TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - President Jokowi’s special staff of communications and spokesman, Fadjroel Rachman, congratulated Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati for her entry in Forbes magazine's 100 most influential people of 2019 and also the only Indonesian female to be nominated.
“Congratulations ibu Sri Mulyani as the only Indonesian female to be in Forbes’ World's 100 Most Powerful Women 2019,” said Fadjroel Rachman through his Instagram account @fadjroelrachman on Sunday, December 15.
He then stated his hopes of being able to see more Indonesian women to not only make it in the prestigious list but also be acknowledged worldwide and become Indonesia’s motor on national development. Fadjroel also recalled Sri Mulyani’s achievements in 2018 that saw the finance minister awarded as the best minister in the world award in Dubai’s world government summit.
Forbes Magazine ranks Sri Mulyani 76th out of 100 most influential women in the world due to Sri’s contribution to increasing the country’s tax reform through e-filing tax returns.
