Accelerating Digital Transformation in Indonesia: Technology, Market, and Policy
The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and East Asia have made remarkable achievements in economic development. Whether the region can continue its rapid growth will to a great extent depend on how well it manages the digital transformation. An indepth understanding of the advantages and disadvantages of ASEAN Member States and other countries in the region will help smooth the digital transformation and unleash the development potential in the digital era. In this context, the ERIA has undertaken a series of policy-oriented research projects on the digital economy since 2016. These studies aim to provide policy suggestions for ASEAN and East Asia on how to accelerate the pace of digital transformation in the region with a balance between efficiency and inclusiveness, and in the long term, how to synchronise the interaction amongst digitalisation, competition, innovation, and human development in Asian development.
