            [post_content] => Jakarta. The government hopes to implement new policies in coming months to enhance Indonesian football, with several public institutions expected to contribute substantial funds to that end.

President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo held a special meeting in January to discuss plans on how to boost the country's most popular sport, declaring four main pillars of development.

"In a meeting in January, we agreed to create a road map for national football development under President Jokowi's direction," Coordinating Human Development and Cultural Affairs Minister Puan Maharani said in Jakarta on Monday (17/04).

Puan revealed the creation of a special task force that will draft presidential instructions to provide a legal framework as the government seeks to develop football in the country.

"We're currently drafting presidential decrees and instructions to help guide football development in Indonesia," she said.

Though FIFA  the world's football governing body  has prohibited government interference, Sports Ministry secretary general Gatot Dewa Broto said the coming instructions are only meant to aid the Indonesian Football Association (PSSI).

"We will provide guidelines for government agencies responsible for promoting and developing football. The instructions will serve to spread cooperation among different institutions," Gatot said.

"Especially in terms of adequate infrastructure. Clubs across the archipelago lack proper stadiums [...] we think the government can help solve that problem," he said.

Most football stadiums used by elite clubs in the country are in fact owned by regional or provincial governments, not by the clubs themselves.

Gatot also said the Administrative and Bureaucratic Reform Ministry can help footballers land government jobs after they retire from the sport.

            [post_content] => Jakarta. Saudi Arabia's King Salman has embraced the "selfie", taking part in a number of light-hearted self-shot pictures and videos during his tour of Asia that contrast with the pomp and formality of most of the octogenarian monarch's trips abroad.

In the first days of a lengthy regional tour, the king has appeared with top-ranking officials in Indonesia and Malaysia in pictures and clips that have been shared online millions of times.

Indonesian President Joko Widodo shared on Facebook a video of himself dining with the king at the presidential palace in Bogor, near the capital Jakarta.

In the video, both men comment on the visit, the first to Indonesia by a Saudi king in nearly five decades, and give viewers a rare peek into a state event.

As Widodo holds what appears to be a phone camera, the king is seen dining on soup and using gold-coloured cutlery before commenting in Arabic on his 12-day visit to Indonesia, the longest leg of his month-long tour of Asia.

"I'm very happy to be here in Indonesia and with the Indonesian people," King Salman says to the camera, as an interpreter sitting behind him translates into Bahasa Indonesia.

The king was also photographed posing for a selfie with former president Megawati Sukarnoputri and her daughter Puan Maharani, who is a member of Widodo's cabinet.

Indonesia has a high concentration of Facebook and Twitter users, and selfies are a mainstay of social media in the world's fourth most populous country.

Earlier this week, Salman was seen in a selfie posted on Twitter with Prime Minister Najib Razak of Malaysia, during the first stop on his sweep across Asia.

Though rare, Salman has made occasional appearances on social media before, including when he posed last year for a selfie in Qatar with a teen who survived cancer.

The king is travelling with an entourage of several hundred people and nearly 500 tonnes of luggage, including two gold-coloured escalators.

After Jakarta, the delegation is set to take a break in the resort island of Bali, where up to four hotels and 300 luxury cars have been booked for more than a week, according to local police and a tour agency association.

Salman is also set to visit Brunei, China, Japan, the Maldives and Jordan.

            [post_content] => Jakarta. Coordinating Human Development and Cultural Affairs Minister, Puan Maharani, proposed that village-based businesses should be prioritized, because they have a strong potential to boost the local economy.

She recommended the continuation of the "one village, one product" program, where each village should strive to produce a single specialized product and makes a living from it.

"The 'one village, one product' program will spark strategic economic development from the villages to districts, and even to the whole country," Puan said while at a meeting at the ministry's office in Jakarta on Oct. 19.

The meeting, attended by ministers, tackled village development programs and issues of funding.

According to Puan, this year's funding scheme for villages is focused mainly on economic empowerment instead of infrastructure development.

"The scheme aims to eradicate poverty, train human resources and enhance the capacity of village government officials," she added.

Reportedly there were 74,754 villages that received the funds in installments.

Based on the medium-term national development plan, known as RPJMN, the government has targeted to upgrade 5,000 underdeveloped villages into developing villages. It also aims to develop 2,000 developing villages to become self sustaining, which will not require future funding.

"We will monitor progress based on our road map. This includes village development, minimum service standards for village government and empowerment of villagers," Puan said.

            [post_content] => Jakarta. After almost two decades of stagnation, the Coordinating Human Development and Cultural Affairs Minister Puan Maharani urged the National Population and Family Planning Board, or BKKBN, to step up their game in promoting family planning initiatives.

BKKBN is in charge of running Indonesia's family planning program and their main objective is to encourage Indonesian families to have only two children at most, in order to maintain financial stability.

"BKKBN should make a breakthrough. The program is not just about lowering the fertility rate, but also to support development of family health and welfare," Puan said at the World Contraception Day 2016 event in Malang, East Java, in September.

According to her, the prevalence of readily available contraceptives in Indonesia has not improved in the past 15 years. Additionally, 98 percent of couples who are of a reproductive age know about the family planning program, but only 57 percent have signed up.

She suggested that BKKBN come up with innovative ways to raise awareness about family planning, especially to young mothers.

BKKBN should also re-evaluate the distribution system for contraceptive products to make sure they reach the right target audience.

Another program is to monitor the "Kampung KB," a family planning program for those living in rural areas, or where intensive education about family planning programs and reproductive health care services is needed.

"There has to be effective education, counseling and advocacy containing clear messages about family planning. Make the people realize its importance," Puan said.

She also stated that family planning contributes to the success of the United Nation's Millennium Development Goals 2016, or MDGs  targets to address extreme poverty and inequality around the world by 2016  because it is believed to have helped reduce Indonesia's child mortality rate and improve maternal health.

According to data from the Central Statistic Agency, or BPS, Indonesia's population has jumped from 203 million in 1998 to 249.9 million in 2013. The agency expects Indonesia's population to reach 271 million by 2020, and nearly touch the 300 million mark in 2030.

Population growth has been identified by the government as one of the main hurdles for families to attain adequate welfare and to overcome poverty.

Indonesians should maximize production and innovation of medical equipment instead of relying on imports, the Coordinating Human Development and Cultural Affairs Minister Puan Maharani said during the opening of Health Development and Medical Supplies Production exhibition hosted by the Ministry of Health at JIExpo in Kemayoran, Jakarta on Friday (18/11).

According to Puan, almost 90 percent of equipment and medicines in Indonesia are imported.

"It would be wonderful if our health care services could be equipped with locally made supplies. We are already capable of innovation and can independently produce our own," Puan said.

Since the government has set up programs to make health care more inclusive, it means that a larger quantity of supplies are needed to make sure patients receive adequate treatment.

Puan also mentioned the growth of the local medical industry, which has seen the increase the number of manufacturers of health care equipment and medicine increase from 193 to 211 this year.

Diversification of the supplies also shows that there is good progress as there are now 261 types of supplies compared to 255 last year.

Not only do the government and medical industries contribute to the growing heath care industry locally, but university students and research institutions also partake in developing the profession. At the exhibition, university students and researchers also exhibited their medical innovations.

Among the products were bone graft "GamaCHA" and hydrocephalus therapy equipment "INA Shunt" by Gadjah Mada University students; orthopedic implants by Agency for the Assessment and Application of Technology, or BPPT; patient monitor and prosthetic legs by Bandung Institute of Technology students; and  viscometer and dental curing lights by University of Indonesia students.

"Let us join hands to be a healthy nation by supporting the medical industry and local production," Puan concluded.

Universities must take the lead in President Joko Widodo's so-called "Mental Revolution" program as an "incubator" for the country's future leaders, Coordinating Minister for Human Development and Cultural Affairs Puan Maharani said during a public lecture at ITB, the Bandung Institute of Technology, on Wednesday (16/11).

According to the minister, university students hold the key to Indonesia's future. As agents of change, they have the ability to create a new progress-oriented society — the ultimate goal of the Mental Revolution movement.

"Mental Revolution will create a new, confident, optimistic and creative Indonesia," Puan said.

Puan's lecture, attended by government and university representatives, was entitled "The Role of Universities in Implementing Mental Revolution." Puan had delivered the same speech at Brawijaya University in Malang in September.

The core values of Mental Revolution are integrity, excellent work ethics and mutual cooperation — qualities that Puan said all university students should adhere to.

Mental Revolution should provide a cure to Indonesia's identity crisis, as well as the rampant dishonesty and irresponsible behaviors that have plagued the nation, she added.

President Joko Widodo also believes Mental Revolution will improve the country's economic productivity, with Indonesia still lagging far behind other countries in the field despite consulting firm Pricewaterhouse Coopers' prediction that it will be a genuine global economic power by 2030.

Indonesian universities already follow the "Tri Dharma" principles, which define them as not only a place to study or conduct research, but also as a servant of the community. The values Mental Revolution prescribes should not be too alien to them, Minister Puan said.

Puan made some suggestions, including keeping homes clean, washing hands before eating, ensuring water is clean and keeping children away from second-hand smoke. She also suggested eating more vegetables and adding more sleep and exercise to daily routines.

"Those steps can have immense long-term impacts on our family, which means that we have also helped the government to improve the quality of living for a healthy and prosperous society," she said.

A healthy lifestyle is part of the country's "mental revolution" she said, as it shows society's enthusiasm in creating better habits and well-being. Improving overall health is integral to realizing a "Clean Indonesia," part of the mental revolution ideal.

"With the Healthy Society Movement, we hope that there will be less people who go to the hospital because they are already healthy," she said.

The Health Society Movement aims to improve preventative measures which lessens the strain on the country's health systems, as advocated by President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo.

The movement includes programs from several ministries, including a no-slum program by the Ministry of Public Works, the Ministry of Youth and Sports' plans to improve sporting grounds and facilities and efforts by the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries to increase fish consumption.

"With cooperation between the central government, local governments, and society as a whole, the movement will bring concrete advantages to Indonesia," Puan said.

She visited several other locations to promote the Healthy Society Movement. These included Batam in Riau, Bogor in West Java, West Sumatra's Padang Pariaman, Jambi, Pandeglang in Banten, Pare-Pare, South Sulawesi, Purbalingga in Central Java and Surabaya and Madiun in East Java.

Indonesians need to dig deeper into their maritime history to determine what is required for the country to become a global maritime power once more, Coordinating for Human Development and Cultural Affairs Minister Puan Maharani said in her speech at the National History Conference in Jakarta on Monday (07/11).

The theme for this year's conference is "Maritime Culture and the Nation's Dynamics in a Historical Perspective."

Puan said a lack of awareness of Indonesian history, particularly its maritime history, has led to "fading nationalism" among Indonesians and a growing ignorance of the country's developmental achievements.

She said the conference was the perfect opportunity to remind Indonesians of the desperate need for President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo's much-vaunted Mental Revolution, which can be achieved by implementing lessons learned from the nation's long history as a regional power.

"History should play a greater role in our lives. It should not be just something we talk about. Its lessons should be reflected in people's behavior," Puan said.

She added that people should delve into history to take lessons from their past actions so they can improve their decision-making.

The minister said an understanding of history will help Indonesia reach its goal of becoming the prosperous maritime nation it once was.

In her speech, Puan spoke in detail of Indonesia's glory days as a maritime power when it was known as the Sriwijaya Kingdom and later, the Majapahit Empire.

She also cited former President Sukarno's fiery speech during the first National Maritime Conference in 1963, when he exhorted his fellow citizens to relive the days when Indonesia was a powerful maritime nation.

"We need to respond to a call like that with real actions, if we want to support the government's program to turn Indonesia into a global maritime axis," Puan said.

The government's cashless payment system is aimed at improving the welfare of local communities, Coordinating Human Development and Cultural Affairs Minister Puan Maharani said during the launch of 15 so-called e-warung outlets in Banyumanik, Semarang, Central Java, on Friday (28/10).

The e-warungs, which are not only for everyday transactions, enable the government to more efficiently distribute social assistance, ensuring that it reaches the poor.

"All forms of aid are distributed in cashless form. This enables the government to monitor whether the aid reaches the right target," Puan said.

The newly launched e-warung outlets serve recipients of government benefits under the Family of Hope Program (PKH) and Joint Business Group (KUBE). The financial aid will be transferred directly to recipients' bank accounts and they can use special cards, or e-wallets, to shop at e-warung outlets.

According to the minister, e-warungs are also a form of cooperation between society and the government to eradicate poverty.

"It is about how we join hands and put forward the values of integrity, hard work and mutual cooperation to solve our problems independently," she said.

These values are in line with the government's Mental Revolution, aimed at encouraging Indonesians to be more progress-oriented.

In addition, e-warungs are a means of attaining financial inclusion, because they give more people access to banking facilities.

Local communities also benefit from e-warungs because they provide lower prices for daily goods.

Banyumanik resident Sumiatri said she preferred buying rice at e-warungs because it only costs Rp 9,500 (70 US cents) per kilogram, compared to other shops, where it could cost more than Rp 10,000 per kilogram.

During the same event, Puan also directly handed out state assistance to the people of Banyumanik under different social programs, such as the PKH, KUBE, Livable Home Living Assistance (Rutilahu), Rice Social Assistance (Rastra), Healthy Society Movement (Germas) and Indonesia Smart Card (KIP).

She also handed out financial aid on behalf of the Mental Revolution Secretariat.
