Social Innovation and its Impact in Indonesia
Throughout our history, social innovations have played a central role in our technological transformation. This change is especially evident in the 4th most populous nation in the world, Indonesia.
With a population of 250 million, Indonesia is rated as an emerging middle-income country. The Indonesian economy is the 10th largest in the world and the poverty rate has been slashed by more than half to 10.9% in 2016. Despite its achievements, Indonesia still faces a barrage of social challenges. One of it lies in its cities, where urban population growth is threatening to derail its progress.
Social innovations are playing a transformational role in Indonesia by creating smart cities, resolving future energy concerns and bringing access to financial services for its residents. By working together with the Indonesian policymakers, Hitachi looks to co-create a brighter future for Indonesia.
