Digital trade to be biggest support for Indonesian economy by 2030
The research was jointly conducted by AlphaBeta, the Hinrich Foundation and the Centre for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), titled the Digital Komodo Dragon: How Indonesia can capture digital trade opportunity at home and abroad.
The sectors that can benefit from digital trade include agriculture and food, education and training, consumer and retail, infrastructure, resources, financial services, manufacturing and health.
“Digital trade could help businesses [...] identify and enter new markets easily,” AlphaBeta associate Genevieve Lim said during the report’s release on Tuesday.
“Market identification used to be costly and risky, but now, all enterprises have to do is register through any existing platform and start selling.” (bbn)
