USTDA Advances Smart City Solutions for Indonesia’s New Capital

Arlington, VA – Next week, the U.S. Trade and Development Agency will host a delegation of senior Indonesian officials and decision-makers to support the deployment of smart-city technology in Nusantara, Indonesia’s new capital city now under development to replace Jakarta as the country’s administrative center.

Led by the Nusantara Capital Authority, the delegation includes 18 government representatives involved in the planning, financing, and implementation of Nusantara. The delegation will travel to New York, Houston, Austin and Los Angeles from April 22-May 2 to learn about U.S. smart city technologies, develop business connections, and explore financing and investment opportunities for the new capital. The group will also meet with municipal officials, tour command centers, view technology demonstrations, and gain insight on smart infrastructure applications and approaches from cities in the United States.

The Government of Indonesia has prioritized the deployment of digital technology to increase sustainability, optimize the use of public resources, and improve quality of life for residents. U.S. companies are at the forefront of delivering innovative solutions that can meet these goals. This mission is the latest in a suite of USTDA programming designed to support Indonesia’s efforts to build a world-class new capital city with focus on environmental and economic sustainability, procurement best practices, and cutting-edge technology for successful implementation.

USTDA will host business briefing events in New York City on April 24 and Los Angeles on May 2 for U.S. technology providers, financiers and investors to network with the delegation and hear firsthand about the status of the new capital development, upcoming procurements, and investment opportunities.
