Indonesia To Host 21st APEC Summit In 2013
November 16, 2009 19:38 PM

SINGAPORE, Nov 16 (Bernama) -- Indonesia will host the 21st Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in 2013, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said here on Monday.

President Yudhoyono made the statement at Marina Mandarin Hotel here on Monday morning before leaving for Jakarta after attending a series of APEC meetings, Indonesia's Antara news agency reported.

"The next APEC meeting will be held in Japan, and then consecutively in the United States, Russia, and in Indonesia in 2013," President Yudhoyono said.

The president expressed hope that Indonesia would be a good host country for the 21st APEC summit.

"I hope our nation will become a good host for the 21st APEC summit in 2013 and to have a wider opportunity as possible from it," the president said.

APEC is a forum for 21 Pacific Rim countries to cooperate on regional trade and investment liberalization and facilitation.

APEC's objective is to enhance economic growth and prosperity in the region and to strengthen the Asia-Pacific community.

The location of the meeting rotates annually among the member economies, and a famous tradition involves the attending Leaders dressing in a national costume of the host member.

In January 1989, Australian Prime Minister Bob Hawke called for more effective economic cooperation across the Pacific Rim region.

This led to the first meeting of APEC in the Australian capital Canberra in November, chaired by Australian Foreign Affairs Minister Gareth Evans.

Attended by political ministers from twelve countries, the meeting concluded with commitments for future annual meetings in Singapore and South Korea.

The initial proposal was opposed ASEAM countries which instead proposed the East Asia Economic Caucus which would exclude non-Asian countries such as the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

The plan was opposed and strongly criticized by Japan and the United States.

The first APEC Economic Leaders' Meeting occurred in 1993 when US president Bill Clinton, after discussions with Australian prime minister Paul Keating, invited the heads of government from member economies to a summit on Blake Island.

He believed it would help bring the stalled Uruguay Round of trade talks on track.

During the meeting in 1994 in Bogor, Indonesia, APEC Leaders adopted the Bogor Goals that aim for free and open trade and investment in the Asia-Pacific by 2010 for industrialized economies and by 2020 for developing economies.

Jakarta Jadi Tujuan Wisata Favorit Warga Malaysia

Jakarta. Meski sempat terjadi ketegangan dengan Indonesia, warga Malaysia ternyata masih menyukai Jakarta sebagai tempat tujuan wisata. Buktinya, Badan Pusat Statistik (BPS) DKI Jakarta mencatat, selama September 2009 saja, wisatawan asal Malaysia yang bervakansi ke Jakarta mencapai 9.671 orang.

Menurut Kepala BPS DKI Jakarta, Agus Suherman, jumlah wisatawan dari negeri Jiran ini memang yang terbesar di kuartal III 2009. Dari total jumlah wisatawan mancanegara yang melancong ke Jakarta selama kuartal III tahun ini sebanyak 376.176, terbanyak dari Malaysia sebanyak 49.552 orang. Setelah Malaysia menyusul wisatawan asing asal China, Singapura, Jepang, dan Belanda.

Agus bilang kalau wisatawan asing ini datang kerena sudah melihat kondisi Jakarta yang aman. "Terlebih pusat perbelanjaan kita sudah seperti di luar negeri," tambahnya.

M3nergy to bid for FPSO jobs in Indonesia
Published: 2009/11/19
http://www.m3nergy.com/pages/Index.aspx

Oil and gas field services provider M3nergy Bhd is looking to participate in Indonesian tenders in order to expand its floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) business.

"We are bidding for the first contract for a FPSO job in Indonesia. We were called up a week ago to see whether we wanted to participate," said group managing director and chief executive officer Datuk Shahrazi Sha'ari.

It is understood that if successful with the tendering, this would be M3nergy's first project in Indonesia. The company is also looking to bid for a liquefied petroleum gas floating, storage and offloading contract in Indonesia. Currently, M3nergy has operations in Malaysia and Thailand.

At a briefing here today, Shahrazi said the closing date for tenders for the first FPSO job is Jan 3 next year. "By April next year, we should be able to know the result. Before the end of the current financial year ending June 2010, we should see something for the company," he said.

Shahrazi said if the M3nergy is successful in the bidding, it would take two years to complete the conversion of the FPSO work, adding that it will become another income stream for the company from 2012 to 2013.

He said the company would also be actively tendering for jobs in the future, with Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam and Australia as the focus.

M3nergy currently owns and operates two FPSO facilities, comprising FPSO Perintis and FSO (floating, storage and offloading) Ratu Songkhla. It also operates a FSO facility for Carigali Hess Operating Co Sdn Bhd.

Shahrazi said the FPSO business is a core activity for M3nergy which contributed 34 per cent of its turnover, adding that the company aimed to increase the contribution to 50 per cent with the upcoming bids.

According to him, the FPSO business is not exposed to the economic downturn and fluctuating crude oil prices as contracts are signed for the long term.

For the current financial year ending June 2010, the company expects to see mild impact in the second half following the completion of the FSO Ratu Songkhla in September, he said.

The vessel has been commissioned and is ready to receive condensate as soon as Carigali-PTTEPI Operating Company Sdn Bhd begins production. M3nergy will be operating the facility for the next 16 years.

On the outlook, Shahrazi said the company's performance is expected to further improve as the long-term fundamentals of the oil market have not changed and demand is still projected to grow over the next 20 to 30 years.

Touching on the barite supply, he said M3nergy had received enquiries from Exxon on the supply of barite for the multinational's drilling work in the Philippines.

"The new plant in Labuan has a production capacity of about 120,000 million tonnes per annum. The capacity will increase if we get the contract," he added.

Barite powder is used as a weighting agent in drilling fluids to prevent oil well blowouts during high pressure drilling, and M3nergy is providing about 80 per cent of the barite supply for the drilling industry. -- BERNAMA

Indonesia To Build World's Longest Bridge
November 19, 2009 19:39 PM

JAKARTA, Nov 19 (Bernama) -- Indonesia would begin constructing the world's would-be longest bridge in Sunda Strait connecting two main islands of Sumatra and Java in 2014, as an effort to boost infrastructure development in the southeast Asian largest economy.

The 30-km long bridge is expected to boost economy in both islands, particularly in Sumatra island, in which over 80 percent of the country's about 230 million population live, said Public Works Minister Joko Kirmanto said here Thursday.

"The bridge could become a landmark of Indonesia," Antara news agency cited the minister as saying.

Kirmanto said that that Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono had asked him to establish a task force team to analyze the mega project.

"We expect the construction would start in 2014. The President has instructed the public minister to set up a team which will analyze the project within the first 100 days of the cabinet work, " he told reporters after a cabinet meeting at the State Palace here.

"As the technology of bridge has developed, the bridge could be a land mark of Indonesia," said Kirmanto.

The project could cost over 100,000 trillion rupiah (some US$10.6 billion), according to a pre-feasibility study.

"The team would count the real cost of the project and to determine the source of the funds. It may be from the state budget or private sector, or the combination of them," he said.

In January 2010, the team would start working, said Kirmanto.

According to the pre-feasibility study, the bridge would have the longest span in the world, about 220 meters.

President Yudhoyono, who was re-elected for his second term on July 8, has promised to boost development of infrastructure during his second term to reach an annual economic growth of at least 7 percent at the end of his term in 2014.

In June, Indonesia completed the building of the longest bridge in Southeast Asia with about 5 kilometers in length, connecting East Java and its island of Madura.

Experts had predicted that the sea ports in the strait could not facilitate the growing economic activities in the two islands within ten years.

Even though I am Malaysian, I think it is way much better for Indonesia to prioritize this, rather than thinking the Sumatra-Melaka Bridge…..linking Java & Sumatra is very important for the sake of their economy, strategic planning as well as national integration…

wonder why they build the Surabaya-Madura bridge first…..?

Samchem to invest US$2.2m in Indonesia
Published: 2009/11/20

Samchem Holdings Bhd, a leading industrial chemical distributor in the region, plans to invest US$2.2 million in its new subsidiary in Jakarta.

Chief executive officer Ng Thin Poh said the subsidiary would be incorporated with an initial paid-up capital of US$250,000 which would subsequently be increased to US$1 million.

Samchem today signed a shareholders agreement with Herisun Hassan, president and director of PT Prasandha Byantara Abadi (PBA), to form the new subsidiary in the Indonesian capital.

"Under this strategic partnership, we will hold a 60 per cent majority stake," Ng told reporters after the signing.

The new subsidiary will purchase the necessary fixed assets, including a factory, warehouse, administrative office and a fleet vehicles for logistics needs.

"The market value of these assets is expected to be approximately US$1.6 million (approximately RM5.4 million)," Ng disclosed.

Samchem expects a strong revenue stream of RM100 million from the Indonesian market in 2011 with the new subsidiary and in line with the booming industrial sector there.

"This is indeed a win-win situation for both parties with the new subsidiary able to tap into Samchem's expertise in the chemical supply chain solutions.

"Samchem on the other hand, would be able to utilise the existing distribution network in Indonesia, to market industrial chemicals," said Herisun.

According to Ng, the Indonesian market contributed RM4 million or 23 percent to the group's foreign revenue of RM17.5 million in 2008.

"With this new venture, we will introduce a lot of new products, new agencies and distributors, to further expand in the country," he said. The new subsidiary, which is expected to begin operations in the first quarter next year, will effectively enlarge the company's revenue base and be poised to take on a leading position in the Indonesian chemicals market.

The Indonesian chemicals market is estimated to be at least three times that of Malaysia. PBA was incorporated in Jakarta in early 1997 as a chemical distribution company and its network stretches beyond major cities such as Jakarta, Bandung, Surabaya and includes Java Island.

Samchem currently markets over 400 industrial chemical products to an extensive client network of more than 2,500 in the region. It offers seamless supply chain solutions to global petrochemical companies that cater to a wide spectrum of applications.

Some of the group's long established industrial chemical suppliers include ExxonMobil,Shell, BASF Petronas and OPTIMAL Chemical. - Bernama

Gubernur Riau M Rusli Zainal dianggap berjasa besar pada kemajuan Negeri Melaka, karena itu dianugerahi gelar Drajah Mulia Seri Melaka.

Riauterkini-PEKANBARU- Sempena menyambut hari ulang tahun (HUT) Tuan Yang Terutama Yang Dipertua Negeri Melaka, Malaysia Tun Datuk Seri Utama Mohammad Khalid bin Yaakob yang ke-71, diserahkan anugerah kepada Gubernur Riau M Rusli Zainal gelar Drajah Mulia Seri Melaka (DMSM). Anugerah tersebut diserahkan pagi ini, Ahad (22/11/09) di Melaka, Malaysia.

Menurut Kabag Penerangan Biro Humas Setdaprov Riau Chairul Rizki yang menyertai keberangkatan Gubri ke Melaka, anugerah gelar DMSM diberikan kepada gubernur karena negeri bagian Melaka menilai, selama ini gubernur memiliki jasa besar untuk perkembangan dan peningkatan hubungan baik antara Indonesia-Malaysia umumnya, dan khususnya antara Riau dan Melaka.

Atas anugerah gelar DMSM dari Negeri Melaka tersebut, lanjut Rizki, gubernur mengucapkan banyak terima kasih dan akan dijadikan ispirasi dalam mengembangkan hubungan yang lebih erat antara Melaka dan Riau. “Gubernur berterima kasih, dan berjanji akan terus memeliharan dan meningkatkan hubungan yang saling menguntungkan antara Riau dan Melaka,” demikian penjelasannya.riauterkini

istri gubri, ibu septina Primawati Rusli sebelumnya juga pernah menerima gelar anugerah gemilang presiden dan dari persekutuan pengakap Malaysia.


sebelumnya pada tahun 2004 lalu ketua besar menteri Melaka juga dianugerahu gelar adat oleh Lembaga Adat Melayu Riau (LAMR) di Bengkalis.

Gubernur Riau Dianugerahi Gelar Adat
Jumat, 10 Desember 2004

BENGKALIS (Riau Online) : Untuk yang kesekian kalinya, Gubernur Riau HM Rusli Zainal SE menerima anugerah adat dari Lembaga Adat Melayu Riau (LAMR). Selasa (3/5), bersempana pertemuan pemimpinan adat Melayu Serumpun III, Rusli dianugerahi galar "Sri Utama Payung Negeri".

Penganugerahan gelar adat itu ditandai dengan penyematan seperangkat perlengkapan adat yang terdiri atas tanjak (semacam topi), selempang kuning, bengkung (ikat pinggang kain berwarna kuning) dan sebilah keris.

Anugerah adat itu diberikan kepada Rusli karena yang bersangkutan karena dinilai mampu menjalankan tampuk kepemimpinan yang baik dan dianggap mampu mensejahterakan rakyatnya.

Gelar adat "Sri Utama Dwibuana" diterima Ketua Menteri Besar Malaka, Datuk Seri Haji Mohammad Ali Mohammad Rustam karena dinilai mampu menyatukan dan membawa kejayaan bangsa Melayu Serumpun.

Usai penyematan perlengkapan adat, para pemangku adat melakukan ritual Tepuk Tebung Tawar bagi penerima gelar dengan menaburi keduanya dengan beras putih, beras kunyit dan bunga rampai serta membasahi tangan mereka dengan air melati.

"Anugerah ini merupakan amanah besar yang harus dijunjung untuk memajukan daerah Riau karena seperti diketahui Riau adalah tanah dengan berbagai kultur budaya sehingga semangat kebersamaan adat harus ditanamkan agar semua daerah tumbuh serentak," kata Rusli yang dikerubungi wartawan.

Rusli juga mengatakan baginya gelar itu tidak semata bermakna simbolis tetapi merupakan sebuah tanggung jawab untuk menanamkan kesadaran berbudaya Melayu.

Uniknya, tidak hanya Rusli dan Ketua Menteri Malaka yang diberi anugerah adat. Seluruh Kepala Desa dan Kelurahan di Bengkalis juga dikukuhkan sebagai datuk penghulu adat Melayu Riau. (win)

Ariantec To Expand It's Business In Indonesia Next Year
November 23, 2009 18:16 PM

PETALING JAYA, Nov 23 (Bernama) -- Ariantec Global Bhd, an enterprise and telco solutions provider of network infrastructure, is set to expand its information technology business in Indonesia by the second quarter of next year, its executive director Vincent Loy said Monday.

He said the company has had demonstrations of its technological products for several potential Indonesian buyers and the response has been positive.

The project was developed by the group's subsidiaries, Ariantec Sdn Bhd and Spammerspy Technologies International Sdn Bhd, he told reporters after the company's extraordinary annual general meeting.

The company, formerly known as Global Soft (MSC) Bhd, already has a presence in Indonesia through its on-going coal-fired power plant project in Central Java.

"We were focused in the Malaysian market earlier but now we are expanding our services to the Asian market as the demand there is huge.

"Therefore, Indonesia was chosen as it is a more convenient and a familiar country for us," Loy said.

Ariantec is also looking to expand to several other countries such as Cambodia, Singapore, Vietnam and Pakistan.

He said the company, which earned a revenue of RM51.7 million in 2008, was forecasting a revenue of RM63 million for 2009 and RM73.8 million for 2010.

Loy also said the company has allocated 20 per cent from its gross profits annually for research and development (R&D) purpose.

Meanwhile, Ariantec Executive Director Alex Chen told reporters the company was also prepared to diversify and expand its business by becoming a renewable energy provider in Malaysia.

"Eventhough it is surprising to some quarters, we have been doing our R&D in providing solar and wind power systems for the past two years and we hope to open a new company under the group to manage this particular sector next year," he said.

To this end, he said the company would likely be securing a huge contract in Malaysia in the renewable energy business next year.

FERRY LINKS TAWAU-EAST KALIMANTAN
8th December, 2009
http://www.newsabahtimes.com.my/nstweb/fullstory/34362

TAWAU: The absence of an air link between Tawau and the Kalimantan region, especially East Kalimantan, makes the ferry service a vital link between the two.

The ferry not only helps in the economics of residents of Tawau, Sungai Nyamuk, Nunukan and Tarakan but also contributes to cement social and cultural ties between Malaysians and Indonesians.

“At this time, no less than 500 people use the ferry from Tawau to Sungai Nyamuk, Nunukan and Tarakan each day and an equal number returning,” chairman of Konsortium Feri Penumpang Tawau, Mohd Sharif Nanang, told Bernama.

“Workers from Indonesia who work in various sectors in Sabah usually come in through Tarakan and Nunukan on to Tawau. When these workers want to go back it is through Tawau,” he said.

Mohd Sharif said the number of passengers from Tawau to Nunukan and Tarakan or otherwise depended on the frequency of the passenger vessels from Sulawesi.

According to Mohd Sharif there are 14 ferries at the Customs, Immigration & Quarantine (CIQ) complex here which provide services between Tawau and three destinations in East Kalimantan.

He said each day a ferry would go from Tawau to Tarakan and back while for the Tawau-Nunukan route there are two ferries. The Nunukan-Tawau direction has eight services daily.

For the Tawau-Sungai Nyamuk destination, an Indonesian province in Pulau Sebatik, there is one ferry with a capacity of 100 passengers for daily service.

The Tawau-Sungai Nyamuk passengers are charged RM25, Tawau-Nunukan (RM65) and Tawau-Tarakan (RM130). The journey from Tawau to Sungai Nyamuk takes about a half hour, Tawau-Nunukan (one hour) and Tawau-Tarakan (three hours).

Mohd Sharif said all the ferries, whether registered in Malaysia or Indonesia, have different passenger capacity depending on the size of the ferry, but on the average it was 100 to 158 passengers.

“Besides being equipped with safety equipment, there is air-conditioning and video games for passenger comfort,” said Mohd Sharif.

On the future of the Tawau-Kalimantan ferry service, Mohd Sharif said it was bright especially given the support of the tourism industry.

According to Mohd Sharif, the draw of Tawau to people from the neighbouring country was still the shopping.

“Tawau has a very high potential as a tourist destination, especially for shopping. People from Sungai Nyamuk come every day,” he said.

Mohd Sharif proposed to the government to upgrade the Tawau CIQ complex as it was always overcrowded.

He also urged the government to review the RM5 per person tax for each passenger implemented about six months ago as it was burdensome coupled with the uncomfortable situation at the CIQ.
