Huawei Reiterates Continued Contributions to Indonesian Digital Ecosystem


In observance of the Islamic Day of Sacrifice or Eid al-Adha 1443 H, Huawei reaffirms its commitment to supporting the Indonesian economy ecosystem by optimizing the use of digital technology. The support was symbolically conveyed through the sacrificial animal being handed over by Mohamad Rosidi, Director of Business Strategy, Huawei Indonesia to Sutrisno, Caretaker of At Thohir Mosque in Cimanggis, Depok, West Java during Huawei’s Qurban CSR donation ceremony.

Yenty Joman, Director of Government Affairs, Huawei Indonesia remarked,”Huawei “Huawei I Do” commitment affirms our support to Indonesian digital ecosystem, especially in the post-pandemic recovery. As a global ICT solution provider, Huawei believes that digital technology can be main driver for people’s empowerment. Technology can enhance the capacity of organizations and individuals to create more mature ecosystems.

To nurture Indonesian digital talents since 2020, Huawei has been collaborating with the government, academics, industries and other ecosystem partners, to train 100 thousand digital talents by 2025. Currently more than 60 thousand digital talents have received training on the latest ICT technologies.”

Sarwoto Atmosutarno, chairman of the Indonesian Telematics Society (Mastel), lauded Huawei’s crucial role in driving digital transformation across the ecosystem in collaboration with the industry. “The industry will continue to support the government in expediting the economic recovery. We welcome Huawei’s global experience and expertise that may help the Indonesian ecosystem, especially the local industries, to raise our bar in international benchmark of technology standards, get digital infrastructure ready and improve the network infrastructure, all are the prerequisites for the digital transformation.” 

Concurred with Sarwoto, Ir. Soegiharto Santoso, chairman of the Indonesian Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Business (Aptiknas), highlighted digital talent development to build a sustainable digital ecosystem. “Every stakeholder should take part in preparing the talents and equip them with necessary skills of the future. Huawei’s talent initiative should be followed by others should we want to see Indonesia keep in its trajectory in technology advances.


The recent Huawei Qurban donations involving 15 cows and 60 goats were made across 13 cities where Huawei has been operating to reflect the company’s continued commitment to building network connectivity in the country. Those 13 cities are Jakarta, Bandung, Semarang, Yogyakarta, Surabaya, Denpasar, Mataram, Medan, Palembang, Pekanbaru, Pontianak, Makassar, and Fakfak. As a testament to its social contributions, Huawei has joined hands with partners, primarily through the government's USO Project, to accelerate digital inclusion to connect the unconnected, especially those living in remote and rural areas.


According to Muhammad Arif, chairman of the Association of Indonesian Internet Service Providers (APJII), the provision of connectivity is of paramount importance to ensure digital infrastructure can play its chief function as the enabler for transformation. “The pandemic has accelerated the growth of internet users significantly as shown in APJII 2021 survey that records 77 percent of the population has been connected to the Internet, or over 220 million people. However, we should not leave the rest of the population unconnected. Therefore, APJII welcome Huawei’s effort to increase collaboration with internet service providers to provide equal digitalization in Indonesia.”


Voicing a similar emphasis on connectivity, M. Tri Prasetya, Deputy Chairman of the Association of Network Telecommunication Providers (Apjatel) said, the connectivity development should involve a collaborative work among all stakeholders in the ecosystem. “Looking ahead, we need to scale up communications, collaboration, and cooperation among the stakeholders, be it industry associations, the governments and communities, to improve services and expand network services to the public. We commend Huawei’s special contribution in this area.”


Aside from talent development and connectivity building, Huawei plans to create acceleration program for Indonesian start-ups through Huawei Spark. Since the launch of the program in 2020, Huawei already has 60 start-up portfolio in the Asia Pacific region and plans to provide investments worth US$100 million within 3 years.


On the sidelines of the donation ceremony, Huawei also organized a discussion, titled Digital Transformation in Sharia Economy, featuring Muhammad Neil El Himam, M.Sc., Deputy for Digital Economy and Creative Products with the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy, Ir. Eddy Satriya, M.A., Deputy for Micro Enterprises, Ministry of Cooperatives and Small Medium Enterprises, Muhammad Hamudi Bin Abdul Khalid, CEO/Co-founder Orpheus Capital, and Muhammad Dennisa, Program Director of Huawei Spark Malaysia and Heru Sutadi, Executive Director of Indonesia ICT Institute.

Heru Sutadi, Executive Director of Indonesia ICT Institute said that Indonesia needs the solutions which are capable of realizing digital transformation efficiently across all sectors. The success of digitalization hinges on the quality broadband connectivity available to the population. 

“Learning from the pandemic, Indonesia’s internet speed needs to be upgraded up to 100 Mbps and we also need to revise the new regulations on Indonesia broadband plans. The role of technology innovator, like Huawei, is very important and I contend that Huawei has contributed immensely in supporting digital transformation toward economic recovery and digital economy growth in Indonesia.
