India has claimed itself as a country being able to adapt fast against digital technological development and moreover, it is able to create or innovate in the development of digital industry in the world. Tight competition among big countries with tremendous capital urges India to do the maneuver of business cooperation in the more sophisticated and modern sector, but it makes many parties enjoyable. As the region with a big population, ASEAN becomes the target of India, particularly Indonesia with adequate capital and direction of the government's policy towards the development of digital technology makes India as the focus of establishing digital cooperation. However, for Indonesia itself, it is not able to balance the human resources capacity. Therefore, this research tries to explain Indonesia's maneuver in digital business in ASEAN and Indonesia's anticipative measures against the maneuver.
