AmCham Indonesia’s Platinum members met the newly appointed Minister of Communications and Information Technology (Kominfo) Budi Arie Setiadi at his office on Sept 12.
The meeting was moderated by AmCham Chairman Douglas Ramage. Members raised a number of issues, including cross-border data exchange, digital infrastructure development, artificial intelligence (AI), and the Personal Data Protection (PDP) Law.
Minister Budi also outlined his priority plans leading up to the 2024 general elections, such as ensuring a peaceful election process by eliminating ethnicity-religion-race-and-inter-group (SARA) issues, fake news, and hoaxes; the new capital city Nusantara (IKN); developing digital talent; the digital infrastructure master plan; and an AI code of conduct.
He also welcomed input and discussion from the private sector. AmCham Indonesia will continue to engage the Ministry going forward.
