Join this online dialogue held by Australia Awards in Indonesia (AAI) on Tuesday, 15 December 2020 at 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM WIT (or 08:00 AM – 10:30 AM Jakarta time).
COVID-19 has led to a dramatic change of human life worldwide and presents an unprecedented challenge to public health. The pandemic brings social and economic disruption to countries all over the world and leads the global economy into a severe contraction. Indonesia, as a country with a heavy reliance on global trade, tourism and commodity exports, is severely impacted. The government claims that creative industries, have created non-conservative jobs during the pandemic and this sector could be the driving force of Indonesia’s economic growth going forward.
When most provinces in Indonesia experience negative growth, Papua still have an increase in the economic sector at 4.52%. However, this does not mean that this province do not struggle with the financial impact of COVID-19. Therefore, it is deemed necessary to discuss the significant role of creative industries in this province. AAI will hold an online forum titled “Creative Economy in Boosting Economic Growth During Pandemic in Papua” which will involve many speakers with relevant expertise in this area.
Speakers of the event:
The online dialogue will be moderated by Johan Albert Piter Ginuny, news anchor as well as an alumnus of Murdoch University, and there will be a message from the Australian Embassy and Provincial Government of Papua. This event will be conducted in Bahasa Indonesia.
Register here before 12 December 2020.
