Southeast Asia has overtaken China as the leading mobile economy hotspot, with most of the growth happening in Indonesia, according to DCI Indonesia.
The region accounts for around 10% of the world’s total Internet users, with Indonesia reaching 175.4 million users, which is 64% of the country’s population, representing a growth of 20% or 29 million new users over the past two years.
As a result, Indonesia is expected to be one of the major three fastest-growing e-commerce countries globally along with India and Malaysia.
Meanwhile, the archipelago’s digital economy is expected to be the largest in Southeast Asia.
