TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Indonesia will propose three priority issues in the series of Digital Economy Working Group (DEWG) meetings, part of the agenda under the G20 Presidency. Among the issues is the flow of cross-border data.

"Indonesia currently is pushing for an agreement with the G20 countries for data protection," said Communication and Information (Kominfo) Ministry spokesman Dedy Permadi in the discussion on Wednesday, January 26.

Dedy then explained that in 2025, data circulation in the world could reach 453 billion GB daily. Therefore, upon this situation, Kominfo will press on the countries to execute efforts to reduce abuse and attacks on data security.

The next issue is concerning digital literacy. Later on, the ministry will create tool kits for G20 members for an equal digital literacy measurement. "Indonesia will make it, and must be implemented by G20 nations," said the spokesman.

He also said currently Indonesian daily internet usage is 8 hours 25 minutes and is mostly used to access social media and entertainment. Therefore, the government wishes to set it into more productive use, such as online business. In the future, the government will encourage the increase of digital literacy such as the use of big data analysis, artificial intelligence, machine learning, the internet of things, until digital security.

The final issue that Indonesia will propose in the agenda is concerning equal digital access relating to connectivity and post-pandemic recovery.
