Tim said that he was proud of the work that Apple had done with three Apple academies in Surabaya, Jakarta and Batam.

“The government’s vision and commitment to supporting skills development and innovation is reflected in the exceptional quality of the nearly 2,000 graduates to date. In the future, I am sure we will be able to open further successful collaborations between Indonesia and Apple,” said Tim.
