IPB Lecturers and Other Academics Open Up About the Benefits of Indonesia Becoming Host of the 2023 ASEAN Summit
Jakarta — Dean of the Faculty of Economics and Management IPB Prof. Dr Nunung Nuryartono is optimistic that the Government will successfully organize the ASEAN Summit on 9-11 May 2023 in Labuan Bajo, East Nusa Tenggara. The success of the implementation will also have an economic impact.
Indonesia is hosting the 2023 ASEAN Summit with the theme ASEAN Matters: Epicentrum of Growth, showing that ASEAN is becoming an economic region that can boost the economy.
“Overall, 8% of the world’s population in Asean countries is an attractive market for the products they produce and drives the world economy,” explained Prof. Dr. Nunung Nuryartono when contacted by the media.
By choosing Indonesia, he also said that this would increase the selling power of investment in Indonesia.
“Indonesia’s success in leading ASEAN can be seen from its success at the G20, by bringing a stable ASEAN region into a center of economic growth,” he explained.
Labuan Bajo, which was chosen to host the 2023 ASEAN Summit, will become a mouthpiece for new investment in the world of tourism in Indonesia.
“By choosing Labuan Bajo, Indonesia has many tourist destinations. This opens the world’s eyes that many destinations in Indonesia have special areas to be encouraged to become investment centers in Indonesia,” he concluded.
In line with Prof. Nunung, International Relations (HI) Specialist at Gadjah Mada University, Yogyakarta, Randy Wirasta Nandyatama, Ph.D. even believe this momentum will restore the centrality of Asean.
“Indonesia’s chairmanship position at the ASEAN Summit is an effort to restore the centrality of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations to return to being a forum for resolving regional problems,” he said.
