Boosting Indonesia-Australia Cooperation in Digital Technology

The Representatives of the Indonesian Government in Australia have consistently pushed cooperation in digital technology and innovation, as recently demonstrated by the Government of Indonesia’s support for e-commerce’s partnership with the Victorian government in Australia. The e-commerce has set up an R&D Hub in Melbourne, Victoria, which becomes Bukalapak’s first international base for research and development centres. The opening of the hub will enable e-commerce to access Victoria’s capabilities and pool of talent in digital technology and innovation and at the same time to explore cooperation opportunities with Victorian universities.

A tech all-commerce company that is driven to transform lives through technology is committed to continuing to grow and develop its innovative services through a robust tech team. Melbourne’s tech ecosystem is an ideal base for Bukalapak to establish this tech hub, which enables Indonesia’s tech talent to work together with tech professionals from Australia and around the world.

The opening of the tech hub will open a new path to improve both countries’ digital technology ecosystems. Moreover, the digital transformation is also very important since it is one of the priorities of Indonesia’s presidency in G20 in 2022. The IA-CEPA is also expected to encourage deeper cooperation more than a tech hub.

– Dr Siswo Pramono, Indonesian Ambassador to Australia

Victoria is known as one of the centres for the development of digital technology and innovation in Australia. The Victorian Government has implemented policies and allocated budgets to encourage its digital technology and innovation development, including through international collaboration. At the same time, Indonesia is also determined in developing its digital technology ecosystem, among others, by cooperating with world-class digital ecosystem development centres. In the future, the Indonesian Representative in Australia will continue to encourage increased digital cooperation between the two countries, including through capacity and technology development cooperation.

Indonesia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Australian Embassy have signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) on Digital Cooperation and Development of Trilateral Cooperation on the sideline of the Annual Press Statement of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Indonesia. The LOI on Digital Cooperation aimed to strengthen cooperation, consultation, and collaboration between Indonesia and Australia in the development of digital diplomacy, which includes increasing human resource capacity and developing digital infrastructure.

Through this LOI, Indonesia and Australia would jointly develop the use of digital tools to strengthen diplomacy. This collaboration is a follow-up to the Regional Conference on Digital Diplomacy. The LOI was expected to trigger Indonesia’s digital diplomacy cooperation with other countries, especially in the Asia Pacific region. This LOI also aims to increase collaboration among countries in the region and serves as a steppingstone to follow up the results of the Regional Conference on Digital Diplomacy.

As reported by OpenGov Asia, the Ministry of Communications and Informatics is an enabler for the Indonesian people to enter the industrial era 4.0. To carry out this task requires a strong commitment and collaboration with ministries, institutions and the ecosystem. Indonesia and even around the world will continue to talk about digitalisation. For Indonesia, the main task and basic foundation are entrusted to us, because the Ministry is an enabler for the Indonesian people to enter industry 4.0.

The Ministry has the goal of ushering Indonesia into the digital era through optimal community participation. This includes ensuring mitigation of the impacts of digitalisation so that our national digital space is useful and useful. The President entrusted this task and responsibility to the Ministry of Communication and Informatics and we are accountable to the President and to the community, nation and state.
