Indonesia 2030: New Economy and The New Generation
Creating Social Impact Through New Businesses
Indonesia as an emerging market, the economic integration in ASEAN and rapid technological development has caused a rise in GDP per capita. These developments offer opportunities and challenges for the young generation. According to the statistics, young people are dominating the country (60% of the youth is <30) and they are, generally seen, healthier, better educated, more urbanized, have better access to knowledge and are more connected with the rest of the world.
At the same time social and economic development are developing differently if we compare urban and rural areas in Indonesia. Educational and career opportunities differ and so do socioeconomic (and environmental) challenges. While experts are calling for an inclusive and sustainable growth, the young come up with disruptive solutions. New start-ups challenge the status quo of the country and its economic and social system. Start-ups create solutions for LOCAL urban and rural challenges.
What will this mean for the future of Indonesia? How to create sustainble growth in a country where urbanization and motorization is a big issue?
Through lectures we will explore the above mentioned.
