Jakarta (ANTARA) - The National Development Planning (PPN) Ministry and National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas) hosted the 2022 One Data Indonesia (SDI) steering board meeting to improve government strategies and programs in 2022.

The meeting was led by National Development Planning Minister and Bappenas head Suharso Monoarfa.

"This meeting is to implement President Jokowi's (Joko Widodo’s) directive to consolidate the implementation of SDI,” he said.

The meeting also discussed the application of One Data Indonesia for socioeconomic registration, and its use to avoid the overlapping or duplication of data of central and regional agencies, he informed.

“(The meeting was also held) to monitor and evaluate SDI on a quarterly basis, to support the provision of National Data Centers (PDNs) and the government service connecting system (SPLP) to share data," Monoarfa explained.

According to the minister, SDI, once functional, will align with the framework of the electronic-based government system.

Furthermore, the meeting agreed on important points, including budget efficiency through the clearance process in data collection activities.

"What can be simplified in the fiscal year 2022? What can be done for the preparation of the fiscal year 2023? We must discipline it when it comes to budgeting, such as matters related to (SDI's) application, interoperability, and simplification," Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati, who was present at the meeting, said.

Designed as a strategy to realize the advanced Indonesia vision by 2045, SDI is directed at supporting the national digital transformation by increasing data literacy, digital talent, and utilizing the national information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure through national data centers.

Meanwhile, head of Statistics Indonesia (BPS), Margo Yuwono, said that BPS fully supports endeavors to synchronize and harmonize the implementation of SDI based on the President's directive, for instance, through social protection system reform supported by collecting socioeconomic data.
