Indonesia Day - DCI Support Digital Economy Growth
17 August 2019
Seventy-four years Indonesia has been independent. The proclamation of Indonesia’s independence on August 17th, 1945 was not the end of the struggle. The next generation continues to strive forward to build the country and compete on the world stage.
In the last few years, Indonesia has experienced a transformation and it has seen rapid growth in the number of start-ups trying to capitalize on this potential in a growing digital economy. Currently, we have four Indonesian based unicorns companies that have reached USD 1 billion in valuation - including Go-Jek, Traveloka, Bukalapak and Tokopedia.
The Chairman of the McKinsey Global Institute said that Indonesia has the potential to become a developed country by 2030. According to Google and Temasek research, the value of digital economic transactions in Indonesia is predicted to reach USD 100 billion by 2025 which is expected to be the largest in Southeast Asia.
