About the event

The Department for International Trade North West is inviting innovative businesses who are experienced in exporting and looking for new markets in digital, technology and associated services to participate in this first ever Northern Powerhouse virtual trade mission to Indonesia.

What is going in Indonesia's technology sector?

Indonesia is the fourth biggest country in the world, both in terms of population size and number of active Internet users (World Bank 2018 data). With an Internet economy expected to reach US$ 130 billion by 2025 (e-Conomy SEA 2019 report) Government’s ambition is to achieve Industry 4.0 resulting in the need for Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data and cutting-edge technology for implementation across all sectors.

Digital Technology Opportunities identified:
  • In food and beverage, customized healthy food and beverage products, digital tools to reduce material waste, and digital platforms to integrate sales channels 
  • In automotive, electric, hybrid, and autonomous vehicles; AI for decision-making in production processes; quality control and predictive maintenance; and the use of big data for quality verification and traceability 
  • In textiles and clothing, new products with digital features such as heartrate and distance monitoring, e-commerce platforms; and virtual 3D modelling for optimization of industrial processes 
  • In electronics, automatic domestic lighting products; security and energy-efficiency systems, health-care mobile applications; and real-time data for smart agriculture 
  • In footwear, “smart products” such as shoes with automatic size adjustment, and e-commerce platforms for direct communication with suppliers and customers
