President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo called for the Government’s integrated digital services in order to improve services to the public.

“I would like to remind you that we still have 9 months. Let us use this momentum to reform the bureaucracy in terms of digitalization since digital transformation is a necessity and the Government’s integrated digital services must be adopted,” he said during a Plenary Cabinet Meeting at the State Palace, Jakarta, Tuesday (01/09).

The President ordered the Cabinet to simplify digital services and prevent excessive budget spent for digital infrastructure.

“There are thousands of digital platforms at ministries and institutions so it must be integrated. There should be no more new applications that only serve as outputs of projects but not make the process, particularly the Government digital services, more easy and simple,” he said.

On that occasion, President Jokowi also called on Minister of State Apparatus Empowerment and Bureaucratic Reforms to speed up implementation of an electronic-based government system (SPBE), to integrate ministries/institutions portals into one national portal, and to strengthen the country’s digital security.

In addition, he also ordered related ministries/institutions to support the acceleration of transformation and public services based on digital services.

“I called on Minister of State-owned Enterprises to support the transformation through state-owned enterprise Perum Peruri [as a primary partner] in realizing GovTech Indonesia; Minister of Home Affairs and Minister of Communication and Informatics to speed up the development and implementation of digital ID in six months; and Minister of Communication and Informatics to immediately transform government cloud policies to accelerate the improvement of our digital services; and the tasks of those ministers will be coordinated by the Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment,” he said.
