The Indonesian Cyber Media Association (AMSI) is set to hold on Thursday its 2019 Indonesia Digital Conference, an annual conference that this year will focus on business development and the country’s digital environment.
AMSI head Wenseslaus Maggut said the conference, slated to take place at Djakarta Theater in Central Jakarta, will serve as a platform for exchanging ideas, experiences and strategies to build a future digital ecosystem.
"Things that are impossible have been made possible in the digital era thanks to technological leaps forward and innovation. It's possible that companies that used to have competitive rivalries should now collaborate and work hand-in-hand to grow and develop their businesses, and move forward together," Wenseslaus said.
As a body that accommodates cyber media companies, he said that AMSI had been proactive in pushing for a healthy and competitive digital business ecosystem so it could create opportunities and improve people's welfare.
