The Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy, Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno, recently organized a digital training event for micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in the West Denpasar District of Denpasar City in Bali.
The main aim of this event was to encourage domestic MSMEs to expand their reach beyond Indonesia and to become global players in the creative economy sector.
Sandiaga expressed his belief that creative economy actors can have a significant impact on economic recovery and job creation.
The digital training event was organized in collaboration with movers of creative economy MSMEs in Bali, to open up new business opportunities and create 4.4 million job opportunities by 2024.
Sandiaga is optimistic that this goal can be achieved with the support of trained and mentored young generations who can demonstrate a creative, innovative, productive, and competitive spirit in building businesses.
The minister emphasized the importance of digital training and knowledge mentoring for MSMEs, which can help workers quickly adapt and improve their skills, such as upskilling, reskilling, and new skilling.
By doing so, the workforce can stay competitive and continuously hone their skills, thereby supporting the growth of the creative economy sector.
Sandiaga believes that trained and mentored young people can work collaboratively with the elderly to open up business opportunities as widely as possible, thus reducing unemployment and advancing the creative economy sector in Indonesia.
Overall, the digital training event organized by Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno reflects the government’s commitment to supporting the growth of the creative economy sector in Indonesia, as well as to creating new job opportunities and promoting economic recovery.
Therefore, the government’s focus on digitalization in all sectors is also part of a broader strategy to support economic growth and prepare for the relocation of the capital city to East Kalimantan.
As stated by Bank Indonesia (BI) which asked the Provincial Government (Pemprov) of DKI Jakarta to focus on controlling inflation and implementing digitalization in all sectors to support economic growth in addition to preparing to move the national capital.
“We see that three challenges need to be addressed and responded to in the future, namely preparing to move the capital city, controlling inflation, and implementing digitalization,” BI Deputy Governor Juda Agung said during the inauguration of the Head of BI DKI Representative in Jakarta, Friday.
