Do you think, Indonesia Maju 2045 program will be successful?

Well, Indonesia is one of the developing countries in Southeast Asia. The country, nicknamed the agrarian country, was formed on 17 August 1945 after being proclaimed by Ir. Soekarno, who became the first president of the Republic of Indonesia and Drs. Mohammad Hatta.

Then, Indonesia was built with the existence of four national pillars, namely Pancasila, NKRI, 1945 Constitution and Bhinneka Tunggal Ika.  In addition, Indonesia is also known as a country rich in natural resources, has many islands stretching from Sabang to Merauke and many tribes, cultures and languages.

It is because of this wealth of natural resources that Indonesia has been colonized for centuries. Even so, do Indonesian citizens feel happiness and prosperity in life?  Then why is Indonesia categorized as a developing country and not a developed country? Here is a brief review of the definition of a developing country and can Indonesia become a developed country by 2045? Is this a reality or a mirage.

Identifying Indonesia as a Developing Country

Before we discuss about Indonesia Maju 2045, developing countries is a term for countries in the world that have relatively low standards of living, underdeveloped industrial sectors, lower-middle Human Development Index scores, and low per capita income.

The reason why Indonesia is still categorized as a developing country is its high population growth rate. In fact, Indonesia once occupied the 4th position in the world with the most populous population. With such a high increase in population comes an increase in the need for clothing, shelter and food. This is the most dominating reason that Indonesia is a 

Of course, to manage this problem, the government must be clever in handling human resources that continue to decline. Moreover, the growth rate continues to increase, and this will also have an impact on poverty and hunger. If the number of births and growth increases, then the most important thing is to avoid shortages of clothing, food and shelter. The government must provide employment opportunities. 

Meanwhile, there are differences in lifestyle between developed and developing countries. A developed country is a country that enjoys a relatively high standard of living through high technology and an equitable economy. Meanwhile, developing countries are countries whose people have a moderate level of welfare or quality of life or are in development.

Will Indonesia Maju 2045 Program Success?

Be a developed country will not easy, so but for us is not impossible if one day Indonesia will become an “Indonesia Maju 2045”. Indonesia is a rich country, with a lot of natural resources, both animal and vegetable. Of course, this can be the main capital in improving the welfare of the people.

To become a developed country, of course, is not as easy as one might think. There are several stages that must be carefully planned. Then, increase the potential of resources. Meanwhile, to increase this potential, it must be realized, among others, by increasing nationalism, the quality of human resources, building infrastructure, and economic transformation.

In addition, all components of the nation (Central Government, Regional Government, business world, educational institutions and society) must work together and be committed to making Indonesia advanced. They must work together with the government to build an advanced Indonesia. 

This is in line with the value contained in Pancasila in the third point, which reads “Unity of Indonesia” of course with this unity that will create a better Indonesia. 

The State Budget (APBN)

In Indonesia Maju 2045, a key driver of the nation’s progress is the quality of its human resources. Thus, since 2019, the main focus of the State Budget (APBN) is the development of better human resources. The development of Indonesian human resources should focus on character, skill-orientated education and mastery of technology for each individual.

Indonesian education must be able to produce human resources who have nationalism and high integrity. Graduates of education, including higher education, are expected to be able to create jobs; connect with industry (link and match); and develop innovation and creativity by mastering technology. Non scholae sed vitae discimus (education must offer provisions for life, not just produce diplomas).

One of the main factors to create economic growth is the completeness of infrastructure facilities. Recognizing that this is a requirement to achieve an Indonesia Maju 2045, in 2014, the Indonesian government aggressively built the country’s infrastructure.

Infrastructure will boost the productivity of production factors; facilitate the flow of goods/services and people. It facilitates transport; and opens up isolated areas. Infrastructure will lead to equitable development and enhance Indonesia’s investment competitiveness.

Economic Growth

In Indonesia Maju 2045, to achieve good and sufficient economic growth, Indonesia needs to transform its economy to increase productivity and high added value in all sectors.

As for how to promote economic transformation by reinforcing priority economic sectors, enhancing export-oriented manufacturing industries, utilizing information technology, increasing the capacity of the people’s economy, enhancing creative industries and trying to love with domestic products. 

To grow the country’s economy, the government and society have to be focused on developing a variety of homegrown products. But, developing domestic products should also have added value and competitiveness so that they are competitive in domestic and international markets. Thus, all parts of the nation must build love for local products.

The policy towards an advanced Indonesia Maju 2045 needs to be well planned. If the Indonesian people fail to plan well, it is the same as planning for failure. Therefore, a strong commitment is needed to make good arrangements.

Because it is meaningless, if it only becomes a hope without a proper plan.  In additional, policies that have been well planned must be implemented consistently, structured, systematically and massively. 

Whoever will be the leader of this nation in the future must have a commitment to implement the Indonesia Maju 2045 program, together with all Indonesians. There is no success without hard, smart work and national unity.

Thus, Indonesia Maju 2045 will become a fact not a mirage, when it gets closer, we can immediately face it with the plans that have been launched.

So, the point is that if you are going to achieve an Indonesia Maju in 2045, then the unity and enhancement of the economic sector, natural resources and human resources must be addressed and improved.

Second, the government also continues to intensify downstream industrial policies which can not only increase job creation which results in national productivity but also provide maximum added value.

This is where the role of the green economy and downstream sectors plays as our window of opportunity to achieve progress, because Indonesia is very rich in natural resources, including mineral materials, plantation products, marine products, as well as new and renewable energy sources,” closed what Jokowi said on the same page.

The downstreaming that Indonesia wants to carry out, said the President, is downstreaming that carries out technology transfer, utilizes new and renewable energy sources, and minimizes environmental impacts.
