Indonesia’s fourth national Internet Governance Forum
Indonesia held its fourth Indonesia Internet Governance Forum (ID-IGF) – National Dialogue – on 27 October. The main theme discussed at the forum was ‘Digital Transformation in Indonesia’, and included assessing the country’s readiness for the digital era. Sovereignty, data protection, privacy, and the necessary skills for Indonesians to bridge the digital gap with other countries were some of the most discussed issues. All in all, the programme featured 12 general topics under four baskets: economy, infrastructure, sociocultural, and laws and regulation. More than 250 people attended the forum and it was the first time that the ID-IGF introduced its youth group.
