  • TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - President Joko Widodo or Jokowi said to head towards Golden Indonesia in 2045 there were several steps to be passed. Those steps should be taken from now so Indonesia could be a part of big 5 of the world economy.

    “The first step to golden Indonesia is the economic sector; improving the infrastructure so we could compete with other countries,” said Jokowi on Thursday, May 24, in Majalengka, West Java.

    Jokowi explained, Indonesia as a big country should be able to utilize its resources, either natural resources or human resources. Therefore, to improve the economy, the government's focus is to build the infrastructure. “Our focus this time is to improve infrastructure to compete with other countries,” he said, adding that it was the main point to be improved. 

    Besides infrastructure problem, uttered Jokowi, the next step was human resources investment. He reasoned that with the human resource investment, the country could move forward. “The second stage is by investing on human resources, like upgrading all the young people’s skill, whether in university, engineering or other sectors,” he said.

    With all those steps, according to President Jokowi, Indonesia could be part of big 5 of the world economy in 2045 later.
