Policy Discussion: The Urgency of Government Digital Transformation to Respond to Pandemics and National Development

Join “The Urgency of Government Digital Transformation to Respond to Pandemics and National Development” webinar by KSI (Knowledge Sector Initiatives) in collaboration with Katadata on Wednesday, 3 March 2021 at 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM WIB!

Uncertainty amid the COVID-19 pandemic in the economic, social, and political sectors has prompted the government to respond quickly through a policy. To ensure that policies are well targeted to respond to problems quickly, the use of accurate data and evidence is essential. Government digital transformation can support data alignment and accelerate the synthesis of collected evidence, coordination process, synergies, as well as formal and informal coordination between central and local governments.

In realising digital transformation, the government has prepared a number of policies, one of which is the Electronic-Based Governance System (Sistem Pemerintahan Berbasis Elektronik, SPBE). However, in realising those policies, there are various challenges, especially in the policymaking process that is closely related to the political decisions of various actors involved.

The webinar will be moderated by Mulya Amri – Katadata Insight Center Expert Panel, and featuring a keynote speech by Suharso Monoarfa – Minister of National Development Planning/Head of Bappenas.
