East Ventures Digital Competitiveness Index 2021
Indonesia’s accelerating digital economic transformation
The East Ventures Digital Competitiveness Index 2021 is a report by East Ventures, assessing Indonesia’s digital economic condition – both strengths and weaknesses of each region, to provide a viewpoint of the massive opportunities that lie in the country.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, digital adoption in Indonesia has undeniably accelerated, reaching 73% internet penetration rate across Indonesia’s 34 provinces and 25 major cities.
As an archipelago, digital technology adoption and development in the country has been distinctive and highly fragmented. With huge urban-rural inequality, as well as a large infrastructure developmental gap between Java –the most populous island- and other major islands in the country, Indonesia’s biggest obstacle is to close the yawning digital divide.
Indonesia’s digital competitiveness index score increased by 4.13 points compared to EV-DCI 2020. The median score of 34 provinces also increased, meaning that digital competitiveness has been even between provinces even though the digital climate and ecosystem are still centered around the provinces in Java.
