The Communication and Informatics Ministry and the West Manggarai district government are preparing to implement a Piloting Smart City project and a Digital Talent Scholarship program in Labuan Bajo village, West Manggarai, East Nusa Tenggara (NTT).
"Let's take advantage of the opportunity to provide effective and efficient services to the community," head of the district, Edistasius Endi, remarked here on Friday.
Endi said he and the head of the ministry’s Human Resources Research and Development Agency, Hary Budiarto, have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for the programs.
Currently, the ministry is promoting the smart city project and the scholarship program to prepare Indonesia for the 4.0 revolution, which encourages the development of smart governments that require qualified digital human resources, Endi informed.
Hence, the community and the Regional Governmental Apparatus Organization (OPD) must cooperate to support smart cities by participating in the Digital Talent Scholarship, which will be held in 2022, the district head emphasized.
He said he expected the public to not miss out on the opportunity.
Furthermore, people in the district have been ready to participate in the training, which has a quota of 20 thousand participants, he added.
Endi said he believed that the participation of the local community in the upcoming 2022 Digital Talent Scholarship will create quality digital human resources for establishing a smart city in Labuan Bajo village.
The scholarship is an intensive training program for policymakers, governmental and private institutions leaders, technical workers, and the general public, he added.
The training will aim to create effective policies on the digital technology sector, improve skills and competitiveness of the community on the technical aspects of the sector, optimize the dissemination of positive content, as well as increase basic digital literacy required to prevent the spread of negative content -- such as hoaxes, data leakage, and radicalism, he said.
