“G20 identify digitalization as the most important point, The use of digital technology is a key factor, enabling factor to develop the MSME in the context of resilient recovery in this country and other country,” said. Norimasa Shimomura, Resident Representative of UNDP Indonesia during the event. He further steered the discussion on the rising phenomenon of digital economy in Indonesia, seeing the opportunities ahead.
Indeed, tapping into these opportunities is the key to fully benefit the digital economy. The emergence of digital economy provides an opportunity to reset the balance of socio and economic inequality in a country where digital connectivity remains a challenge in remote areas, along with critical access to health and education.
Therefore, as the government and other stakeholders advocate for more direct investment, capacity building, and research in the digital economy, a stronger commitment to inclusion and sustainability should be the strategic plan's cornerstone.
