TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Communications and Informatics Minister Johnny Gerard Plate highlighted Indonesia's four-pronged approach to accelerate digital transformation to establish an ASEAN digital community at the ASEAN Leaders' Statement on Advancing Digital Transformation in ASEAN.

The first strategy encompasses implementing a 2021-2024 Indonesia Digital Roadmap as a strategic guidance to realizing national digital transformation.

"Equal access to quality telecommunications services is the precondition for realizing digital transformation," the minister said in a press release here on Wednesday.

Hence, the government continues to strive to build reliable and even connectivity to reduce the digital divide and increase the ratio of Internet connectivity among the country’s regions.

Indonesia also encourages the establishment of a regulation concerning cross-border data flow to ensure the protection of personal data.

Meanwhile, the fourth strategy focuses on promoting cooperation in recovering and strengthening resilience against the COVID-19 pandemic using digital technology through Indonesia's presidency of the 2022 G20 Forum themed "Recover Together, Recover Stronger."

Hence, Indonesia has also encouraged more intensive cooperation among ASEAN country members for conducting digital transformation in the region, as digitalization can be used to drive faster and inclusive economic recovery.

"We will rise together and recover stronger to realize a digitally connected ASEAN community," Plate remarked.

Meanwhile, the ASEAN Leaders' Statement on Advancing Digital Transformation in ASEAN was initiated by Brunei Darussalam, as the 2021 ASEAN chairman, to realize strategic, inclusive, and sustainable digital transformation in the region.

Hence, the meeting focused on intensifying cooperation between sectoral agencies and the ASEAN Community Pillars to expedite the region’s digital transformation and strengthen cybersecurity cooperation coordinated by the ASEAN Cybersecurity Coordinating Committee, as well as implement the ASEAN Digital Masterplan 2025.
