In response to this, the Ministry of Communication and Informatics invites universities to create digital talents in Indonesia, because the Communication and Information Technology cannot work alone, and needs to be supported by universities. The Research and Human Resources Development Agency of the Ministry of Communication and Informatics has created various excellent programs funded by a talent scholarship program in order to prepare digital talents in various aspects and various segments, targeted in parallel and ready to use in the industrial world, and in everyday life.
In terms of e-commerce or MSMEs, currently 50 percent are not digital literate, so they will be encouraged to go digital. Let's rise up, let's go digital for the betterment of Indonesia, hopes the Head of the Research and Development Agency for Human Resources Kominfo.
