Digital Literacy program to support 200 villages in Indonesia

Indonesia’s Communication and Informatics Ministry will start a digital literacy program to provide 200 villages with access to technology skills training and telecommunications infrastructure in remote regions. The main purpose of the program is to incorporate these villages into the digital economy through the collaboration of the different national ministries involved.

According to Sammy Pangirapan, Director General of Application and Informatics of the Ministry, the program is intended to support people from remote villages to engage in entrepreneurism and e-commerce activities so that they can more efficiently make their products available. “Through digital based business, villagers can market their agricultural products to the city directly”, he stated.
