Microsoft will “invest US$1.7 billion over the next four years in new cloud and AI infrastructure in Indonesia, as well as AI skilling opportunities for 840,000 people, and support for the nation’s growing developer community,” the company says.

Indonesia’s Communications and Information Minister Budi Arie Setiadi says that Microsoft’s investment is critical to Indonesia’s digital development.

“This is a breath of fresh air for everyone, as a country and as a society, because Indonesia is being taken into account in the global digital ecosystem.”

The minister adds that AI technology would foster Indonesia’s economic development in various sectors, including farming and fisheries.

According to the plans, a research development center will be built in Bali or Indonesia’s new capital city Nusantara currently under construction.

According to Microsoft, Indonesia currently leads Southeast Asia in the projected contribution of AI to national GDP by 2030.
