Indonesian FM: Protection for Indonesian Citizens and Legal Entities is Indonesia’s Foreign Policy Priority

“Protection for Indonesian citizens and legalentities overseas is one of the priorities of Indonesian foreign policy which is in accordance with the vision and mission of the President of the Republic of Indonesia, which is also the vision of Foreign Affairs Ministry” said RI Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi when opening a Coordination Meeting for the Protection for Indonesian Citizens and Indonesian Legal Aid with the representatives of Citizen Services and other stakeholders at Nusantara Room, Foreign Affairs Ministry of the Republic of Indonesia (17/12).

President Joko Widodo and Vice President Jusuf Kalla have affirmed in their Nawa Ciptaagenda that one of the government’s priorities is Bringing back the country that protects the nation and provides security for citizens through Independent and active foreign policy”. This will bring hope and challenges for the protection for Indonesian citizens, especially overseas. 

Participants included members of the Foreign Affairs Ministry, Manpower Ministry, the National Board for the Placement and Protection of Indonesian Overseas Workers(BNP2TKI) and representatives of citizen services from Johor Bahru, Kuala Lumpur, Dubai, Den Haag and Tokyo.

Foreign Minister Retno also underscored the importance of mental revolution for Indonesian diplomats to prioritize service and to side with Indonesian citizens. 

According to Foreign Minister Retno, there are four public services that must be offered by every Indonesian diplomat. Offer friendly service, always smile despite workloads. Offer prompt and efficient service. Be accessible all the time and be accountable, withzero tolerance for corruption.

The Foreign Affairs Ministry has made numerous protection efforts including saving 43 Indonesian citizens from the death penalty this year and saving 90% of Indonesian citizens from conflict areas in Syria. However, there is still much to do, and many ways to improve. 

Presently, the number of Indonesian citizens overseas documented by Indonesian representatives overseas is 4.4 million (October 2014), most of them are Indonesian Overseas Workers (TKI). However, the real total of Indonesian citizens overseas could be 2 or 3 times the figure considering a lot of Indonesian citizens overseas do not report themselves to local Indonesian representatives. During 2014, the number of cases involving Indonesian citizens recorded by Foreign Affairs Ministry numbered15,345 cases.   

The Foreign Affairs Ministry along with BNP2TKI and several stakeholders launched anintegrated database for better protection for Indonesian citizens. With the integrated database, all related institutions will have identical data. Every incoming report to the hotline of the related institutions will be input to the database and can be accessed by all authorized institutions. Cases handled in Indonesia can be accessed by Indonesian representatives overseas and vice versa.

BNP2TKI Head, Nusron Wahid along with Foreign Minister Retno expressed his pride and pleasure on the launch of the integrated database. It is hoped that in the future, the protection of Indonesian citizens can be prompt and efficient. (Source: Dit. PWNI/Dit.Infomed/VKH)


Dr. Hassan Wirajuda: Jokowi adds Color to Indonesian Politics and Democracy

(Paris-Indonesian Embassy). In a seminar titled Indonesia’s New Government and the Country’s role in East Asia that was held by Indonesian Embassy in Paris at Ecole Nationale d’Administration (ENA) and Institut Français des Relations Internationales(IFRI) Paris, on November 27th and 28th2014, Dr. Hassan Wirajuda explained that Joko Widodo (Jokowi) as the President of Indonesia added color to politics and democracy in Indonesia.

Jokowi’s background is that he has no connection with the New Order regime, he started his business experience from zero, he has never been a leader of political party, and he once was major in a small town, Solo. Along with his simplicity and humbleness, the inspect-everything by himself work ethic, the strictness in making decisions, and his high persuasion skill, Jokowi is able to win the heart of the people to become the Indonesian President.

His strictness and courage in taking risks is proven when he had to raise the price of gas in an effort to reduce gas subsidiary even though he was had only been inaugurated one month as a President. President Jokowi already calculated that the burden of gas subsidiary of APBN had to be diverted to the development of infrastructure, electricity supply, health care and education. With this, it is expected that in 5-10 years, Indonesia’s economic growth might reach 7% in average per year.

Dr. Wirajuda, the former Indonesian Foreign Minister, also explained that the success of the recent 2014 election in a conducive and peaceful manner as well its participation rate that reaches 75% out of 185 million registered voters is a prove of Indonesia’s maturity in democracy. This strengthen Indonesia’s position that is currently positioned at number 16 of countries with the biggest economy in the world, in promoting democracy and Human Rights protection in international scale. Indonesia has also transformed from a democracy deficit to a country with a full pledged democracy where Islam, democracy and modernization are proven to be able to work together.

In its relation to ASEAN countries, Indonesia always tries to take initiatives to improve ASEAN collaborations. Currently ASEAN has transformed itself to be an organization with legality interactions and clearer purposes based on the 3 Pillars of collaboration which are Politics and Security, Economy, and Social and Culture. ASEAN always keeps its tradition of dialogues that has made the region stable and secure for 47 years. The vast improvement of ASEAN these days are within the Pillar of Economy with a short range target which is the form of ASEAN Economic Community(AEC) 2015.

Even so, the growth of ASEAN still seems not yet balanced in Pillars of Politics and Security where the improvement of democracy and Human Rights protection in few ASEAN countries are still problematic. The lack of emphasis on political and security collaboration is seen on the East Asia Summit (EAS) collaboration. In order to avoid the wrong perception, it is hoped that ASEAN and EAS to strengthen the concrete cooperation in politics and security especially in promoting democracy and human rights.

Both of the seminars went well and interactive. In the ENA seminar there were 65 participants while in the IFRI seminar there were 50 participants coming from different backgrounds such as French officials, International Organizations officials (OECD and IEA) in Paris, businessmen, scholars, students, researchers, diplomats, and people in general that share interest in Indonesia and Asia and few representatives of the Indo-Franco Association.

In a separate opportunity, Dr. Wirajuda also had the chance to hold a meeting with Mme Nathalie Loiseau, the Director of ENA, to talk about the possibility of cooperation between ENA and Indonesia’s School of Government and Public Policy (SGPP) as one of the form of strategic partnership cooperation of Indonesia – France in education.
