"We believe that the DIN event is an important catalyst for the growth of the digital economy by strengthening collaboration among start-ups, venture capital companies, as well as national and international corporations," the minister said in his opening remarks at the inauguration of G20 DIN, a High-level Side Event of the 2022 G20 Digital Economy Working Group (DEWG), in Nusa Dua, Bali.

Before the G20 ministers and international organization representatives present, Plate noted the development of the digital economy in Indonesia shows a positive trend. "In 2021, the value of the digital economy in Indonesia reached US$70 billion and it will increase to US$315,5 billion in 2030. This potential is Indonesia's future economy (strength) which is supported by various well-performed start-ups," he said.

Plate said that currently, Indonesia has two decacorn start-ups, or companies whose valuations have reached US$10 billion, and more than 10 unicorn start-ups, which have valuations of at least US$1 billion. Plate believes that start-ups play an important role in determining the development of the digital economy sector, both at the domestic and regional levels.

"I trust the G20 DIN (organizing committee) to carry out this series of meetings and discussions which are expected to encourage various collaborations on digital innovations," Plate stated.

The G20 DIN meeting was held in the Bali International Convention Centre (BICC) in Badung District from September 2 to 4, 2022. More than 400 participants attended the event in person, while another 200 participated in the event virtually.
