Under this theme, the Summit will bring together APEC Economic Leaders and over 1500 regional and global business executives for a wide ranging discussion on the global economic outlook, regional integration, innovation, infrastructure, and finance.

 Indonesian President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo  delivered a presentation at the APEC CEO Summit on November 10, 2014, in Beijing, China.

Excellencies, distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen, and CEOs, good morning.
First, on behalf of the Indonesian Government and the people of Indonesia, I would like to thank you for coming to my presentation. Today, I am happy, I am very happy, to be with you, because you know I was a businessman years ago. So, this morning, I am very happy because we can talk about business, about investment with all of you.
The picture shows you our map of Indonesia. We have a population of 240 million and the distance is like from London in UK to Istanbul in Turkey. And imagine, we have 17,000 islands. 17,000 islands.
Our national budget for 2015 is $167 billion and for fuel subsidy is $27 billion. It's huge. So we want to channel our fuel subsidy from consumption to the productive activities. From consumptive activities to productive activities. We want to channel our fuel subsidy to the farm for seeds, for fertilizers, and also for irrigation. And we want to build dams – 25 dams in 5 years from our fuel subsidy to maintain the water supply to the farming area.

Some subsidy we want to channel to the fishermen, to give them boat engines, to give them refrigerators. We want to increase the income of the fishermen. Some fuel subsidy we want to give to micro and small enterprises in the villages. We want to help them raise their working capital. And some subsidy we want to channel to the health program, the education program. And some subsidy we want to channel to infrastructure.
In 5 years we want to build 24 seaports and deep seaports. As you know, we have 17,000 islands, so we need seaports and we need deep seaports. And this is your opportunity: 24 seaports and deep seaports.
The picture shows our Jakarta Port, Tanjung Priok port. In 2009, the capacity is 3.6 million TEUs a year, and our plan in 2017 is around 15 million TEUs a year. This is the potential ports in Indonesia. This is your opportunity. We want to build in Sumatera island, in Kalimantan island, in Java island, in Sulawesi island, in Maluku island, also in Papua island.
And we plan to build our railway track, railway network. Now we have already in Java and we want to build in Sumatera island, in Kalimantan island, in Sulawesi island and also in Papua island. This is your opportunity.
Now we talk about mass transportation. We want to build our mass transportation in 6 big cities in Indonesia. We have started in Jakarta last year, and we want to build in Medan, in Makassar, in Semarang, in Bandung, in Surabaya. So, this is also your opportunity, because you know our national budget is limited.
Now we talk about our maritime agenda. We want to build sea toll. What is sea toll? Sea toll is maritime transportation system to make our transportation cost lower, to make our transportation cost more efficient. We want to build from the west to the east. We hope not only the vessels can enter our sea toll but also mother vessels can enter the sea toll. So, the price, the cost of the transportation is more efficient.
For example, the price of the cement, one sack cement, in Java island is $6 per sack cement. But in Papua island the price is $150 per sack cement. Imagine, 25 times. So we hope with our sea toll the price in our islands is the same.
Electricity. We need power plants. We need around 35,000 megavolts to build our industries, to build our projects, to build our industrial zones, our manufacturing zones. So, we need power plants. This is also your opportunity to invest in this project. Because we need our power plants for manufacturing, for industrial zones.
Many investors, a lot of investors, when they come to me, most of them they always complain about land acquisition. I will push my ministers, my governors, my mayors, to help clear this problem. I have experience with land acquisition when I was a governor. We have a project, the Jakarta Outer Ring Road, started 15 years ago but was stopped 8 years ago, because we have a problem here: 1.5 kilometers unfinished because there is 143 families who do not accept with the compensation price. So last year I invite them. I go to them then I invite them to lunch and dinner. Four times. Ah, this is me. I invite them and then we talk about the problem. Four times. Four times meeting. And the problem is cleared.
And now the toll road has been used (starting) 7 month ago.
Now we talk business permit. We have national one-stop service office that can help you, that will serve you, that will facilitate you, that will give you your business permit. For example, principle business permit needs 3 days to process.
Finally, again on behalf of the Indonesian government and the people of Indonesia, I would like to thank you for your listening (to) my presentation. We are waiting for you to come to Indonesia. We are waiting for you to invest in Indonesia.
Thank you.
Thank you.

First New Zealand Honorary Consul for Bali

First New Zealand Honorary Consul for Bali
Selandia Baru mengangkat Konsul Kehormatan pertama untuk Bali

Penunjukkan Ibu Siti Indriyani Siddik (dikenal sebagai Indy) sebagai Konsul Kehormatan Selandia Baru untuk Bali yang pertama dirayakan melalui sebuah acara “peluncuran resmi yang akan diadakan di kediamannya di Bali malam ini. Para tamu di acara ini mencakup para pejabat penting Pemerintah Provinsi Bali, para pelaku dunia usaha, para pelaku sektor pariwisata dan hiburan dan juga komunitas Selandia Baru dan para perwakilan Konsulat dan Konsul Kehormatan lainnya.

Indy, seorang pengusaha yang tinggal di Bali, adalah sahabat lama Selandia Baru. Ia dan suaminya memiliki hubungan bisnis yang lama dengan Selandia Baru.

“Bali adalah pemimpin nasional dalam bidang pariwisata, pendidikan, pertanian dan perdagangan hasil kerajinan tangan yang dinamis. Oleh karenanya, provinsi ini mewakili sebuah fokus penting untuk hubungan Selandia Baru dengan Indonesia,” ujar Duta Besar Selandia Baru untuk Indonesia, David Taylor.

“Penunjukkan Indy akan menyediakan peluang bagi Selandia Baru untuk mempererat dan memperkuat kolaborasi dengan provinsi yang penting ini. Sebagai Konsul Kehormatan, Indy akan membantu untuk memperkuat hubungan resmi dan hubungan bisnis antara Selandia Baru dan Bali, dan juga membantu dalam berbagai soal konsular. Saya senang ia mengambil peran yang penting ini.”

Penunjukkan Indy sebagai Konsul Kehormatan untuk Bali mengikuti penunjukkan Bapak Harry Sunogo sebagai Konsul Kehormatan untuk Jawa Timur. Bersama, kedua penunjukkan ini menunjukkan sebuah langkah ke depan lanjutan dalam hubungan bilateral yang meningkat secara signifikan.

Penunjukkan ini membuat menjadi Konsul Kehormatan sebuah urusan keluarga, karena suami Indy, Firdaus Siddik, adalah Konsul Kehormatan untuk Brazil. Kami paham bahwa ini kedua kalinya di Indonesia sepasang suami istri memegang posisi Konsul Kehormatan. 

Mrs Siti Indriyani Siddik’s (known as Indy) recent appointment as New Zealand’s first Honorary Consul to Bali is being celebrated through an “official launch event to be held at her residence in Bali this evening. Guests at the function will include important members of Bali provincial government, business, tourism and entertainment sectors as well as some members of the New Zealand community and other Consulate and Honorary Consul representatives.

Indy, a Bali-based businesswoman, is a long-time friend of New Zealand. She and her husband have long-standing business ties with New Zealand.

“Bali is a national leader in the dynamic fields of tourism, education, agriculture and trade in handicrafts. As such, the province represents a key focus for New Zealand’s relationship with Indonesia” says the New Zealand Ambassador to Indonesia, David Taylor.

“The appointment of Indy will provide New Zealand with the opportunity to solidify and strengthen collaboration with this important province. As Honorary Consul, Indy will help to reinforce official ties and enhance business connections between New Zealand and Bali, as well as assisting in consular matters. I’m delighted she is taking on this important role”.

Indy’s appointment as Honorary Consul to Bali follows the recent appointment of Mr Harry Sunogo as Honorary Consul for East Java. Together, these two appointments signal a further step forward in what is an increasingly significant bilateral relationship.

The appointment makes being Honorary Consul a family affair, as Indy’s husband, Firdaus Siddik, is the Honorary Consul for Brazil. We understand this is only the second time in Indonesia that a husband and wife have both held Honorary Consul positions.

David Taylor is currently New Zealand's Ambassador to Indonesia and to ASEAN. He took up those roles in April 2010. His most recent positions in Wellington were Director for the Americas (2008-2010) and Director for Asia (2006-2008)..
He served as Ambassador to South Korea, accredited also to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (2002-06) and has also had diplomatic postings in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Washington DC, United States; and Suva, Fiji. He has been New Zealand's lead negotiator on climate change and a range of other environmental issues and has worked in the Prime Minister's Department.
David Taylor sekarang adalah Duta Besar Selandia Baru untuk Indonesia dan untuk ASEAN. Dia mulai memegang peran-peran tersebut pada bulan April 2010. Jabatan-jabatan terakhirnya di Welington adalah Direktur untuk Amerika (2008-2010) dan Direktur untuk Asia (2006-2008).
Dia pernah bertugas sebagai Duta Besar untuk Korea Selatan, terakreditasi juga untuk Korea Utara, dan juga telah memiliki penempatan-penempatan diplomatik di Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Washington DC, Amerika Serikat; dan Suva, Fiji. Dia pernah menjadi juru runding utama Selandia Baru untuk perubahan iklim dan berbagai isu lingkungan lainnya dan pernah bekerja di Departemen Perdana Menteri.
