Explore enhancing cooperation related to digital transformation, Minister PANRB hopes to learn from Australia

As a follow-up to the visit to Australia to directly observe good practices in government digitization there at the end of 2023, the Ministry of PANRB explores digital transformation cooperation.

Minister of Administrative and Bureaucratic Reform (PANRB) Abdullah Azwar Anas met with Australian Chargé d’Affaires to Indonesia Steve Scott to explore opportunities for enhancing Indonesia-Australia cooperation focusing on digital transformation. This cooperation is expected to provide many learning experiences in implementing integrated digitalization and data policies within the successful GovTech framework implemented in Australia.

"We hope to also be provided with lessons learned in the implementation of integrated digitalization and data policies within the GovTech framework in Australia, thus becoming our learning experience in the still very new implementation in the Indonesian government," said Minister PANRB during the meeting, which was also attended by teams from the Digital Transformation Agency (DTA) and the Indonesia Australia Partnership Program for Economic Development (Prospera), Tuesday (19/03) as quoted from the Ministry of PANRB press release.

At the end of 2023, Minister PANRB and the team visited Australia to directly observe good practices in government digitization there. Through this visit, they gained a deep understanding of the implementation of technology in improving public service efficiency in Australia.

Anas mentioned that Australia has synergized data and digital to promote inclusive public services focusing on community welfare, such as MyGov and Digital ID. These initiatives are similar to Indonesia's GovTech implementation in 2024.

"We focus on basic public services, such as education, health, and social services, similar to Australia's Digital ID. Therefore, the Indonesian government also strives for it," he said.

During the meeting, Minister Anas also proposed two measures to strengthen Indonesia-Australia collaboration. First, cooperation related to government services to support social welfare services in Indonesia, so through the role of the Ministry of PANRB as the chair of the National SPBE Coordination Team, it can coordinate with various relevant agencies in implementing cooperation to realize public services with a focus on social welfare services.

The second proposal is the signing of a memorandum of understanding between Minister PANRB and Minister for Finance, Minister for Women, Minister for the Public Service Katy Gallagher in the form of technical assistance for priority transformation initiatives as well as knowledge transfer and government digitization practices from both countries.
