TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Communications and Informatics Ministry on Friday, December 2, 2016, announced cooperation with giant tech company Apple Inc.

“We have signed a cooperation agreement with Apple. They agreed to build a research and development center here [in Indonesia], and they are ready to recruit Indonesians to work with them,” Communications and Information Minister Rudiantara said at the Presidential Palace Complex in Jakarta on Friday, December 2, 2016.

Rudiantara revealed that the cooperation agreement encompasses research and technology and industry development.

“So, in the research and development sector, I will be directly involved. Meanwhile, the industry development sector is Industry Ministry’s jurisdiction,” he said. 

According to the Ministry, the cooperation will provide an opportunity for Indonesia to be a part of Apple’s investment plan.

“Apple will announce [the investment value]. I can say that it’s above Rp100 billion (US$7.6 million),” he revealed, adding that he would invite Apple Inc. to visit Indonesia in late December.
