.0 will also become a new trend in every line of people’s lives. Therefore, the young generation in Indonesia must be prepared to master the various skills required in these fields.

In the same year, Indonesia also holds the baton of the G20 Presidency. In this Presidency, Indonesia carries the theme “Recover Together, Recover Stronger”. This theme was raised to encourage an inclusive, strong, and sustainable global economic recovery, in which digital-based transformation itself is one of the priority issues in the 2022 Indonesia G20 Presidency.

In support of the Indonesian G20 Presidency, the theme raised is “Digital Economic Transformation for Economic Recovery in the Era of the COVID-19 Pandemic”. It is hoped that this theme can also motivate the students who attend to improve their quality, so that they can compete in the digital economy, therefore they can contribute to the recovery of the national economy.

acceleration in improving the quality of human resources would require coordination and synergy with all parties. So the concept of “pentahelix” development, in which elements of the government, society or community, university academics, entrepreneurs and the media unite to build togetherness in development is the key.

Since the importance of human resources as the main capital for national development, the government is also committed to improving the quality of Indonesian human resources through the 2022 State Budget, by providing an education budget that reaches Rp542.8 trillion. The main goals of digital transformation. In the last 2 years, the use of digital technology has accelerated through online learning from home, so it can be seen that most are able to take advantage of digital technology.

As reported by OpenGov Asia, To improve the quality of learning, including for madrasahs (Islamic schools), Indonesia improves efforts in digital transformation for education. The Ministry of Religious Affairs has made efforts to help madrasahs in Indonesia to adopt digital technology. In 2021, the ministry prepared the Madrasah Affirmation Assistance fund of Rp.399.9 billion implemented through the Realising Education’s Promise Madrasah Education Quality Reform program targeted at 2,666 madrasahs in the country.

The assistance is yet to target all madrasahs in Indonesia due to the ministry’s limited funds. For reporting, he affirmed that the ministry had implemented the e-RKAM system as an e-planning and e-budgeting for madrasahs. Therefore, the accountability of reports regarding the assistance for madrasahs can be guaranteed.

The madrasah digitalisation program had been carried out since 2019 before the COVID-19 pandemic hit Indonesia. Several programs had been carried out, including revising the technical guidelines for the utilisation of the school operational assistance (BOS) funds so that they can be used to support the online learning system.
