Indonesian economic policy package will push the world economy into force
President of Indonesia Joko Widodo has launched a package of six economic policies are expected to encourage increased domestic and foreign investment, and stimulate economic growth evenly in Indonesia.
One example of when the national economy grew only 4.5 percent per year, then this year fisheries sector grew eight percent and the agricultural sector grew by an average of over 6 percent, even if the release of the sixth paker economic policies and will be followed by a packet The next stage of economic policy, it is not impossible in 2030 Indonesia will surpass the economy of Australia and South Korea, Indonesia and even now already exceeded the strength of the UK economy.
Now it is again rapidly growing Asian economy is shifting the economic effect of the United States and Europe. That is why the United States began more glance Asia and began shifting its economic closeness with Europe and the Middle East by establishing Trans Pacific Economic Cooperation countries.
Jokowi became seizure Two Axis World Economic Strength
Beijing - Implementation of the APEC summit in 2014 in Beijing, China became the arena of interests between the two shaft power of the world economy, the United States on one side with China and Russia on the other. President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) who are new to the international stage became a bone of contention between them.
Americans joined the Trans-Pacific Partnership (Trans-Pacific Partnership / TPP). TPP is a free trade agreement which was followed by seventeen countries in Asia-Pacific were also followed by some ASEAN countries, namely Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, and Vietnam.
While Russia entered the Asia-Pacific Free Trade Zone (Free Trade Area of Asia Pacific / FTAAP). FTAAP is considered as an effort towards Regional Economy Integration (REI) for shared prosperity in the region.
President of the Republic of Indonesia Joko Widodo said Indonesia did not want to be just a pull of the market for the economic interests of the big countries that but the important thing is cooperation can provide real benefits to Indonesia.
"Of course, if we look at the interests look for friends. Our own free constitution is active. I want to find friends anyone can dong, would here- here. But with a record of national interest, the interests of the people we have under-united, "said President Jokowi, Monday (11/10/2014) night.
Jokowi neutrality clearly visible when the photo session with the leaders of the APEC summit in 2014. There Jokowi stood flanked by US President Barack Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping alliance and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
"It was a symbol, it must be read. We became seizure so loh, "said Jokowi while uncover the meaning behind the position.
Considering the Trans Pacific Partnership
Executif Director of Central Study Of Asia Pacific (CSAP)
Jokowi President's visit to the United States raises a lot of speculation, especially since the President's statement that expresses wish to join the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).
It is a lot of people believe that foreign policy toward Indonesia is currently heading to the United States.
But apart from the desire to join the TPP or not, we should know that today, the container to countries in the Asia Pacific region is very necessary for cooperation and economic development.
"But apart from the desire to join the TPP or not, we should know that today, the container to countries in the Asia Pacific region is very necessary for cooperation and economic development"
Asia-Pacific organizations should not represent a particular country's political agenda but rather creating a sense of equality among each country so that it can benefit every member states.
So, the question arises to respond to the President's statement Jokowi who want to join the TPP is about what strategic benefits that can be generated for Indonesia?
Before answering this case of course we need to probe deeper about the potential of what is owned by Indonesia in the international arena.
Today we know that the global economy is shifting from the Atlantic to the era of the Pacific era thus indirectly the role of Asia-Pacific countries to be very calculated. And Indonesia is now one of the most potential to become a major player in the Asia Pacific region.
Interest in various countries have proved the tug of war between the forces of the global economy to get the attention of Indonesia. One of them is done by offering a variety of investment funds to facilitate the development agenda in the country.
One potential geopolitical position of Indonesia is very strategic to have four of the nine choke point (narrow strait), which became the main sea lanes of world trade that is the Strait of Malacca, Sunda Strait, the Strait of Lombok and Makassar Strait.
Shifting the economy to the Asia Pacific region indirectly increase the volume of distribution of goods to the Asia-Pacific region. This makes the industrialized countries increasingly rely on Indonesia's strategic position.
When Indonesia was prepared infrastructure and distribution system mempuni course dependency robust economies will increasingly strengthened.
This is seen by Jokowi with Indonesia as a pivot trigger maritime world. To achieve this, Indonesia requires adequate maritime infrastructure development.
To realize the construction of maritime infrastructure is clearly require significant investment funds. Indonesia needs to embrace countries to participate and realize the potential of Indonesia as the world's maritime axis.
On the other hand, are located in the Asia Pacific region that has long been awakened soliditasnya namely ASEAN. On the other hand, Indonesia is one of the influential countries in the ASEAN region that has a chance to build a new economic powers in Asia Pacific era.
ASEAN solid targets measurable economic achievement is frightening for a variety of powerful countries in the world. Therefore, Indonesia's ability to regroup in ASEAN will determine the bargaining power of Indonesia in the eyes of the world.
The stronger the bargaining power of Indonesia, the greater the opportunity for Indonesia to speak at international organizations.
"The stronger the bargaining power of Indonesia, the greater the opportunity for Indonesia to speak at international organizations"
So when I come back to review of the Trans Pacific Partnership since its inception in fact be seen as an opportunity or a threat.
Opportunities for the success of the domestic agenda could be obtained, but also need the right preconditions.
Indonesia should be aware that when playing in the arena of the wider region such as this must remain grounded in ASEAN. ASEAN is the most appropriate starting point before going any further into the Trans Pacific Partnership.
Because ASEAN is expected to be "European" of Asia will be the economic center of Asia Pacific. On this awareness, if Indonesia wants to expand cooperation in this regard to the Trans Pacific Partnership, Indonesia should consider carefully the extent to which Indonesia's bargaining position in the organization.
We see that the Trans Pacific Partnership is led by the United States where it became a balancing step over China's influence in the Asia Pacific region.
Logically when Indonesia joined the Trans Pacific Partnership is opening the doors of cooperation with the United States and its allies.
Perhaps herein lies the free and active politics being played by the President Jokowi. To make Indonesia as the axis of the maritime world, Indonesia should be able to embrace the big countries.
However it is important to remember that we can not quickly make a decision to join or not with this Trans Pacific Partnership. Because of the lack of clarity regarding cooperation agreements as it will be taken.
At least there are two things that will be on the agenda of the Trans Pacific Partnership that deregulation of export-import, which means expansion of markets and the flow of investment easier.
When considering the potential within Indonesia today is actually the most urgent need is the development of maritime infrastructure.
The decision whether or not to join the Trans Pacific Partnership should be based on the strength of Indonesia in ASEAN as well as support the development of maritime infrastructure.
