About Indonesia

Straddling the equator, situated between the continents of Asia and Australia and between the Pacific and the Indian Oceans, Indonesia has many magnificent islands waiting to be explored. In addition to its charming landscape, Indonesia today has also evolved itself into a fully democratic country with consistent commitment to further consolidate the democratic system.

Since 1998, the political reformation “Reformasi” has unleashed exponential public demand for transparency, accountability, and better government. With democratic institutions gradually expanding and the Public Information Disclosure Law having been formally enacted in 2008, openness in Indonesia has been gaining momentum in tandem with the country’s democratic consolidation. In accordance with these facts, the Government of Indonesia is convinced that openness is a basic necessity for a modern government, and a key to unlock Indonesia’s potential in the economy and public service sector, as well as driving an increase in innovation. As such, in 2011 Indonesia did not hesitate to participate in OGP, first as a co-founder and member, and then later as co-chair from 2012 – 2014.
