China Inc. and Indonesia's Technology Future

    Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


    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 Indonesia’s 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 China’s geopolitical tech ambitions. By comparison, Australia and other Quad countries have not done as much as China to build technology skills in Indonesia.
