The two countries are invited countries from the ASEAN region that are involved in the session. Apart from Cambodia and Singapore, invited countries that attended the fourth session of the DEWG included Spain, the Netherlands, Rwanda, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The last round of the DEWG G20 meeting started on Monday (29/8/2022) and ended on Tuesday (30/8/2022). At this meeting, the delegates discussed the draft G20 digital ministerial declaration called “The Bali Package”.

The draft declaration will be discussed again to be finalized by the G20 digital ministers at the Digital Economy Ministers Meeting (DEMM) on September 1, 2022.

Plate hopes that the DEMM meeting held tomorrow will go well so that the forum can complete all rounds of discussions that will be the material for President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) in leading the G20 Summit in mid-November.
