Indonesia to Secures its Digital Landscape

The Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (MCIT) is committed to fostering closer ties among its departments and institutions, as well as with other stakeholders, to preserve a vibrant and useful online environment. Johnny G. Plate, Minister of Communication and Information stated that MCIT had carried out the commitment by taking down illegal e-commerce and financial technology (fintech) platforms.

“The point is that we are also a clean digital space. If it is not clean, we will definitely take it down,” Minister Johnny said, citing the partnership with the Commodity Futures Trading Supervisory Agency (CoFTRA), which is part of the Ministry of Trade, in order to take decisive action against unlawful online businesses. The MCIT has expressed its hope that members of the public will take an active role in ensuring that the digital realm remains free of information or platforms that are unauthorised or illegal.

On the other hand, Minister Johnny intends to construct their digital economy with the help of legitimate online trade. He added that every citizen can exercise greater discretion by making use of legal fintech that is regulated by state organisations.

This would pave the way for the development of e-commerce platforms and digital banking. The Minister urged to use of legal fintech in the context of digital and cashless banking which is really good and provides support for their healthy economy and financial sector.

He added that the Indonesian government wants to help people learn more about digital technology and wants the next generation to be a generation of initiators, inventors, and innovators who can see opportunities in the digital age and use them for the good of the country and state.

Minister Johnny repeated President Joko Widodo’s message that, in today’s world, which is full of changes, the key to building an Advanced Indonesia is having the courage to change and make new things. This is because acceleration is also done by making the effect of education and industry work together better and by helping people learn how to be entrepreneurs through the Independent Learning Program.

This combined effect is expected to make it faster for the country to get the people it needs while also making domestic industries and products more competitive. He told them to keep working together and build on Indonesia’s strong human resources to make the country more developed, independent, and wealthy.

Combining technical and soft abilities to succeed in digital transformation

Minister Johnny said that learning both technical skills and “soft skills” will help people get the skills that are most needed in the 4.0 industrial revolution. He added that soft skills are known as 4C, which stands for critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication. Together, these four skills will be a big part of Indonesia’s successful digital transformation.

He also thinks that the same combination will make Indonesia’s digital talents more skilled and competitive, which is good for both domestic and international interests. The 4C soft skills are closely connected to what the Indonesian people do, especially the millennials and generation Z, who grew up with social media.

“Don’t let us grow into a nation that is only able to use social media but does not have adequate digital literacy and skills. Not only growing up as social media natives but also as a digitally literate nation,” he ended.
