FPCI Public Discussion on Indonesia’s 6-Month Economic and Political Review 2021

Despite the disruptions it entails, COVID-19 has brought about a great opportunity for reforms in many sectors. However, Indonesia seems to be slow in adapting to these changes. The manufacturing sector may have positive expansion since October 2020, but Indonesia’s economy should not rely only on that sector alone to reach a 4.5 percent growth at the end of 2021 and above 5.0 percent in 2022 as planned. Indonesia also witnessed several political dynamics such as the launch of a sovereign wealth fund and changes in the cabinet’s nomenclature that raised many questions.

Welcoming 2021: Building Strategic Approach towards Achieving Inter-religious Peace

2020 might be one of the most challenging years in decades. As the world was not only struggling with the COVID-19 pandemic, but also the rising bigotry, hate speech, and extremism. From suicide bombing in Quetta, Pakistan, the burning of Qur’an by far-right activists in Sweden, the Islamist terrorist stabbings in Nice, France to the recent mass shooting in Vienna, Austria, and another mass killing in the village of Koshebe, Nigeria, we have not seen any progress in the fight against hate speech, bigotry, terrorism, and extremism.
