China Inc. and Indonesia's Technology Future

Dirk van der Kley, Benjamin Herscovitch, Gatra Priyandita

    Research output: Working paper


    Huawei and other firms backed by the Chinese government are training Indonesian tech workers, government officials and students on an industrial scale for free.1 This is good for Indonesia. The biggest blockage to Indonesias digital development is a lack of trained talent and China is filling that gap. However, this is not completely altruistic, as training has become a key plank for pushing Chinas geopolitical tech ambitions. By comparison, Australia and other Quad countries have not done as much as China to build technology skills in Indonesia.
