Customs obligations on digital goods, personal data protection (PDP) rules, and e-commerce policies were just some of issues discussed during AmCham’s second ICT Committee of the year on April 13, held at the Mastercard Indonesia office.
The meeting kicked off with a special presentation from Phillip Greene, USAID’s Deputy Director at the Economic Growth and Education Office, on USAID’s involvement in the new capital city Nusantara (IKN) project. Participants raised razor-sharp questions on the prospects of the megaproject, specifically the smart city aspects such as cybersecurity.
The session continued with updates on Minister of Finance Regulation (PMK) 190/PMK.04/2022 on Customs Obligations to Intangible Goods (PMK190), on which AmCham Indonesia has engaged with Anita Iskandar, Director of Customs and Excise International Cooperation. Due to the complexities of imposing customs obligations on digital goods, AmCham member companies are keen to seek more clarity on the regulation’s implementation.
Other issues discussed were the PDP law’s implementing regulations; e-commerce policies; sanctions to private electronic services operators (ESOs); and International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) applications for non-cellphone, laptop, and tablet products. Member companies shared their concerns and updates, along with strategizing future advocacy plans through ad-hoc taskforces for certain policy issues.
