Why Bandung could be Indonesia's Silicon Valley

In Indonesia, the mayor of Bandung is driving a grand vision for his city. His aim of turning it into a tech capital has led to heavy investments in technology and creative industries. Some pet projects include building a Star-Trek inspired command centre and free public wi-fi across the city.

Bandung is now home to Indonesia's biggest tech university and it is estimated to be Twitter's sixth largest user base, globally.
