Asean Summit benefits Indonesia to promote itself

Jakarta, 24 Nov, 2011

"The holding of the ASEAN summit followed by the East Asia Summit in Bali will reinforce the view that the ASEAN region is becoming one of the world`s economic and business hubs. And , Indonesia in particular is considered to have performed the best and to hold the most promising prospects," said Chris Kanter, vice chairman of the Indonesian Employers Association (Apindo), here on Wednesday.

He said Indonesia should be able to take advantage of the present opportunities and not lose the momentum because the current world truly recognizes the ASEAN region`s vital role in efforts to imrpove the global economic conditions.

Therefore, the Indonesian government must immediately implement various programs related to the MP3EI (Indonesia Economic Development Acceleration and Expansion Masterplan ) which had also been approved by the business world.

Chris also said there were still many things to do such as quickly revising the land acquisition and labor laws.

Meanwhile, the chairman of the Fisheries Association of Indonesia (GAPPINDO) Herwindo proposed that the ASEAN markets, including Indonesia be thrown open, especially after the implementation of the ASEAN Economic Community in 2015, including in terms of incoming investment.

Herwindo also said he could not yet see a direct relevance of the results of the ASEAN Summit to the fisheries sector.

Earlier, the National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas) estimated that the implementation of primary and support activities in the six corridors of Economic Development Acceleration and Expansion of Indonesia (MP3EI) Master plan would absorb 9.44 million workers.

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.
