Explore the increasing opportunities for collaboration between Indonesia and Australia in the digital sector. The Forum aims to deepen and expand cooperation between thought leaders and practitioners from the Indonesian and Australian government, private sector and academia. Participants will discuss the possibilities and challenges of the digital age and consider opportunities to develop new partnerships. Join a series of workshops and seminars designed to encourage practical approaches to delivering shared solutions that will last beyond this event’s conclusion. The event will feature five streams, focusing on the Creative Industries, Cyber Security, Digital Health, FinTech and Start-ups, and Smart Government.
Technology is changing the business of government in both Indonesia and Australia. Open government, online services and big data have the potential to transform planning, decision-making, service delivery and transparency.
Bringing together Indonesian participation from government, start-ups, entrepreneurs and researchers, this stream will focus on governments’ readiness for this change, opportunities for harnessing technology for smart, agile and responsive government and using technology to overcome disparity and promote inclusion.
This program will focus on a discussion of the role of digital health in the future of health services delivery in Indonesia, and potential areas of bilateral cooperation. This stream will include Indonesian participation from government, hospitals and the medical profession.
Participants will have the opportunity to understand the context of Indonesian healthcare in depth and meet the most progressive players in the sector, who are already seeking digital technologies and services to meet the challenges of delivering access to high-quality, universal healthcare.
International investors are attracted to Indonesia’s potential as one of the world’s largest digital consumer markets. In 2017, US$3 billion in early stage investment into the sector represented a 16- fold increase in just five years. The FinTech and Start-ups program introduces the ecosystem in Indonesia and will examine opportunities and challenges for digital, fintech and start-up innovation.
IADF participants will share insights and discuss collaboration between entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, accelerators and incubators and investigate specific opportunities in fintech including investor education, identity authentication, banking for the unbanked, payments for micro-transactions, investing in small scale entrepreneurs and reimagining credit.
Australia and Indonesia have a strong shared interest in cyber security as an enabler of prosperity. The cyber security program will focus on building connections between Australian and Indonesian industry and government and mapping areas of new cooperation. Indonesia – with a youthful population of more than 250 million – is the largest economy in South East Asia, with high levels of internet penetration and smart phone ownership amongst an expanding middle-class.
This stream will bring together cyber security businesses, customers, industry experts, training providers and policy makers from both countries, to identify opportunities and next priorities for cyber security in Indonesia.
The digital creative sector, including games, apps and animation, offers significant commercial opportunities in Australia and Indonesia. Other areas of the creative economy, such as visual and performing arts, fashion and literature, are also exploring opportunities within the digital sphere.
This program will provide a platform to share perspectives and develop concepts for greater Australia-Indonesia cooperation in the creative industries. It will also provide opportunities to showcase Australian and Indonesian capabilities in the creative sector to representatives from government, arts and cultural institutions, creative industry bodies, and the games, apps and animation industry.
