KEPRINEWS.co.id, JAKARTA – Indonesia is a plural country, a shared home for all human beings in it. Therefore, there is no dichotomy between the terms "majority" and "minority" in this country.
This statement was raised at the forum "Solidarity for Better Indonesia" at the Jakarta Congress Center on Friday evening on November 9, 2018.
"While we are still talking about the majority and the minority, then this means that our nationality is not yet unanimous," Moeldoko said, speaking from the political party.
Other lecturers were Dato & Sri Prof. Dr. Tahir from an economic point of view, as well as Minister of Industry Airlangga Hartarto from a socio-cultural site.
More than 1,200 representatives and merchants presented Moeldoko with the topic "Political Stability for Better Indonesia".
The TNI Commander for the period 2013-2015 explained that our economy could grow for the past 15 years because of political stability.
Moreover, ASEAN is considered to be the most stable region of the world, primarily because it is supported by stable political conditions in Indonesia. "
Moeldoko stressed that political stability had occurred because the leadership of Indonesia was stable. "If we can manage this, we will be part of the world's 10 most powerful economies by 2030. That's why President Jokowi has always called for us to be optimistic," he said.
Indonesian University Doctor of Administrative Sciences emphasizes the importance of the balance between stability and democracy. If the stability is excessive, the level of democracy will decrease.
Conversely, if the climate of democracy is excessive, political stability is lacking, the country becomes chaotic.
"Here is how different democracies and anarchism are very weak," said Moeldoko.
He explained that the Indonesian Index of Democracy currently at 72.11 (2017) is quite good, experiencing an increase over the previous index of 70.09.
The Democratic Index is influenced by the aspect of freedom of opinion at 78.75, the democratic institution 72.49 and the regeneration activities of political parties at 68.91.
As far as the index of religious harmony is concerned, the survey shows that for three consecutive years the number of religious harmony in Indonesia is "high". In 2017, the index of religious harmony is 72.2.
Political stability has a positive impact on the economic situation of Indonesia. Moeldoko said he had promised to open 10 million jobs before his administration.
"At present, Jokowi-JK's 4-year government has 8.7 million jobs," Moeldoko said.
Moreover, at the time of President Jokowi's administration, the poverty rate could fall to 9.8 percent or below one digit.
"President Jokowi is working hard to make our country work well in the future," he said.
Sustainability of management
From another point of view, Minister of Industry Airlangga Hartarto stressed the importance of sustainable leadership in maintaining economic stability and growth.
"Here plays an important role in leadership," said Airlangga, who enthusiastically explained the challenges of Indonesia at the time of the Industrial Revolution 4.0.
The Manpower Minister, who is also chairman of the Golkar party, stressed that after the 2019 elections, Indonesia was ready to "get off the ground". "All the differences are settled in the ballot box, moving towards advanced Indonesia amidst the industrial revolution," Airlangga said.
Tahir stressed that if such conditions continue to be maintained, then in five years Indonesia will become a very strong country.
"We must be grateful that we can be born and live in this promising Indonesia," said the man who completed his dissertation at Gajah Mada University.
The head of the Mayapad group, also known as the philanthropist, stressed that the "Solidarity for Better Indonesia" event will take place around various large cities in Indonesia such as Surabaya and Medan.
"The goal is to invite entrepreneurs to the convenience of this country, everything in our hands is crucial," Tahir said.
This successful entrepreneur who has begun his life from the poor family in Surabaya has stressed that we must bring an optimistic spirit.
"This country is strong and kind, and we are advancing this country to better Indonesia," he said.
In addition to Tahir, Moeldoko and Airlangga Hartarto, the forum "Solidarity for Indonesia is Better" was also attended by entrepreneurs who were also Chairman of Perinda Hary Tanoesoedibjo, Murday Poo and Vice-President of the Commission VI. Senate Ganinduta Dito.
