This initiative is a national level collaboration that is significant for both national interests and stakeholders involved. For National benefit Metaverse has the potential to boost economic growth, advance education, foster innovation, and promote Indonesian national identity in the digital world. CSPs can collaborate with the community as co-creators. Researchers and academics can take on roles in innovation. For policymakers, this can help guide policy strategies. For the private sector, metaverse can enhance customer outreach and business development. And for users, it can help shape the direction of technology adoption and promote inclusive metaverse development.


The Metaverse Indonesia Collaborative Initiative will be carried out in the form of a program called the Metaverse Research and Experience Center (MREC), a public-private partnership that aims to promote collaboration, research, innovation and development in the field of metaverse technology. It will be a multi-year program with 4 workstreams; Network Baselining, Network Optimization and Innovation, Use cases, and Ecosystem Support.

The Metaverse Research and Experience Centre (MREC) is expected to drive innovation and support the growth of the metaverse industry in Indonesia. This aligns with the national vision of President Jokowi to promote the digital economy as a crucial pillar to help Indonesia reach the top 10 global economies by 2030. Through this collaboration among industry leaders and the public sector, investment plans in Indonesia in the field of metaverse are expected to be facilitated, positioning the country as a leading hub for innovation in the digital economy.

The launch of the Indonesia Metaverse Collaboration Initiative marks an important step in lifting Indonesia from being just a consumer to a producer in the metaverse industry, and represents a significant milestone in the country's technological evolution.
