Inclusive, collaborative and sustainable development is the key to realising the Golden Indonesia Vision 2045
The Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin) directly handed over the Roadmap of Indonesia Emas 2045 to President Joko Widodo at the Nusantara State Capital (IKN), Friday (22/9/2023). The roadmap, which was prepared inclusively and collaboratively, is expected to be a development guide to complement the National Long-Term Development Plan (RPJPN) 2025-2045.
Chairman of Kadin Indonesia, Arsjad Rasjid, said the Indonesia Gold 2045 Roadmap is Kadin Indonesia's offering to the nation. With this roadmap, it is hoped that all initiatives will lead to a national development plan to achieve the 2045 Golden Indonesia Vision.
"This roadmap is made so that all efforts, programmes, and initiatives can realise the achievement of the economic development vision of the Golden Indonesia 2045. This road map was made by involving all components of the nation in its preparation with the spirit of gotong royong for the future as a developed country, containing concrete steps with metrics as a benchmark for development," he said, on the sidelines of the handover ceremony held at the Nusantara State Capital (IKN), East Kalimantan.
Arsjad explained that the government has set a goal for Indonesia to get out of the middle income trap. Indonesia is also expected to become the 4th largest economy in the world based on purchasing power parity (PPP) gross domestic product (GDP) in 2045.
"All the potential resources available, make the Indonesia Emas 2045 Roadmap more relevant for Indonesia and the nation's leaders in the future, to provide guidance in utilising opportunities and overcoming challenges faced to achieve high, inclusive, and sustainable national economic growth," said Arsjad.
Priority Aspects of the Golden Indonesia Vision 2045
The roadmap is based on four priority aspects. First, improving food security and health, by advancing health and food services. Second, the welfare aspect, which is not only about gross domestic product (GDP) but also people with high income and a decent life. This aspect can be fulfilled through industrial downstreaming and digitalisation of MSMEs.
Third, inclusiveness, which focuses on gender equality and empowerment of vulnerable populations, considering that all communities have the same rights to access basic needs. Fourth, the aspect of sustainability, namely achieving the decarbonisation target while still paying attention to and maintaining environmental sustainability.
Arsjad underlined that economic development cannot be done well without applying cultural and national values, including gotong royong and Bhinneka Tunggal Ika. "Therefore, in preparing this road map, Kadin Indonesia involves various components of the nation, ranging from industry associations, trade unions, business people, academics, religious organisations, to non-governmental organisations (NGOs)," Arsjad concluded.
The President of Indonesia, Joko Widodo, directly received the Roadmap of Golden Indonesia 2045 by Kadin Indonesia. "The Roadmap submitted by Kadin Indonesia to the Indonesian Government will be used as a guideline in planning towards the Golden Indonesia 2045," added President Jokowi.
Head of the National Capital Authority (IKN), Bambang Susantono, also enthusiastically welcomed Kadin Indonesia's commitment to realising the vision of a Golden Indonesia 2045 through the submission of the Indonesia Gold 2045 Roadmap at IKN. "We welcome Kadin Indonesia's initiative to submit the Indonesia Emas 2045 Roadmap at IKN. This is a good symbol of optimism, especially done at IKN which is a symbol of the vision of Indonesia Emas 2045".
