The role of the Internet in Indonesia’s economic development

This report, commissioned by Google Asia Pacific Pte Ltd, explores different dimensions of how the Internet is evolving and transforming the economy and society in Indonesia.

The Internet is beginning to transform the way much of the Indonesian economy and society operate. In 2011, the Internet accounted for 1.6% of Indonesia’s gross domestic product (GDP). It is forecast to grow at a rate three times that of the overall economy and is expected to account for at least 2.5% of GDP by 2016.

Deloitte Access Economics was commissioned by Google Asia Pacific Pte Ltd to explore different dimensions of how the Internet is evolving and transforming the economy and society in Indonesia. This involves estimating the share of Indonesia’s economic output that can be directly attributed to the Internet. Taking the analysis further, to understand how the Internet is transforming households, business and government, requires identifying differences between and within these sectors.
