Indonesia’s Digital Transformation Journey

The G20 Indonesia Presidency forum in 2022 is an important momentum in realising national digital transformation. Through the Digital Economy Working Group (DEWG), the Ministry of Communication and Informatics will present the Digital Transformation Expo (DTE) as a showcase for Indonesia’s achievements and efforts in accelerating digital transformation, as well as attracting investment in the digital sector.

We want to make the Digital Transformation Expo a showcase for Indonesia’s digital transformation journey. We will show the world, especially the G20 member countries, that Indonesia is experiencing rapid development in the digital field and is able to use it as a solution.

– Mira Tayyiba, Secretary-General, Ministry of Communications and Informatics

The long journey of national digital transformation has its own charm. This is because Indonesia has succeeded in achieving its digital infrastructure development target a decade earlier, showing the rapid development of digital technology in Indonesia. The development of the digital technology ecosystem today is much different from the developments that occurred in previous years. In fact, Indonesia’s digital economy ecosystem has succeeded in encouraging the emergence of new unicorns in the midst of a pandemic.

The scope of Indonesia’s digital transformation is growing and broad, not only following trends but actually being present as a solution for the community. By demonstrating the success of the digital sector, the Digital Transformation Expo can increase investment interest in G20 member countries in Indonesia. The government also underlined the huge potential of the digital sector in Indonesia. The government will present experiences and visuals using the latest technology.

Through collaboration between government, industry, society and relevant stakeholders, DTE will become a stage with Indonesia as a unified whole. This forum will not only be owned by the Ministry but will become a stage for Indonesia to show that we are a big country. We have the power of significant digital transformation growth and development, even though we are currently experiencing the COVID-19 pandemic.

Indonesia’s digital transformation focuses on 10 priority sectors to expedite the realisation of digital infrastructure, government, economy, and society. The 10 sectors are digital transportation and tourism, digital trade, digital financial services, digital media and entertainment, digital agriculture and fisheries, digital real estate and urban, digital education, digital health, industrial digitisation, and government digitisation.

The government had compiled a Digital Indonesia Roadmap for 2021-2024 as a strategic guide to drive the nation’s digital transformation process, “Safe Transactions in the Digital Era”. The guide contains 100 key initiatives to be implemented in collaboration with all ministries, central and regional institutions, business actors, and the general public in Indonesia in the 10 priority sectors.

The coronavirus pandemic and the 4.0 industrial revolution are among the catalytic factors that expedite the digital transformation agenda. This momentum can also encourage economic transformation in three main focus areas, specifically economic downstreaming, especially in the digital sector, digitising Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises and the green economy.

As reported by OpenGov Asia, the Ministry of Communications and Informatics will raise the priority issue of Cross Border Data Flow and Data Free Flow with Trust or Reliable Data Flow and Free Flow in the Digital Economy Working Group (DEWG) in the G20 Indonesia Presidency. To answer the challenges of managing cross-border data flow policies, which have a different approach for each country, Indonesia will facilitate dialogue in the G20 forum to build a common understanding.

The discussion of data will be more complex when it comes to data traffic between countries. Because digital technology is borderless, it means that digital data can flow between countries. This becomes more complex when it comes to cross-border data flows, because each jurisdiction may have different data management procedures. This difference is a natural thing because digital technology is borderless, meaning it can flow between countries. It is different when we talk about data in certain jurisdictions, for example, when we measure data still in Indonesia. The issues are complex, but the arrangements are uniform.
