MSMEs account for 99% of Indonesian businesses, an engine of economic growth and opportunity. Growing the potential of these MSMEs through digitalization is a primary path to power up Indonesia’s economy and unlock greater socio-economic benefits for people and communities. In a study of MSMEs undertaken by Boston Consulting Group, Blibli, and Kompas Data, we reveal the current state of digitalization in MSMEs, attitudes to digital transformation, government support, and the potential which could be unlocked through greater digitalization of the MSME ecosystem.
