4th Annual Indonesia OpenGov Leadership Forum 2019

The 4th Annual Indonesia OpenGov Leadership Forum 2019 held on July 18th brought together over 300 participants from national and state government ministries, agencies, departments along with FSI, healthcare and education sectors to exchange ideas and experiences.

It was a day filled with stimulating round-table discussions with innovative gamification methods, engaging panels and insightful talks by local and international leaders from FSI and public sector ICT.

Implementation of national knowledge management will be key to development of the Indonesian economy and for the benefit of the next generation.

Dr Ir Hammam Riza, Chairman, Agency for the Assessment and Application of Technology

Dr Ir Hammam Riza, Chairman, Agency for the Assessment and Application of Technology (BPPT) delivered the keynote address on the theme of “Advancing to Indonesia 4.0: How Autonomy and Technology Will Boost the Economy”.

His presentation rested on three key features which he elaborated during the course of his address:

  1. Evolving processes and services with technology to make Indonesia a developed economy
  2. Addressing the gaps and opportunities with Industry 4.0 to grow the nation
  3. Planning what needs to be done to reach the vision

Dr Hammam Riza gave two examples where business process reengineering, and optimum usage of ICT had been deployed to fulfil the orders of the President of the Republic of Indonesia.

One was to reduce the time for export and import goods (dwelling time) from 8 days to 4.7 days.

The second was to cut red-tape and simplify bureaucracy through the Online Single Submission (OSS) system that accepted submissions of 20 licenses.

Dr Riza talked about Presidential Regulation No. 95 of 2018 concerning the Electronic-Based Governance System (SPBE) which is a new chapter for governance or government management in Indonesia. Based on this policy, all government agencies must implement SPBE, better known as e-government.

Dr Riza reminded the delegates of seven leading principles of digital government as below:

  1. Effectiveness
  2. Integration
  3. Sustainability
  4. Efficiency
  5. Accountable
  6. Interoperability
  7. Security

Though spending on IT in government is substantial, Dr Riza explained, the expected impact has as yet not been seen.

The integration of electronic-based governance systems or e-government between the central and regional governments could cut state spending.

Close to 65 % of the implementation of electronic-based government is integrated nationally (Aplikasi Umum) while there are also several e-government applications (35%) that cannot be integrated as they are extremely specific in nature (Aplikasi Khusus).

Dr Riza stressed the importance of implementation of national knowledge management for the development of the Indonesian economy and for the benefit of the next generation.

Moving forward with Industry 4.0 – Society 5.0 

Drawing a comparison between China, Korea, and Indonesia, Dr Riza said that Indonesia is working towards achieving high-income status for the country and use of science and technology is going to help propel it. He reiterated Indonesia’s commitment to achieving IR 4.0 and Society 5.0.

He concluded his address by saying that Indonesia is poised to become among the top five high-income countries by the year 2030 and the top four by the year 2045.
