Indonesia 2019 - ICT

Some 70% of Indonesia’s citizens are under the age of 39, and many are mobile-first and digital native consumers, making the ICT market very attractive to purveyors of data services, applications, software and hardware. Developing domestic ICT infrastructure has been a key goal of President Joko Widodo’s administration. When his administration took office in October 2014, it unveiled an Rp278trn ($19.7bn) broadband connectivity plan, designed to spur broad-based and inclusive economic growth, with a 35,000-km, nationwide fibre-optic network, the Palapa Ring, as its centrepiece. This chapter also contains interviews with Rudiantara, Minister of Communication and IT; Nadiem Makarim, CEO, GOJEK; and Dian Siswarini, CEO & President Director, XL Axiata.
