CEO of TikTok at TikTok Southeast Asia Impact Forum 2023
Jakarta, Indonesia – A big surprise is coming for Indonesia in the digital industry! On Thursday (15/6), CEO of TikTok, Shou Zi Chew, arrived in the country to attend the TikTok Southeast Asia Impact Forum 2023 event held in Jakarta. However, there’s more to it – it is rumored that Shou Zi Chew will be announcing an investment plan of up to 149 trillion Rupiah for Indonesia!
TikTok, the social media platform that has tirelessly entertained and inspired millions of its users, has recorded a tremendous surge in popularity in Indonesia. With over 150 million users, Indonesia is ranked as TikTok’s second largest market after the United States. This success is also reflected in the growth of the TikTok team in Indonesia, which has rapidly expanded from hundreds of employees to 2,000 today. This figure is in line with TikTok’s total employee base in Southeast Asia of 8,000.
In this context, TikTok decided to make a monumental investment in Southeast Asia, with Indonesia being the main destination. This Rp149 trillion investment plan is not only the largest among countries in the region, but also marks TikTok’s serious commitment to support the creative and technology ecosystem in Indonesia.
The impact of TikTok’s investment will extend to various sectors. One of them is the creative industry, where local content creators will get greater opportunities to express their talents and gain international recognition. In addition, the technology sector will also experience a significant boost, with increased research, development, and innovation that will accelerate digital transformation in Indonesia.
Of course, the arrival of investments of this magnitude also brings new expectations and challenges. In this regard, the Indonesian government needs to ensure that the right framework is in place to facilitate investment and keep user data safe. Clear regulations and transparency will be key in ensuring the sustainability and long-term benefits of this investment.
