People should be grateful for the condition.

"We are grateful that Indonesia, despite having experienced conflicts in the past, is now one of the most peaceful countries compared to other countries. We are not Iraq, we are not Syria, we are not Libya, and so on, " the vice president stated during a speech at the Senate Open Session of the Islamic University of Bandung (Unisba) in commemoration of its 60th anniversary on Saturday.

Many Islamic countries are currently experiencing a downturn in their country, leading to disturbing conditions. Nearly one third of Islamic countries in the world have experienced conflicts, the vice president noted.

A third, or almost 30 percent, of Islamic countries experience conflicts today. Of course, we are sad to see it. People are not helping each other, but killing each other. All kinds of conflicts occur in the Middle East," he remarked.

Therefore, Kalla hoped that Indonesia could continue to maintain peace despite the differences that exist today. If there are conflicts, such as in Iraq and Syria, the recovery period would require at least 30 years, Kalla added.

"Once again, we are grateful that Indonesia has peace, and people here do not fight with each other. The existence of differences of opinion is normal for a country," he revealed.

It was a bid to create a record as the first party to win elections twice in a row in the current reform era, its secretary general Hasto Kristiyanto said.

      Hasto stated in a meeting with local party board members and cadres in the district of Bekasi, West Java, on Saturday that the general chairperson, Megawati Soekarnoputri, had issued an order for the party victory in the parliamentary election as well as the victory of its cadre President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) in the presidential election.

      "After the general election in 1999, she noted that there has never been a political party that wins elections in a row. PDIP has an opportunity to break a record after winning the 2014 elections," he remarked.

      Hasto remarked that the executive order was clear and so cadres had no reason to be doubtful if this time would be the momentum for the party to make a history. He explained that winning both the parliamentary and presidential elections in 2019 would be very important so that development efforts in the future could be made more massively and effectively.

      Referring to the experience after the victory in the 2014 election, he revealed that Jokowi had to take around a year to conduct political consolidation to be able to run his government effectively because he failed to win the majority members of the parliament.

      Now that the number of parties supporting Jokowi and his running mate KH Ma'ruf Amin is bigger, Hasto said there is strong possibility that majority of the members of the parliament would be won and "so the government of Jokowi-Ma'ruf in the future would not only be strong in terms of people's legitimacy but also because the majority members of the parliament would support it."

      Hasto believed that with a strong government, effectiveness of development efforts as well as speed would be better than in the past four years of President Jokowi's government so far.

      Jokowi, as incumbent, would again meet Prabowo Subianto in the presidential election scheduled on April 17 next year. He would bid with Ma'ruf as his running mate, while Prabowo, who is a retired army general, has taken young businessman Sandiaga Uni as his running mate.

The ministry said in its press release the activity was organized in cooperation with the Oil Palm Plantation Fund Management Agency (BPDP-KS), the Bogor Institute of Agriculture and the University of Jambi.

          The activity, scheduled to be opened on Monday, would be held in Bogor for three days and Jambi in Sumatra for six days with participants that include consultants, researchers, environment activists and academicians from countries such as Australia, the Netherlands, Czech, Hungary, Britain, Italy, France, Poland, Russia, Slovakia and Spain.

          In the first three days, participants would be given lectures regarding policy, facts and discoveries, the palm oil business or organizational structure in general, as well as research and development. In the next five days, they will conduct field visits in the Jambi province and palm oil companies that have held the Sustainable Palm Oil Certificate (ISPO) and Roundtable on the Sustainable Palm Oil Certificate.

          During the visit, participants would also be given an opportunity to learn about local cultures with a hope they may have complete understanding of the palm oil industry from the local farmers' perspective. The participants are expected to be able to give the right information about the palm oil industry in Indonesia.

          In a number of European countries that become one of Indonesia's main palm oil markets, inaccurate information has spread relating to palm oil such as deforestation, carbon and water issues and a loss of biodiversity that have often been accepted by the public.

          Indonesia has seen the negative campaign about palm oil as a serious threat to the palm oil industry, which is one of the country's biggest export drivers and the key to economic improvement for years. Indonesia has been the world's biggest palm oil producer and exporter with a total market share of 58 percent.

The special account will be opened to ease the control and supervision of DHE that comes in and is put in the domestic financial system.

                  "It will be issued immediately. Hopefully, it will happen before December," he said at his office here on Friday.

                  The government and BI issued the 16th package of economic policies on Friday that includes a policy to obligate the placement of DHE in the domestic financial system. The DHE, which are obligated to be put in the system, are those from natural resource exploitation businesses, particularly those whose exports are valued higher than imports.

                  Warjiyo said the account was urgently needed to be in harmony with export data and DHE for exporters, the Directorate of Customs and Excise, Bank Indonesia and the Directorate of Tax to ensure effective supervision.

                  "If the bank is clear, exports are clear, tax office is clear and if eligible, they may get a tax incentive and so it is hoped businessmen, and especially exporters, would welcome it," he said.

                  Warjiyo said the special account could be in the form of a virtual or special account of DHE of natural resource commodities.

                  The government will provide a tax incentive on the interest of the term DHE deposit if it is converted into the rupiah. The conversion is not obligatory. The government will still give an incentive for the DHE that is in foreign currency, but the incentive is smaller than that for the DHE in the rupiah.

                  He said if the DHE were converted into rupiah, the tax for their interest would be only 7.5 percent for one month, five percent for three month and zero percent for placement in the term deposit for more than six months. If the DHE are in foreign currency, the incentive would be 10 percent for a one-month deposit, 7.5 percent for three months, 2.5 percent for six months and zero percent for more than six months.

                  According to BI data, the DHE that entered into the national financial system reached 93 percent of total exports but only 15 percent of them were converted into the rupiah. Before the issuance of the 16th policy package, the government had only obligated exporters to report their DHE and put it in the country without any obligation to put it into the national financial system.

The victims were about to be smuggled to Malaysia.

                      According him, four of the Indonesian migrant workers are toddlers. "We also secured evidence, including passports, cellphones, plane tickets, and victims' identity cards," he said.

                      On that occasion, the West Kalimantan Police Chief asked people who want to work abroad not to easily trust brokers. Police also called on people not to be easily lured with high salaries when working abroad.

                      "Because working abroad is not as easy as one might imagine. It's better in one's own country," he said.

It is aimed to strengthen the party's structure and support to its presidential and vice presidential candidates Jokowi-KH Ma'ruf Amin, Secretary General Hasto Kristiyanto stated, Friday.

                          "The national meeting of the Jokowi-Ma'ruf national campaign team has recently decided that all political parties supporting the Jokowi-Ma'ruf pair are obligated to conduct consolidation of their organizations and information campaign on successes that have been achieved by President Jokowi so far," he remarked.

                          He said following the recommendations of the meeting of the campaign team in Surabaya recently, all ranks and files of the PDIP will conduct consolidation and information campaign to solidify support for the Jokowi-Ma'ruf pair throughout the country. To this end, the PDIP team, led by Kristiyanto, will visit West Java and East Java this week, while PDIP Chairman Idham Samawi will travel to Yogyakarta and later Lampung, South Sumatra, and Jambi in Sumatra.

                          "The teams will meet regional party boards, heads of regions from the party and legislative members, as well as legislative candidates from all levels," he noted.

                          He said the "nationalist safari" road show that he led will take the land route from Jakarta through the Javanese northern coastal areas to conduct consolidation in West Java.

                          "I am also scheduled to inaugurate a PDIP branch office in Lamongan, East Java," he revealed.

                          Kristiyanto said the campaign tour was aimed at reviving the people's nationalist spirit for the unity and glory of Indonesia.

                          "People need to be reminded of the spirit of nationalism of the independence fighters and to also check implementation of the party's three pillars (structural, legislative and executive) to ensure victory in the election in 2019," he stated.

                          Indonesia plans to hold parliamentary and presidential elections simultaneously in April next year. In the presidential election, incumbent Jokowi, as incumbent with chief cleric Ma'ruf as his running mate, will compete against former army general Prabowo Subianto and his running mate businessman Sandiaga Uno.

Jokowi was accompanied by public works minister Basuki Hadimuljono during the visit.

                              The deputy for protocol, press and media of the Presidential Secretariat, Bey Machmudin, said in a release that the section he checked was on Kilometer 23 between Merauke and Sota in the district of Merauke.

                              "I want to personally check the situation in the field, as according to reports I received, much of the section from Merauke to Boven Digoel is muddy," he said.

                              The Merauke-Boven Digoel section stretches 422 kilometers long, while the Merauke-Sota section is 78 kilometers long and only three kilometers of it is yet to be completed.

                              "This part is indeed special and needs special treatment. We hope by the end of the month it will be completed," he said.

                              On the other hand, the 21-km Sota-Boven Digoel section is expected to be completed by the end of the year. The 422-km Merauke-Boven Digoel can now be covered in eight hours, as against weeks before the development.

                              The Trans-Papua is expected to be able to cut time in the distribution of goods, logistics and the people's movement.

                              "We hope the completion of the Trans-Papua would speed up the mobility of goods and people, as well as the distribution of logistics, and in turn, reduce the logistics and transportation cost. That is my idea," Jokowi said.

By doing so, it ended years of brain racking negotiations over control of one of the world largest copper and gold mines in Papua.

                                  Indonesia's state-owned miner Inalum hopes to wrap up the financial closure of a US$3.85 transaction for majority control of the local unit of U.S. mining giant Freeport McMoRan Inc . The Indonesian government and Freeport have reached an agreement that Inalum will control a 51.23 percent stake in PT Freeport Indonesia, ending more than nine years of negotiations over control of Grasberg, the world's second-biggest copper mine in Papua.

                                  The Sales and Purchase Agreement (SPA) was signed in September, 2018 by Inalum CEO Budi Gunadi, Freeport McMoran Inc. CEO Richard Adkerson, and Rio Tinto Indonesia. Three ministers who witnessed the SPA signing were Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) Minister Ignasius Jonan, SOE Minister Rini Soemarno, and Finance Minister Sri Mulyani.

                                  Inalum said it has raised US$4 billion (around Rp54.8 trillion) from the sales of government global bond to finance the deal. The government has said the deal would be closed after Inalum made the payment.

                                  "We have been ready for the final transaction with Freeport," head of Corporate Communication and Government Relations of PT Inalum, Rendy Witoelar told Antara news agency here on Friday.

                                  Rendy said the bond fund would be used to finance the transaction and the rest to refinance debts. The next steps are to settle documents related to mining business license (IUPK) with the energy and mineral resources Ministry and taxation and investment guarantee with the finance ministry.

                                  "The global bond was the first issued by Inalum. There was no assets given as security. That indicated confidence of investors in Inalum and Indonesian economy," Rendy said.

The bond is given the rating of Baa2 by Moody's and BBB by Fitch Ratings.

                                  The signing of Sales and Purchase Agreement (SPA) followed the head of agreement (HoA) inked by Inalum and Freeport McMoRan Inc on July 7, 2018. At that time, all parties agreed on the total divestment value of Freeport Indonesia worth US$3.85 billion.

                                  The figure divided from US$3.5 billion of Rio Tinto's participating interest (PI) at 40 percent shares in Freeport Indonesia and US$350 million for the 5.6 percent stake of Indocopper Investama, which was owned by Freeport McMoran Inc.

                                          "We hope we could control imports. The biggest home work is to cut deficit through an effective policy," Suhariyanto said here on Thursday.

                                          In addition, attempt to boost exports through improvement in investment climate will take time as it would need competitive products and diversification of products for exports. He said implementation of the policy to reduce imports in the past two months has begun to show result though not as expected.

                                          Narrowing trade deficit could reduce the current account deficit, but additional efforts are needed to redress the trade balance.

                                          "We hope there are other policies to cope with wide current account deficit especially related to service account," Suhariyanto.

                                          Earlier BPS recorded large imports of oil and gas contributing more to the trade deficit of US$1.8 billion in October 2018. Exports in October were valued at US$15.8 billion with imports at US$17.6 billion.

                                          In the first 10 months of 2018 the country's foreign trade had a total deficit of US$5.5 billion. Suhariyanto also said he hopes that high imports of non-oil/gas commodities in October 2018 would contribute to stronger economic performance in the last quarter of this year.

                                          "We hope that imports of capital goods may contribute to boosting economic growth in the last quarter of this year," he said.

                                          He said imports of non-oil/gas commodities could contribute to increase in household consumption and form gross fixed capital, which has been one of the main drivers of the country's economic growth. He said imports of industrial basic materials and capital goods could increase investment and boost industrial sector in the last quarter of this year.

The time capsule, containing the seven dreams of Indonesian children, is permanently placed in the monument and will only be opened in 2085.

                                              "Later, in 2085, it will be opened by our next generation (to see) if the seven big dreams will have been realized by then? Hence, this is not a common monument, but it is a monument of our dreams," President Jokowi noted in his speech as quoted in a press release.

                                              The dreams summed up from children across the country's 34 provinces that were written and placed in the time capsule, include firstly that the intelligence of Indonesian human resources would surpass that of other nations in the world. Secondly, the Indonesian community upholds pluralism and civility as well as religious and ethical values.

                                              Thirdly, Indonesia will be a center of education, technology, and world civilization, and fourthly, people and officials are free of corrupt behavior. The fifth dream is that infrastructure will be developed evenly across the country, while the sixth dream is Indonesia will become a self-reliant and influential country in the Asia-Pacific region, and the last is that Indonesia will become a barometer of the world's economic growth.

                                              Netizens hailed the launch of the monument and immediately gave various comments on social media. While praising the monument whose form resembles the Avengers headquarters, they also expressed hope that the dreams would come true. The launch was immediately welcomed by #Kapsul Harapan Indonesia (capsule of Indonesia's hopes) hashtag that soon became a trending topic, Antara learned.
