RS Mata Indonesia Dapat Pengakuan Dunia
Selasa, 30 Maret 2010



Jakarta Eye Center
Patient Education Center, salah satu inovasi di Jakarta Eye Center.



JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com - Kualitas layanan rumah sakit mata Indonesia kini telah mendapat pengakuan dunia menyusul masuknya Jakarta Eye Center (JEC) sebagai anggota resmi World Association of Eye Hospitals (WAEH). Pengakuan ini menempatkan JEC sebagai rumah sakit mata pertama yang mewakili Indonesia dalam asosiasi beranggotakan 11 rumah sakit mata dari berbagai penjuru dunia itu.

Seperti yang diungkap dalam siaran pers kepada Kompas.com, Selasa (30/3/2010), peresmian JEC sebagai anggota WAEH dilaksanakan bersamaan dengan kunjungan delegasi WAEH ke Jakarta pada awal Maret ini. Kedatangan delegasi WAEH merupakan rangkaian dari pertemuan tahunan yang diadakan di dua kota di dua negara, yaitu Melbourne dan Jakarta.

Pertemuan tahunan WAEH pada tahun 2010 ini mengambil topik “Challenges of Innovation in Eye Care” di mana ada 3 fokus inovasi yang dibicarakan, yaitu: Inovasi pelayanan kesehatan, pengetahuan dan organisasi.

Selama satu minggu penuh di dua negara, rumah sakit-rumah sakit mata anggota WAEH saling bertukar pikiran mengenai best practice di masing-masing rumah sakit dengan tujuan untuk saling memberikan inspirasi dalam meningkatkan pelayanan terhadap pasien.

Mr. Kees Sol selaku Komisaris dari WAEH menegaskan, “Organisasi WAEH dibentuk untuk membantu organisasi kesehatan dunia, WHO, yang menargetkan untuk mengurangi jumlah kebutaan di dunia sebesar 50 persen pada tahun 2020. Dengan kolaborasi antar anggota WAEH diharapkan pemberantasan kebutaan di dunia dapat dilakukan secara lebih tepat sasaran, efektif serta efisien“.

Hal yang paling membanggakan Indonesia adalah pada saat WAEH memberikan pengakuan bahwa inovasi pada pelayanan kesehatan di Jakarta Eye Center patut menjadi proyek percontohan untuk rumah sakit mata lainnya di dunia.

Inovasi tersebut adalah ruang edukasi pasien atau yang biasa disebut Patient Education Center, dimana tersedia fasilitas audio maupun video bagi pasien yang ingin mendapat informasi lebih jauh mengenai penyakit maupun tindakan yang akan dijalaninya. Ide Patient Education Center ini pun dikembangkan menjadi konsep ICD atau Internal Customer Discussion, dimana waktu tunggu pasien di ruang tunggu diisi dengan penerangan secara interaktif oleh staff yang berpengalaman.

Tak berhenti disitu saja, Patient Education Center pun kini bisa diakses melalui fasilitas online chatting baik dengan staff berpengalaman maupun dengan dokter pada jam-jam tertentu dengan topik yang sudah terjadwal.

Kunjungan anggota WAEH kali ini di Jakarta juga dibarengi pertemuan ASEAN Association of Eye Hospitals (AAEH) yang seluruh anggotanya merupakan anggota WAEH. Salah satu keputusan penting yang dibuat dalam rapat ini adalah bahwa asosiasi regional rumah sakit seperti AAEH sudah seharusnya berada dalam naungan organisasi global yaitu WAEH.

Resminya Jakarta Eye Center diangkat menjadi anggota WAEH juga turut disaksikan oleh ketua PERDAMI Jaya (Perhimpunan Dokter Spesialis Mata Indonesia) Dr.Tjahjono D. Gondhowiardjo, SpM, PhD. Acara WAEH di Jakarta ini juga dihadiri oleh delegasi rumah sakit-rumah sakit mata di Indonesia seperti RS AINI, RS Cicendo, Solo Eye Center, JEC Banjarmasin RS Sari Mulia dan RS Mata Dr. YAP.

WAEH adalah jejaring yang menghubungkan rumah sakit-rumah sakit mata di dunia. Semua anggota dari WAEH adalah ”Center of Excellence” atau Rumah Sakit Mata Unggulan di dunia layanan kesehatan mata. Saat ini WAEH telah memiliki beberapa anggota tetap di antaranya The Rotterdam Eye Hospital, St. Erik Eye Hospital Stockholm, Rutnin Eye Hospital Bangkok, Moorfields Eye Hospital (London), Singapore National Eye Center, The Department of Ophthalmology of the University Hospital Leuven (Belgia), Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital (Melbourne). Beberapa anggota baru di antaranya adalah Jakarta Eye Center, RVEEH (Dublin), Himalaya Eye Center dan Mechi Eye Center (Nepal).

Yes, RI needs to play a global role, but how, and when?

Yasmi Adriansyah , Geneva | Wed, 03/31/2010 10:12 AM | Opinion

Challenges, or perhaps demands, that Indonesia should play a more active role in the global scene have been increasingly heard lately. To such demands, it is most probably that many Indonesians have high expectation to see their country to be in the significant place of world arena. Even the ordinary person on the street would be proud if this status could be achieved.

Thus, the question is not on whether Indonesia should play a more active global role, but how, and when?

A methodology worth considering in answering these compelling questions is perhaps “foresighting”. By definition, foresighting is aimed at investigating how institutions identify, anticipate and manage disruptions and prepare for an uncertain future (Rohrbeck and Gemunden, 2008).

If the foresighting method is applied, at the first stage it must be simulated that in the future, let’s say in 2020, Indonesia would already be one of the significant or dominant players in global political-economic arena.

If we derive this exercise from the current context, let us first assume that the significant global players in 2020 would be the United States (US), the European Union (EU), the United Kingdom (UK), Japan and emerging economies including China, India, Brazil, Russia and South Africa.

One simple question is, what makes these countries the most likely candidates? Is it their political stature? Probably not. If one of the indicators of global political power is a role in a prominent global political body such as the UN Security Council, it would be only the US, UK, Russia, France and China.

If the indicator is a role in mediating the decades-long Israeli-Palestinian conflict, it would be only the US, EU and Russia. What about Japan, India, Brazil and South Africa? Are they among either of these categories? I am afraid the answer is still no.

Based on the above notions, the most possible reason why countries could become the dominant powers of 2020 is their economic power. The US, EU, UK and Japan undoubtedly have been powerful economies in recent decades, and most possibly will remain at that stage in decades to come.

China, India, Brazil, Russia and South Africa have been increasingly recognized as the most promising new economic powers. Terms such as BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) and IBSA (India, Brazil and South Africa) have frequently emerged in the press in recent years, acknowledging the economic potential these countries possess.

China has often been voiced as the most likely challenger to the US as the next global super power (if the US economy cannot be managed appropriately).

Based on that logic, it can be argued that the most challenging factor in Indonesia’s aim to become a significant player is how to maximize its relevant strengths in gaining economic power. The next question is how to measure Indonesia’s economic power?

A simple indicator as to whether Indonesia has gained economic power is its GDP purchasing power parity (PPP) and per capita income. With its current PPP of US$968.5 billion, Indonesia is ranked 16th in the world (according to the CIA The World Factbook, 2009). Not bad. But, Indonesia’s per capita income is around $4,000, which ranks 155th. Based on that figure, it is hard to say Indonesia has economic power.

In short, Indonesia should really work hard to achieve economic power if it wishes to gain a dominant position in the global arena. It would be difficult to imagine that Indonesia could exert all its power if at the same time a number of its people were still suffering, for example, from malnutrition.

Put simply, the elementary and secondary needs of the people at home should be met first before assisting other people around the world. This is merely a matter of prioritization.

If we have agreed that the economy is the most important factor, the next question is what kind of economic power does Indonesia want to achieve? In this regard, I fully share the views of several scholars that what Indonesia needs is not merely economic growth, but welfare. Indonesia’s economic growth can perhaps be materialized or has even been achieved in recent years. Nonetheless, history shows that inequality often comes hand in hand with economic growth.

Economic welfare shall indeed be pursued since, in theory, it covers the majority of the population and does not merely target the capital holders or middle class. Economic welfare is also seen as being able to manage the main challenges such as public healthcare, education and employment.

To conclude, if Indonesia could refocus its vision and strategies and work on how to achieve economic welfare, it would likely become a global economic power in due course. And once this has been achieved, even without declaring itself a dominant player in the global political-economic arena, it would be difficult to deny that Indonesia deserves to be there by 2020.

Situation Room nan Canggih di Binagraha
Pemerintah menyiapkan sistem pendukung pembuatan keputusan

Ada pemandangan tak biasa di Kantor Wakil Presiden, Selasa 30 Maret 2010. Di Istana II yang biasa menjadi arena Rapat Kabinet, sedang ada rapat penting. Namun kali ini bukan para menteri yang sedang duduk mengelilingi meja, melainkan para Sekretaris Menteri Koordinator, Sekretaris Jenderal Kementerian, dan Sekretaris Utama berbagai Lembaga Negara. Total, ada 48 undangan yang hadir. "Memang baru pertama kali ini saya mengundang para Sekretaris," tutur Wakil Presiden (Wapres) Boediono.

Tentu saja, Wapres punya maksud khusus mengapa kali ini yang duduk di sana adalah para Sekretaris Jenderal dan Sekretaris Utama, alih-alih para menteri. Agenda rapat itu membahas sebuah sistem informasi baru yang akan mendukung pembuatan keputusan pemerintahan oleh Presiden RI. "Kita membangun sebuah Situation Room dengan dukungan Decision Support System (DSS) yang canggih," kata Kepala Unit Kerja Presiden untuk Pengawasan dan Pengendalian Pembangunan (UKP4) Kuntoro Mangkusubroto.

Sebagai pengendali operasional sehari-hari di Kementerian dan Lembaga, peran Sekretaris Jenderal dan Sekretaris Utama amatlah krusial untuk mendukung sistem itu. Sebab, ibarat tubuh manusia, DSS di Binagraha adalah pusat saraf, sedangkan ujung-ujung urat saraf yang membawa data ke pusat berada di seluruh Kementerian dan Lembaga. Artinya, jika tidak berisi data, sistem itu tentu saja tak optimal manfaatnya. Di sinilah para Sekretaris Jenderal dan Sekretaris Utama punya peran penting sebagai pemasok data.

"Ini ide Presiden sejak masa kampanye. Sistem ini harus kita wujudkan agar kita membuat keputusan terbaik berdasarkan informasi yang lengkap," kata Wapres Boediono. Agar sistem ini berjalan optimal, maka seluruh Kementerian dan Lembaga harus mengisinya dengan data yang sekarang tercerai-berai. "Jika data itu disatukan, maka nilainya akan berlipat ganda karena bisa diakses pada saat yang diperlukan. Ini landasan penting untuk mempertajam keputusan," Wapres menambahkan.

Situation Room di Binagraha sebetulnya bukan kali ini saja menjadi jantung pemerintahan. Pada masa Soeharto, kita semua tahu, Binagraha adalah Kantor Presiden sehari-hari. Namun setelah Soeharto turun, Binagraha tidak lagi menjadi titik pusat pembuatan keputusan.

Sejak 2007, pelan-pelan Situation Room ini mulai direnovasi dan akhirnya selesai pada 2009. Di bawah kepemimpinan Kuntoro, UKP4 kemudian berinisiatif membangunnya menjadi Situation Room modern yang benar-benar mampu memenuhi kebutuhan untuk mengelola negara sebesar dan sekompleks Indonesia. Dalam membangun sistem ini, UKP4 mendapat bantuan dari Lembaga Sandi Negara mengingat data yang masuk ke sistem adalah data sensitif untuk membantu pemimpin pemerintahan yang tertinggi membuat keputusan.

Dalam briefing-nya, Kuntoro lantas menjelaskan bahwa UKP4 membagi pengisian data ini menjadi dua tahap. Tahap pertama, selama April, seluruh Kementerian dan Lembaga harus memasukkan semua statistik dasar yang mereka miliki. Pada tahap kedua, Mei-Agustus, sudah berlangsung agregasi sektoral dan juga pelibatan daerah. Sesuai namanya, pada tahap ini data lintas sektoral mulai disatukan ke dalam sistem dan demikian pula halnya dengan data dari Pemerintah Daerah. Pada tahap ini, semua data proyek fisik juga harus lengkap dengan posisi koordinatnya. Statistik yang masuk juga sudah harus menjangkau data hingga tingkat kecamatan. Terakhir, September 2010, DSS akan sudah beroperasi secara penuh dengan data yang lengkap.

Sebagai langkah konkret, UKP4 juga akan memakai DSS untuk memantau kemajuan pelaksanaan Instruksi Presiden (Inpres) No 1-2010 yang memerintahkan percepatan pelaksanaan program-program prioritas. Sistem monitoringnya akan sangat detail sehingga secara seketika atau real time Presiden mampu memantau perkembangan terakhir pelaksanaan 155 rencana aksi yang termaktub di dalam Inpres No 1-2010 itu. "Semua kemajuan pekerjaan bapak-Bapak dan Ibu-Ibu akan langsung terlihat di monitor Presiden," kata Kuntoro.

Fitur yang ada dalam sistem ini memang menarik. Selain data yang lengkap, penggunanya bisa menikmati display visual yang sangat bagus dan mudah dipahami. Termasuk pula di dalamnya peta-peta berdasarkan foto satelit. Itu sebabnya, semua data proyek fisik harus lengkap dengan posisi koordinatnya.

Wapres Boediono yakin, sistem baru ini akan membuat kualitas pemerintah menjadi jauh lebih baik. "Jika kita mampu menyatukan data, ini adalah sebuah langkah yang sangat signifikan," katanya.

'Sulap' Bina Graha, Pemerintah Siapkan Rp 8 M
Pemerintah pinjam peta google dari Google Earth untuk lengkapi fasilitas Bina Graha.
Selasa, 30 Maret 2010, 17:23 WIB

VIVAnews - Pemerintah sedang mempersiapkan Bina Graha sebagai Pusat Pengambilan Keputusan Presiden (Decision Supporting System). Berbagai peralatan dan fasilitas pun akan disiapkan untuk mendukung kinerja Presiden

Unit Kerja Presiden bidang Pengawasan dan Pengendalian Pembangunan (UKP4) akan menjadi lembaga pengelola Bina Graha.

Berapa dana yang dibutuhkan 'menyulap' Bina Graha?

"Ah, tidak banyak, anggaran UKP4 semua. Saya kira [sekitar] Rp 8 miliar," kata Kepala UKP4, Kuntoro Mangkusubroto di Istana Wakil Presiden, 30 Maret 2010.

Berbagai peralatan dan fasilitas memang disiapkan untuk mendukung kinerja Presiden. "Ruangan konferensi video, ruangan monitor, dan ruangan analisis data. Saya kira ini inti dari Bina Graha sebagai situation room," ucap Kuntoro.

Selain itu, UKP4 juga akan membangun program pemetaan, yang dapat mengawasi pembangunan hingga pelosok.

"Sebagian kami bangun sendiri, yang namanya start map itu kita bangun sendiri," lanjut Kuntoro.

"Peta google atau google map kita ambil. Kita pinjam dari Google Earth," kata dia.

Kuntoro mengungkapkan pengoperasian pertama Bina Graha sudah dilakukan Presiden dua minggu lalu. "Tapi tentu masih ada kekurangan di sana-sini yang akan diperbaiki segera. Untuk menuju kesempurnaan, maka kita terima masukan dari Presiden dan para menteri," ucap Kuntoro.

Yudhoyono ‘Situation Room’ to Cost $1m

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono will be getting a White House-style “situation room” at a cost of around $1 million, although aides say it will not be used to appraise the head of state of ongoing global developments but rather the progress — or lack thereof — made by government ministries and their programs.

Kuntoro Mangkusubroto, head of the Presidential Working Unit for Development Supervision and Control (UKP4), said the Rp 8 billion ($880,000) room would have a range of uses, including tracking progress on Presidential Instruction No. 1 on the acceleration of priority programs. Details were unavailable as to when the facility would be up and running.

He said advanced technology, such as video-conference equipment, would be built into the room in Bina Graha at the Presidential Palace complex, allowing him access to comprehensive information at the touch of a button.

“Bina Graha will be established as a location to gather all information from the ministries and governors for the [president] to track progress and to make important decisions,” Kuntoro said. “The room will be outfitted with video-conference facilities and monitoring and data analysis equipment.”

Yudhoyono has several times warned ministers and regional governments to better coordinate their efforts after evaluations showed that some key programs had been hindered.

Toward the end of last year, he gathered all the ministers and governors at a working meeting and complained about the lack of coordination. A similar event, which he has dubbed a “government retreat” will be conducted again in April.

Vice President Boediono said Yudhoyono had planned the situation room since last year’s legislative and presidential elections.

“The system should be established for us to come up with best decision based on complete information,” Boediono was quoted on his Web site as saying. “If the data is united, the value will be multiplied because it can be accessed whenever needed.”

Boediono spokesman Yopie Hidayat said the president was often confronted by challenges requiring fast and direct access to comprehensive data.

“For example, on the forestry issue, Forestry Ministry decisions are related to the environment and maybe also mining,” he said. “That’s why the data needs to be synchronized.”

Kuntoro gave another example of how the situation room might be utilized. “If there is a conflict in which one party claims the area is for plantations, another wants it for mining and another for forestry, we could solve the conflict using a Geographic Information System [electronic mapping].”

“GIS could also show which areas often experience blackouts.”

Kuntoro said the software was still being developed but that the situation room would use Google mapping technology until the GIS was completed.

Indonesia: The Latest Emerging Star



While many emerging markets have stalled out in 2010, digesting huge 2009 gains, Indonesia continues to ramp in quite methodical fashion. This despite a 87% gain last year.

Certainly this has been a missed opportunity, as we should have pounced last May… or July… or September… or November. I’ll admit, both times the Market Vectors Indonesia ETF (IDX) broke serious support (Nov 09, Feb 10) I hesitated as I was worried about a much larger selloff. Instead, as in the US, the market just turned around and staged a V-shaped turn.



Via Bloomberg:

1. Indonesia’s benchmark stock index, Southeast Asia’s best performing market this year, touched a record high on expectations faster economic growth and record- low interest rates will boost earnings. The Jakarta Composite index climbed as much as 2% to 2,832.16, surpassing the all-time closing high on Jan. 9, 2008.
2. The nation’s shares have climbed 12% this year and are Asia’s best performers barring Mongolia and Bangladesh, as foreign funds increased purchases after the central bank raised its growth forecast and Standard & Poor’s upgraded the nation’s sovereign debt ratings. The gauge soared 87% last year.
3. Foreign investors moved more funds to Indonesian stocks in March, buying a net 4.92 trillion rupiah ($543 million) of shares after selling 1.58 trillion rupiah in the first two months this year, according to data from the Jakarta stock exchange.
4. Indonesia is “doing better than most countries, growth is OK, they have skipped the recession, people are buying for structural reforms, they’re buying for a re-rating,” said Raymond Tang, who oversees $6.4 billion as chief investment officer at CIMB-Principal in Kuala Lumpur. “Because of the economic growth you can get the possibility of a re-rating of the market, you get a bigger bang for the buck.”
5. Indonesia’s debt rating may reach investment grade by 2012 as the country’s economic and political conditions improve, Standard Chartered Plc said in a recent report. Standard & Poor’s raised the country’s sovereign credit rating to a 12-year high of BB from BB- on March 12.
6. The Indonesian rupiah has risen 3.6% this year, the second-best-performing currency in Asia, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. A strong rupiah and low inflation have helped the central bank keep its key interest rate at a record low of 6.5% to support Southeast Asia’s biggest economy.
7. Indonesia’s central bank, which will meet on April 6 to review its policy, has kept borrowing costs unchanged since cutting them to a record low in August to help the economy avoid a recession. It has refrained from following Malaysia, India and Australia in raising interest rates this year even as inflation returns to the region amid a global recovery.
8. The central bank on March 8 raised its economic growth forecast to 5.6% from 5.2%, citing rising consumer spending.

Also from Bloomberg:

1. Indonesia will allow foreigners to buy property in the country and own bigger stakes in health-care companies as it completes a review of investment rules, the country’s investment coordination agency said.
2. Southeast Asia’s largest economy plans to deregulate its property industry by the end of the first half, allowing foreigners to buy homes and commercial real estate directly, Gita Wirjawan, chairman of the Investment Coordination Board of Indonesia, said in a forum in Singapore today. The move will “unleash value,” he said.
3. President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, who won re-election to a second term last year, has pledged to double spending on roads, seaports and airports to $140 billion over the next five years as he aims to deliver average economic growth of 6.6% over the remainder of his term ending 2014. He won the election after pledging to attract investment and generate jobs.
4. “There is a spirit of liberalization with respect to health care and hospitals, which was closed off to foreign investment in the past,” the investment agency chief said in the interview. Foreign investment in health care will be capped at 67%, versus 49% for other industries, because “there is a recognition Indonesia needs better health care facilities,” he said.
5. … expects investment to come from Indonesia’s neighbors, and the country will also target “new frontiers” including the Middle East, China and India, he said. “Those are the guys that are hungry for investments in Indonesia,” Wirjawan said. “The English, the Europeans and the Americans, those are the toughest bunch because of what they’ve gone through in the last 15 months and they see Indonesia as a basket case. It’s off their radar.”

Definitely a very interesting time in this country… the world’s 4th most populous.

Hutan di Jawa Akan Direboisasi Besar-besaran

JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com — Pemerintah menargetkan melakukan rehabilitasi hutan besar-besaran di Pulau Jawa seluas 2 juta hektar (ha). Upaya ini dilakukan agar penyediaan dan distribusi air minum makin membaik.

Demikian disampaikan Menteri Koordinator Perekonomian Hatta Rajasa di sela-sela Seminar "Sustainable Business Competitiveness, The Next Challenge" di Hotel Grand Hyatt, Jakarta, Sabtu (24/4/2010). Menurut Hatta, target ini diharapkan bisa terealisasi paling lambat 2014.

"Untuk penyediaan dan distribusi air minum makin baik, akan dilakukan reboisasi antara lain penanaman 2 juta ha di Pulau Jawa. Nanti oleh Perum Perhutani," kata Hatta.

Saat ini, di Pulau Jawa masih ada 900.000 lahan kritis. Lahan tersebut sebagian kecil berada di wilayah Perhutani dan sisanya merupakan lahan milik masyarakat. Tahun ini, Perhutani merehabilitasi 70.000 hektar lahan.

Langkah lainnya, pemerintah juga akan meningkatkan penyediaan air minum yang akan dilakukan oleh masing-masing Perusahaan Air Minum Daerah (PDAM). Selain itu, pihaknya juga bakal menggenjot perbaikan daerah aliran sungai (DAS), baik dari sisi hulu dengan penanaman kembali maupun penataan penggunaan air sepanjang sungai.

Sementara itu, Hatta meyakini, pertumbuhan ekonomi Indonesia bisa tumbuh rata-rata 6,3 atau 6,8 persen per tahun. Sebelum tahun 2014, ditargetkan pertumbuhan ekonomi bisa tumbuh 7 persen, dan pada tahun 2014 bisa tumbuh 7 atau 7,7 persen.

Untuk laju inflasi ditargetkan rata-rata bisa mencapai 4 hingga 6 persen per tahun. Tingkat pengangguran mencapai 5 hingga 6 persen pada akhir tahun 2014 dan tingkat kemiskinan bisa mencapai 8 hingga 10 persen pada akhir tahun 2014.

Bangun Keberadaban Bangsa, Program Pendidikan Karakter Disiapkan
Rabu, 28 April 2010

TEMPO Interaktif, Jakarta - Menyambut Hari Pendidikan Nasional 2 Mei nanti, Kementerian Pendidikan Nasional meluncurkan program pendidikan karakter. "Untuk membangun keberadaban bangsa," kata Sekretaris Direktur Jenderal Manajemen Pendidikan Dasar dan Menengah Bambang Indriyanto saat memberi keterangan tentang puncak Hardiknas nanti yang akan diperingati di Istana Negara di kantornya, Rabu (28/4). Puncak peringatan Hardiknas akan diadakan di Istana Negara.

Program Pendidikan Karakter yang sejatinya akan diluncurkan oleh Presiden pada saat itu dinilai sangat penting. Menurut Bambang, siswa dengan karakter yang kuat pada akhirnya akan meningkatkan mutu pendidikan nasional.

Beberapa karakter yang ingin dibangun berkaitan dengan nilai-nilai yang umum diterima secara luas oleh masyarakat, antara lain: kejujuran, disiplin, dan kebersihan. Sementara karakter yang bersifat kearifan lokal tetap diakomodasi melalui pendidikan yang spesifik di tiap daerah.

"Karakter di sini adalah yang bersifat common sense. Tentu tetap dibingkai dengan karakter yang sifatnya merupakan kearifan lokal," kata Staf Khusus Menteri Bidang Komunikasi Media, Sukemi, menambahkan.

Sukemi mengatakan, karakter tersebut bukan hal yang baru di masyarakat. Karena itu, Kemen Diknas melihat program ini sebagai kesempatan untuk merevitalisasi pendidikan karakter. "Tidak ada yang baru dengan karakter yang akan dibangun. Karena itu tahun ini kami akan melakukan revitalisasi karakter-karakter ini," ujar dia.

Menurut Sukemi, pembangunan karakter telah menjadi isu penting di berbagai Kementerian. Karena itu, Presiden akan mencanangkan program nasional pembangunan karakter bangsa. Dengan begitu, pembangunan karakter dapat dilakukan secara serempak di berbagai sektor pemerintahan.

Indonesia: The “Apple” of Emerging Markets


If Steve Jobs were asked which country in the world most resembled Apple, he might point to Indonesia. And if Jobs had to create a global brand around this much-misunderstood country, he would most likely launch it as Apple’s new “iBRIC.”

If you were to tell Jobs to ease-off the California Kool-aid, that Indonesia’s economy can’t compare in size to the likes of Brazil, Russia, India or China, he would reply that, yes, like his beloved Apple battling the goliath Microsoft, Indonesia could be perceived as “vertically challenged.” But then again, Jobs knows, like his Apple followers, that size doesn’t matter.

Jobs also knows the importance of youth, both as a market and as a source of great ideas inside his company. On that score alone, Jobs would love Indonesia. Unlike China or Russia, Indonesia’s population is not greying. More than half of Indonesians are under the age of 30, and they are becoming better educated and more affluent. They are hip, they know what’s hot and what’s not, and they have an insatiable appetite for the latest technologies and newest ideas. What’s equally important is that you are unlikely to ever catch the Indonesian government playing Chinese censorship games with Google or choking its free press with a Russian bear hug.

Although youth and hipness are closely aligned with Apple, the company would be nowhere without its built-in flexibility and ingenuity. Take Jobs’ most famous creation, the iPod. A German company developed the MP3 technology, Compaq introduced the first hard drive-based MP3 player, and Jobs went calmly back to his headquarters and told his people to reverse engineer it and then apply Apple’s design and marketing genius to create a killer product. The rest is history.

Well, Mr Jobs, if you want to find a match for your DNA that thrives on ingenuity and flexibility, come to Indonesia. For those who know the country, it is no secret that Indonesia excels at out-of-the-box thinking. It has a long history of assimilating foreign cultures and ideas, and then shaping them in a uniquely Indonesian way.

Being open to other cultures, taking foreign ideas and profiting from them is, of course, a common trait among heterogeneous societies. Indonesia is a unique and complex potpourri of over 300 ethnic groups speaking 600 indigenous languages with a rich history of Chinese, Indian, Arabic and European influences. It is a living, breathing laboratory of diversity in motion, quite the opposite of more homogenous societies where conformity is the norm, such as China.

If you are not quite convinced that Indonesia should be considered the Apple of emerging markets and hence deserving of our new iBRIC acronym, consider this: Besides its youth and ingenuity, Indonesia shares another important trait with Apple that provides it with a competitive edge — open architecture.

When you think about the potential for new and innovative business in Indonesia, the real beauty of the country lies in the fact that so much needs to be done. All that remains is for new applications to be plugged in.

As one example, take clean technologies. Because only half of the archipelago is electrified and only one-third of Indonesians have access to potable water, Indonesia is ideally suited for the deployment of scalable and widely distributed clean technologies that already exist but are searching for markets where there are no switching costs or issues with economies of scale.

Alternative energy, like Intelligent Energy’s fuel-cell powered systems, might make little sense in electrifying US suburbs, but among Indonesia’s 14,000 islands, where deployment of conventional power grids can be extraordinarily expensive, using these distributive, clean and scalable technologies would make perfect sense.

Similarly, the Indonesian state-owned water company finds it uneconomical to develop public water facilities in small and isolated regions with low-density populations, such as Papua and the Malukus. But right now in the United States there are companies with atmospheric water technologies that have the potential to provide potable water for an entire village at a fraction of the cost it would take otherwise.

But clean technologies are not the only cool and hip industries that have the potential to thrive in Indonesia.

If you have ever watched Indonesians at work in the visual and performing arts in places like Bali, Yogyakarta and Jakarta, then you will understand that the country has a tremendous reserve of creativity and artistic talent. There’s no reason for Indonesia not to have its own Baliwood for film, for more of its artists to display their works at international galleries and auction houses or for more of its fashion designers to parade their creations on international catwalks.

Eco-tourism is another hip industry that has great potential for Indonesia. Boasting the world’s largest diversity of flora and fauna, home to more than 75 percent of the world’s active volcanoes and the most pristine coral reef gardens to be found anywhere, there are endless possibilities for Indonesia to emerge as a world-class eco-tourist destination for those wanting to experience natural beauty that can’t be found on display at the local mall.

It took Jobs and Apple 33 years to establish a unique reputation and a customer base that is devoted to the company and its brand. Fortune magazine recently named Apple the most admired company in the world for a third straight year. No small feat when compared to the larger and more established goliaths. We see no reason why Indonesia cannot do the same.

Most Progressive Middle-Class Nation




ndonesia attracts attention because, lo and behold, it’s a front-runner when it comes to Asia’s expanding middle-class consumption.

People thought Indonesia was important when it exported oil, but that supply function is nothing compared to the global attraction created by this new demand function.



From WSJ story

So we are told that “booming jungle outposts” are what’s generating all the attention, leading most observers to name Indonesia as the third great coming of Asia’s new middle class, after China and India.

The look and feel is right out of the American West: booming coal town that’s tripled its population since 2000, with incomes rising rapidly. Samarinda doesn’t trip off the tongue like Deadwood, but we’re talking the same dynamics.

Packaged food spending in Indonesia–that ultimate in early indicators of a rising middle class–should outpace the growth rate in both India and China through 2011.

240m consumers, a stabilized economy, and a respected, democratically elected government that promotes global connectivity.

One very sexy package, all right.

Pajak Indonesia model organisasi negara maju
Minggu, 06/06/2010


JAKARTA (Bisnis): Indonesia masuk dalam daftar 74 negara di dunia yang telah mengimplementasikan standar pajak internasional secara substansial, dengan merujuk pada model organisasi kelompok negara maju (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development/OECD).

Laporan terbaru OECD menyebutkan Indonesia bersama Brasil merupakan dua negara baru yang masuk dalam kategori jurisdiksi yang secara substansial mengimplementasikan standar pajak internasional. Penilaian atas Indonesia diberikan pada April 2010 setelah RI bergabung dalam unit Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes OECD sejak September 2009.

Berdasarkan penilaian, Indonesia memiliki 53 perjanjian pajak bilateral yang memungkinkan pemberian pertukaran informasi yang berkaitan dengan pajak merujuk pada standar yang disepakati secara internasional. Adapun Brasil, punya lebih dari 25 perjanjian serupa.

"Kedua negara akan melakukan review atas regulasi dan praktek pertukaran informasi pajak pada 2011 dan 2012 untuk Brasil, sedangkan Indonesia pada 2011 dan 2013," tulis laporan OECD itu yang dirilis pekan lalu seperti dikutip Bisnis dari situs resminya hari ini.

Standar pajak internasional dalam model OECD mensyaratkan keterbukaan suatu negara untuk melakukan pertukaran informasi tentang pajak bila diminta oleh dunia internasional yang memiliki perjanjian dengan negara tersebut.

Standar yang diusung G-20 ini bertujuan untuk menghindari praktek pemajakan berganda atas transaksi yang lintas batas negara, penghindaran pajak berganda, penghindaran pajak (tax avoidance) dan penyelundupan pajak (tax evasion).

Sejak April 2009, lebih dari 500 perjanjian pertukaran informasi pajak telah ditandatangani di dunia. 74 negara tercatat masuk dalam peringkat yang secara substansial mengimplementasikannya menurut standar internasional.

Darussalam, pengamat pajak dari Tax Center UI, menilai manfaat bagi Indonesia mengadopsi ketentuan tentang pertukaran informasi pajak model OECD adalah untuk mencegah terjadinya penghindaran pajak atau penyelundupan yang dilakukan oleh wajib pajak melalui penyalahgunaan fasilitas yang diberikan oleh perjanjian penghindaran pajak berganda.

Penyalahgunaan dapat dicegah melalui ketentuan pertukaran informasi dengan cara Indonesia meminta informasi kepada negara yang memiliki perjanjian pajak bilateral dengan RI terkait dengan segala informasi tentang wajib pajak yang melakukan penghindaran atau penyelundupan pajak tersebut.

"Tentunya, ketentuan tentang pertukaran informasi dapat dipergunakan oleh Indonesia agar penerimaan pajaknya tidak terkikis oleh praktik penghindaran pajak atau penyelundupan pajak yang dilakukan secara internasional," terangnya kepada Bisnis.

Yang perlu dilakukan Indonesia selanjutnya, menurut dia, adalah memperkuat dalam ketentuan peraturan perundang-undangan perpajakan Tanah Air tentang General Anti Avoidance Rule (GAAR) dan Special Anti Avoidance Rule (SAAR). Tujuannya yaitu sebagai panduan dalam menangkal penghindaran pajak yang dijadikan acuan hukum baik bagi pemerintah maupun wajib pajak terkait dengan skema-skema penghindaran pajak.

Adanya GAAR dan SAAR dalam ketentuan domestik RI diyakini akan memberikan kepastian hukum yang jelas bagi wajib pajak. Wajib pajak akan tahu skema-skema mana saja yang diklasifikasikan sebagai penghindaran pajak dan skema mana saja yang tidak diklasifikasikan sebagai penghindaran pajak.

"Dengan demikian, wajib pajak dapat merencanakan transaksi bisnisnya di Indonesia dengan tingkat kepastian hukum yang jelas dan terhindar dari ketentuan yang sifatnya multiinterpretasi. Ini tentunya akan membuat iklim investasi semakin kondusif."

Reformasi Birokrasi Akan Tingkatkan Daya Saing Indonesia
Selasa, 22 Juni 2010


TEMPO Interaktif, Jakarta -Reformasi birokrasi menjadi kata kunci untuk meningkatkan kesiapan pemerintah Indonesia dalam menghadapi perdagangan bebas ASEAN-Cina. Hal tersebut diungkapkan oleh Andi Rachmianto, salah seorang peserta seminar nasional bertema "Percepatan Reformasi Birokrasi Dalam Meningkatkan Daya Saing Bangsa di Era ASEAN-China Free Trade Agreement (AC-FTA)" di Jakarta hari ini.

Menurutnya, ada beberapa alasan perlunya reformasi birokrasi. "Di antaranya adalah tingkat efisiensi, efektifitas dan produktifitas yang belum optimal dari birokrasi pemerintah," ujarnya.

Dia juga menyebut kualitas pelayanan yang belum memuaskan, kedisiplinan dan etos kerja pegawai yang masih rendah, dan tingkat transparansi serta akuntabilitas yang juga rendah.

Buruknya sistem birokrasi di Indonesia ini berdampak langsung terhadap rendahnya tingkat daya saing Indonesia di dunia maupun di tingkat regional. "Ekonomi biaya tinggi menjadikan biaya ekspor Indonesia lebih mahal dari para pesaingnya," kata dia.

Saat ini, kata dia, posisi daya saing Indonesia menurut World Economic Forum adalah ke-54 dari 130 negara di dunia. Sedangkan untuk kawasan ASEAN, Indonesia menduduki peringkat ke-5.

Indonesia Pakai Standar Laporan Keuangan Internasional pada 2012
Selasa, 22 Juni 2010


TEMPO Interaktif, Jakarta - Perusahaan akuntan publik di Indonesia bakal menerapkan Standar Internasional Pelaporan Keuangan (IFRS) pada 2012. Badan Pengawas Pasar Modal dan Lembaga keuangan sebagai regulator mengutarakan kepeduliannya terhadap implementasi standar tersebut.

"Standar akuntansi ini bisa meningkatkan kredibilitas laporan keuangan Indonesia yang juga dapat membuat citra emiten yang dapat menarik investor," kata Etty R. Wulandari, Kepala Biro Akuntansi Bapepam-LK di Jakarta, Selasa (22/6).

Saat ini perusahaan Indonesia masih menerapkan standar laporan Pernyataan Standar Akuntansi Keuangan (PSAK). "Bila sudah menyesuaikan dengan IFRS kita bisa terkoneksi dengan standar internasional. Indonesia negara anggota G-20. Perusahaannya juga harus punya kemampuan berintegrasi dengan standar keuangan dunia," ujar Wakil Ketua Asosiasi Emiten Indonesia Sandiaga Uno.

Rencananya seluruh emiten akan mengadaptasi standar IFRS pada 2012, baik Bapepam sebagai regulator, maupun AEI sebagai organisasi. "Sosialisasi sudah berjalan. AEI punya kepentingan sebagai asosiasi harus memberdayakan anggotanya supaya investor di luar negeri bisa melihat acuan yang sama kalau kita sudah beradaptasi ke IFRS," tutur Sandiaga.

"Perusahaan juga akan menikmati biaya modal yang lebih rendah, konsolidasi yang lebih mudah, dan sistem teknologi informasi yang terpadu," kata Patrick Finnegan, anggota Dewan Standar Akuntansi International (International Accounting Standards Board/IASB), dalam Seminar Nasional IFRS di Jakarta.

Rencana mengadopsi IFRS tersebut sejalan dengan gerakan global oleh sedikitnya 100 negara di dunia yang mulai mengimplementasikan IFRS dan menggunakan satu bahasa akuntansi. Bagi perusahaan Indonesia, proses penyesuaian dan transformasi menuju IFRS sangat penting dalam mengantisipasi perkembangan standar akuntansi global.

Pelatihan dan penentuan waktu yang tepat menjadi isu utama yang patut diperhatikan dalam mengaplikasikan IFRS. "Karenanya perusahaan perlu melakukan pelatihan kepada karyawan dan investor mengenai pendekatan dan standar yang baru ini," ujar Pascal Jauffret, dari lembaga akuntasi dan audit internasional Mazars.

Rencana tersebut mendapat sambutan positif dari para pelaku di sektor keuangan. "Mengingat adanya perubahan mendasar dalam konvergensi ke IFRS, perusahaan perlu panduan dalam menyelaraskan standar ini. Perlu pembicaraan bersama antara asosiasi, IAI (Ikatan Akuntan Indonesia), dan regulator," kata Endang P. Sulaksono, perwakilan dari Asosiasi Emiten Indonesia.

Globalization strategy for Indonesia


Indonesia should adopt a globalization strategy to promote exports and tap foreign finance for rapid economic growth and create employment in the labor-intensive manufacturing industry in Java. The strategy covers liberalization of the current account and capital account of the balance of payments, as well as the financial sector.

Experiences of Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Singapore and now China and India, show that closer integration of the domestic economy to global markets allows them to expand exports and to tap global financial resources and grow rapidly. The export-oriented strategy has also been successfully used to tap into skilled laborers and other global factors of production, to upgrade infrastructure and technology for development.

Experiences of these countries also show that growth strategy on developing industrial bases, rather than specializing according to comparative advantages is the fastest way to develop. Through strategic state-owned enterprises and industrial policies, China has successfully forced foreign companies to transfer technology.

Those countries started their economic development by processing our natural resources and have now become producers of high-tech products. In thirty years, China has transformed from a low income and backward communist country to become a respectable member of emerging BRIC with external reserves in the range of US$2 billion.

The export-oriented strategy consists of two broad policies. First, to correct the Dutch disease of the exchange rate and make the real effective exchange rate (REER) positive. REER is the nominal exchange rate adjusted against a basket of foreign currencies with which the country trades.

On the domestic front, positive REER makes domestic-made products have financial competitiveness in international markets. On the external front, it affects international competitiveness exports and, hence trade balance. The second policy to promote international competitiveness is to raise economic productivity through training and education as well as building institutions.

The Dutch disease happens because of the large export revenues from exports of some booming products and capital inflows have appreciated external value of the rupiah. The appreciation of the rupiah hurts other sectors of the economy as it makes prices on import cheaper and raises prices of exports in foreign currencies. The strong rupiah also provides incentives for production of low-productivity activities such as the non-traded sector of the economy.

Non-traded goods, such as the rapidly expanding shopping mall, construction, hail cuts and the public sector, are not internationally traded and their markets are where they are being produced. The competitive exchange rate management is therefore to correct this and encourage the transfer of economic resources from the low-productive non-traded sector of the economy to the high-productive traded sector.

The present deregulation policies with unclear objectives have allowed us exploit comparative advantages of our economy as a producer of raw materials such as nickel, coal and other minerals and agriculture products such as palm oil and cocoa. The boom in these commodity markets was partly due to the rapid economic growth in China and India.

On the other hand, we are now more depending on imported food, fruits and manufactured consumer goods that are mainly produced by farmers and manufacturers on the populous island of Java that cannot compete with imports. All the way from our high-end shopping malls in Jakarta down to outlet shops in Bandung and traditional markets in remote villages are selling Chinese-made manufactured products and imported fruits from all over.

Liberalization in the capital account of the balance of payments and the financial sector since the crisis in 1997 have increased participation from foreigners in large plantations., the mining sector, as well as in our service industry such as banks and telecommunications. The role of foreign capital is also on the rise in our narrow and shallow bond and capital markets.

The appreciation of the rupiah has also contributed to regional imbalances between the most populous island of Java and outer islands. This is because most of the booming primary products are produced off Java.

On the other hand, most of the economic sector hurt by the appreciation of the rupiah, such as food, agriculture and horticulture, and labor intensive manufacturing products, are being produced on Java.

Promoting structural transformation from low productivity of the non-traded sector of the economy to high-productivity of tradables also requires building social institutions. This includes protection of property rights, enforcement of contract, correction of market failures and externalities, the elimination of red tape and corruption, and improvements in the investment climate and the cost of doing business.

For the foreseeable future, Indonesia still needs short-term and long-term foreign capital to finance budget deficits and to satisfy other financing needs. Because of this reliance on foreign capital, policy makers should be aware of the impact of short-term capital flow on the exchange-rate movements and external reserves.

To mobilize domestic savings and enable the domestic market to absorb more government and private sector bonds, Indonesia should reestablish the Postal Saving Bank that had been destroyed by the past high inflation and regional conflicts. In addition, other long-term financial institutions such as pension funds and insurance should also be promoted.

Indonesia proof that democracy, Islam can co-exist: minister


KRAKOW, Poland — Indonesia has moved from an authoritarian state to one of the world's largest democracies, proving Islam and democracy can co-exist, the foreign minister of the world's largest Muslim country said Saturday.

At the 10th meeting of the Community of Democracies, held in Krakow, southern Poland, Indonesian Foreign Minister Raden Muliana Natalegawa said his country "represents the embodiment that democracy, Islam and modernity can go hand in hand."

More than 10 years after the fall of the Suharto dictatorship, the Asian nation has transformed into the world's third largest democracy and is today proof that "democracy and Islam can go hand in hand," he added at a global meeting on democracy, also attended by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Although Indonesia two years ago launched the Bali Democracy Forum, to promote cooperation in the field of democracy and political development among Asian countries, the vast archipelago was attending the global Community of Democracies meeting for the first time.

The island nation has had four presidents since Suharto resigned as leader in May 1998 amid mass street protests and the Asian financial crisis, but only current leader Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono was directly elected.

The economy is among the largest in Southeast Asia, and with China and India, Indonesia was one of just three G20 members to post economic growth at the height of the global economic crisis in 2009.

But critics say human rights abuses and corruption remain rampant in the post-Suharto era.

Suharto died two years ago without facing justice over billions of dollars he allegedly stole from government coffers, while victims of the many human rights abuses under his rule are still seeking recognition.

Some 80 percent of the population of some 243 million Indonesians are Muslim and around one in five Indonesians lived below the poverty line in 2006.

Kalahkan 475 Pesaing, Vocalista Angels Juarai Festival Paduan Suara Anak Dunia


Jakarta - Lagu Indonesia Raya berkumandang di gedung China Convention and Exhibition Centre, Shaoxing, Senin (19/7/2010), mengiringi kemenangan paduan suara anak Vocalista Angels. Kemeriahan tampak memenuhi ruangan menyambut perolehan medali emas kontestan asal Indonesia tersebut di ajang festival paduan suara anak tingkat dunia itu.

Demikianlah suasana yang digambarkan oleh CA Tersierra Rosa, pemimpin rombongan Vocalista Angels, kelompok paduan suara anak asal Klaten, Jawa Tengah (Jateng), yang menjadi wakil Indonesia di festival internasional itu. Vocalista Angels merebut juara untuk kategori folklore dengan koreografi.

"Selain menjuarai dan meraih medali emas kategori folklore dengan koregrafi, mereka juga memperoleh medali emas untuk kategori paduan suara Anak-anak," ujar Tersierra Rosa atau yang akrab dipanggil Thea dalam rilis yang diterima detikcom, Selasa (20/7/2010).

Menurut Thea, pada kejuaraan kali ini, Vocalista Angels mengusung beberapa lagu daerah seperti "Montor-montor Cilik", "Romo Ono Maling," "Go Jago," dan lagu "Toki Tifa" dari Maluku. Selain itu, paduan suara yang berisi 27 anak-anak dari usai 8-18 tahun ini juga membawakan lagu-lagu asing yaitu "Las Ammarilas" dari Spanyol dan "Tola" dari Africa.

"VA yang dimotori oleh konduktor Yason Christy Pranowo tampil sangat memikat sehingga mendapatkan tepuk tangan yang sangat riuh di setiap penampilannya, bahkan standing applaus," ungkap Thea sambil menambahkan prestasi Vocalista Angels juga menjadikan Indonesia sebagai juara umum kedua di pentas paduan suara dunia ke-6 ini.

Didatangi Polisi


Vocalista Angels dilepas keberangkatannya oleh Wakil Presiden (Wapres) Boediono pada 12 Juli dan tiba di Shaoxing pada 13 Juli. Sesampainya di Shaoxing, anak-anak yang berasal dari keluarga menengah ke bawah itu langsung berlatih kembali sebelum festival dimulai.

Latihan dilakukan dengan cara menghibur masyarakat di sekitar taman Kota di dekat hotel mereka menginap. Paling sedikit mereka melakukan latihan 2 jam di taman atau pun tempat terbuka yang kadang-kadang didatangi Polisi setempat karena membuat keramaian di tempat umum.

"Meski akhirnya polisi ikut menikmati sajian nyanyian mereka. Ini disebabkan sulitnya untuk mendapatkan tempat latihan yang memadai," tutur Thea.

Kemenangan kelompok paduan suara Vocalista Angels juga sempat disertai dengan beberapa kendala. Misalnya, saat melakukan registrasi, nama Vocalista Angels tidak ada di dalam daftar panitia, sehingga official harus menghubungi penyelenggara yaitu Interkultur dan penyelenggara lokal.

"Namun patut diacungi jempol kepada pemerintah Cina yang bersungguh-sungguh mempersiapkan Kejauaran Dunia Paduan suara yang ke-6 ini karena bertepatan dengan ulang tahun ke-2500 tahun kota air Shaoxing," puji Thea.

Peringkat ke-41 Dunia

Sebelumnya, Vocalista Angels telah menjuarai berbagai kejuaraan paduan suara tingkat international antara lain pada World Choir Championship di Korea Selatan tahun 2009. Saat itu 2 medali emas berhasil disabet untuk kategori Anak-anak dan Folklore.

Untuk kategori paduan suara anak, sejak 2008 Vocalista Angels menempati urutan 17 dunia. Adapun untuk tingkat dunia, Indonesia berada pada urutan yang cukup bergengsi, yakni peringkat 41 dalam semua jenjang usia dan semua Jenis yang dilombakan (children choir, Youth choir, Chamber choir, Male Choir, Female choir, Mix choir, Jazz, Spiritual, dan Folklore).

Kini, lanjut Thea, kelompok paduan suara yang dipimpinnya akan berlatih untuk kejuaraan dunia paduan suara anak ke-7. "Ada dukungan dari pemda atau tidak, Vocalista Angels tetap berlatih untuk mempersiapkan Kejuaraan Dunia ke-7 di Ohio, Amerika Serikat," cetusnya.

QUOTE=Don KingKong;57271267]To make money, go Indonesia



There is a kind of theory which says a country's destiny can be read from the countenance of its head of state or government.

President Hu Jintao's auspicious look reflects China's continued prosperity; Barack Obama's bony cheeks signify the tortuous path America's economy takes; Gordon Brown's weathered look indicates that Britain is heading downhill, while Nicolas Sarkozy's sophistry is the manifestation of France's dwindling significance in this world.

I took special note of Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono when visited Kuala Lumpur lately.

Susilo sports a well built figure, a broad face with a straight nose, an energetic look that hardly reminds us any of the countless Indonesian workers walking around our streets.

When he stepped out of the aircraft, his eyes were fixed to the far front. He walked in steady gaits with his head lifted up, fully confident of himself and his country.

He, too, did not resemble his predecessors in whatever way.

Such a posture reflected the destiny of Indonesia.

It appeared to me that it was no easy task if we tried to take advantage of him, who came to KL to talk about bilateral issues.

Forget about RM350 monthly pay, Indon maids have to work 365 days a year.

Forget about getting locked in a tussle with our neighbour over the sovereignty of some unknown islet.

Susilo is no Habibie nor Megawati, and Indonesia is no longer the Indonesia we used to know.

A US military school graduate, Susilo is resting on a powerful support base in his country, which is the Big Brother in ASEAN, a G20 member, and an emerging BRIIC powerhouse.

The 1997 regional financial meltdown, the 1998 riot, 2002 Bali bombing, 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami made many think that Indonesia had gone to the dogs.

But having experienced the damned fate, this country is staging a decisive comeback.

Susilo has drafted a series of major strategies upon taking office as the vast archipelago's president: To liberate the country's immense economic potentials, to batter corruption and beef up national security.

While these objectives are simple, few have achieved them.

He has shown the results, especially in lifting the Indonesian economy.

A friend in oil palm industry told me Indonesia had long overtaken Malaysia as the world's top palm oil exporter. If we were thinking of making big money from the industry, Indonesia was where we should head to.

A friend from IT industry told me customers at Jakarta's electronic stores demanded nothing but the latest computer and handphone models, whatever the prices.

Malaysia is no longer the prime regional market for automobiles. Automakers from around the world have zeroed in their focus on setting up plants in Indonesia, which boasts massive potentials, for both domestic consumption or export.

Thanks to the regional crisis, Indonesia was on the brink of bankruptcy during the final says of Suharto. They took the loans from IMF, and became the laughing stock of our Dr Mahathir.

Today, Indonesia has settled all its debts with IMF, and its economy has emerged healthier hence. Malaysia, which swore not to kowtow to IMF, is still struggling with the restructuring of its economic structure and a sluggish growth, with its debt ratio far outpacing the giant neighbour.

Notably, Indonesia's racial reconciliation, along with its equitable policies has not only liberated its vast economic potentials, but also energised the society.

Habis Ariel, Terbitlah "Sapu Angin"

Habis Ariel, Terbitlah "Sapu Angin"

Oleh Edy M Ya'kub

Tersebarnya kasus video asusila dari penyanyi idola anak muda, Ariel Peterpan, sungguh merontokkan citra anak muda Indonesia.

Betapa tidak, kasus memalukan itu sempat disorot dunia karena menjadi perbincangan dalam arena Piala Dunia di Afrika Selatan pada 11 Juni-11 Juli 2010.

Tidak hanya itu, kunjungan anggota DPR ke Australia juga sempat diledek parlemen setempat dengan kasus tampilan seronok dari Ariel Peterpan, Luna Maya, dan Cut Tari.

Bahkan, media massa di Inggris pun tak mau ketinggalan memuat pemberitaan tentang ulah ketiga pesohor asal Indonesia yang penduduknya mayoritas Muslim itu.

Dalam beritanya, Daily Mail Inggris menulis penyanyi pop yang membuat video porno bila terbukti bersalah bisa dikenai sanksi 12 tahun penjara karena melanggar undang-undang pornografi.

Selain itu, Ariel bersama pacarnya, Luna Maya (26), bisa kehilangan pekerjaan mereka sebagai model sabun merek tertentu di Indonesia serta Cut Tari (32), yang sudah menikah, bisa dituntut hukuman selama sembilan bulan penjara untuk perzinahan apabila terbukti bersalah.

Agaknya, citra anak muda Indonesia tak sepenuhnya hancur oleh hiruk-pikuk teknologi informasi seperti yang dicontohkan Ariel dkk secara memalukan itu.

Buktinya, tim mahasiswa dari Jurusan Teknik Mesin Fakultas Teknologi Industri ITS Surabaya mampu menyabet juara lomba mobil hemat energi se-Asia di Malaysia, Sabtu (10/7/2010), untuk kategori mobil perkotaan.

"Kalau dibandingkan dengan negara lain, ternyata bangsa kita tidak kalah dengan bangsa-bangsa di Asia," kata pengemudi mobil "Sapu Angin 2", Alfian Hudan Nuzula, kepada Antara di Surabaya, Rabu (14/7/2010).

Didampingi sembilan rekannya, mahasiswa semester 11 di Fakultas Teknologi Industri ITS itu mengaku, kemenangan tim ITS itu bukan hanya kemenangan ITS, tetapi kemenangan bangsa Indonesia atas 10 negara lain peserta lomba itu.

"Hal itu menunjukkan bangsa Indonesia sebenarnya tidak kalah dari bangsa lain dalam hal teknologi, termasuk teknologi otomotif. Karena itu, pengembangannya tergantung kepada pemerintah," katanya.

Bikin sendiri

Ungkapan Alfian yang alumnus SMA Muhammadiyah 2 Surabaya itu dibenarkan Ketua Jurusan (Kajur) Teknik Mesin di FTI ITS Surabaya Dr Ing Herman Sasongko.

"Mayoritas anggota tim ’Sapu Angin 1’ (mobil masa depan) dan ’Sapu Angin 2’ (mobil perkotaan) adalah anggota klub otomotif. Karena itu, mereka membuat sendiri kedua mobil itu mulai dari desain hingga mewujudkannya," katanya.

Dengan desain sendiri itu, katanya, anggota tim "Sapu Angin" sangat siap apabila diminta untuk mewujudkan urban concept (mobil perkotaan) yang menjadi juara pertama di kelasnya dan futuristic protothype (mobil masa depan) yang menduduki peringkat delapan di kelasnya itu.

"Masalahnya, kami sebagai orang akademika tidak mampu memproduksi secara massal karena universitas itu bukan perusahaan, tetapi kami sangat siap untuk mewujudkan apabila ada keinginan politik dari pemerintah untuk itu," katanya.

Bahkan, katanya, klub otomotif di Jurusan Teknik Mesin itu sudah memiliki mobil komodo yang merupakan mobil mewah untuk kawasan hutan dan mobil bertenaga matahari.

Mantan dosen di Jerman yang kembali ke ITS pada tahun 1998 itu mengaku iri dengan Pemerintah Malaysia yang membiayai seluruh tim mahasiswa Malaysia dalam kompetisi yang digagas Shell itu.

"Kedua tim ITS itu hanya mendapatkan dukungan dana dari Shell sebesar Rp30 juta, kemudian kami mencari sponsor dari alumni untuk melengkapi hingga Rp300 juta. Alhamdulillah, tim ITS akhirnya juara," katanya.

Lomba mobil hemat bahan bakar tingkat Asia itu diikuti 58 peserta dari 11 negara, yakni Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapura, Filipina, Thailand, Vietnam, India, Pakistan, Iran, China, dan Jepang.

Untuk kategori futuristic protothype, mobil "Sapu Angin 1" dari ITS Surabaya hanya menduduki peringkat delapan, sedangkan juara pertama diraih tim mobil "ATE-1" dari Thailand dan runner up diraih tim mobil "Fame" dari Jepang.

Indonesia mengirimkan sembilan tim dari ITB, UI, UGM, dan ITS. UI-ITB mengirimkan tiga tim (mobil Keris, Equator, dan Pasopati untuk tim UI, sedangkan tim ITB adalah Cikal, Rajawali, dan Heave), ITS mengirimkan dua tim (Sapu Angin 1 dan 2), dan UGM mengirim satu tim (Semar).

Kini, kemampuan tim dari ITS itu bergantung pada kebijakan politik untuk kemandirian di bidang otomotif karena sumber daya manusia dari Indonesia terbukti tidak kalah dari negara-negara lain.

lol, yang diketawain dunia sebenarnya adalah kenyataan konyol bahwa ada orang yang dipenjara hanya karena melakukan hubungan seksual. ahahaha.. negara konyol: keliatan bangat munafiknya. Padahal nggak ada sama sekali hukumnya. Oh ya, aku lupa: Indon kan nggak punya sama sekali rule of law.
