With the fourth largest population in the world, according to the Minister of Trade Lutfi, Indonesia is currently undergoing a transformation to become the largest digital economy power in the world.
He projects that by 2030 the value of Indonesia's digital economy will reach IDR4,531 trillion, equivalent to 18 percent of domestic GDP. Therefore, Lutfi continued, his office strongly encourages the presence and growth of new start-ups in Indonesia such as Briefer to become one of the backbones of the national digital economy.
On a separate occasion, Minister of Investment/Head of BKPM Bahlil Lahadalia also expressed the same hope for Briefer. He hopes that this platform can be a digital meeting point for the collaboration of MSME players with the communication and creative industries in Indonesia.
Thus, the presence of Briefer can further increase the growth of the digital economy in the country. "This is a platform that makes it easy for creative industry players who will raise their products from MSMEs themselves. Hopefully it can generate and accelerate the digital and creative economy in Indonesia in the future," Bahlil said.
Meanwhile, Bank Indonesia Senior Deputy Governor Destry Damayanti said that the presence of Briefer was very interesting, as communication occurs rapidly in the digital era. Briefer can be a place so that communication needs will be more precise and faster.
"I think the existence of this Briefer will be very helpful, not only in developing the ecosystem of all actors in the communications sector, but it will also make all transactions and developments of the communication industry more optimal,” she said.
