The Singapore Business Federation, SBF, held the webinar – Embark and Sustain Your Business Journey in Indonesia – on 26 October 2022. Opened to the public, the webinar discussed digital transformation in the education sector.

Industry 4.0 and the Covid-19 pandemic accelerated the digital transformation of Indonesia’s education sector.

The Indonesian government declares that Edtech is one of the strategic industries that will drive the country’s digital economy forward. In addition, the private sector is also making use of available business opportunities to fill the gap in Indonesia’s educational needs in this age of technological disruption.
