STRENGTHS
Indonesia maintains its ranking at 62nd in GCI 2019.

There has not been any significant improvement in its GCI indicators. The majority of the country’s scores remain below the global average, with only 4G coverage showing an improvement. Mobile broadband subscription rates and smartphone penetration peaked last year. Indonesia's 4G coverage is growing steadily, as is the total number of Internet users. The slow development of fixed networks is hindering the nation as it tries to grow digital industries using sluggish ICT equipment. One area of focus could be improving connectivity for home and business use by providing high-quality broadband access throughout Indonesia. By creating better communication access to telecommunications and information, business opportunities and Internet-based employment (e-commerce) would open up. In turn, this would make Indonesia’s labor markets more efficient, and will improve the skills of Indonesian workers in the global market. Indonesia has a population of 260 million according to the United Nations, 93.4 million of whom are Internet users. This population reflects huge potential for e-commerce. GCI indicators show that Indonesia achieved outstanding scores in some dimensions including its legal system, strong telecommunication infrastructure investment by service providers, and the high percentage of the population owning a connected smartphone.
OPPORTUNITIES
The Indonesian government has published the Roadmap for National Electronic Commerce (E-Commerce), which is designed to be a guide to help the central and regional governments to establish policies, and an action plan to accelerate the growth of e-commerce. It also provides guidance for other stakeholders in the organization of e-commerce activities. There are eight major components to the roadmap: funding, taxation, consumer protections, education and human resources, communications infrastructure, logistics, cyber security, and the organizing body.

The Indonesian government has launched various program with specific targets in Go Digital Vision. These include supporting the e-commerce ecosystem and building a solid foundation towards becoming “The Digital Energy of Asia”. “Farmers and fishermen go digital” aims to encourage 1 million local agriculture sector workers to promote or sell their products through various online platforms or e-commerce.
