JFCC Panel Discussion on Deradicalisation

Dear JFCC Members and Friends,

This year's terrorist attacks in Jakarta have renewed concerns about radical Islam in Indonesia and the spread of extremist ideologies fuelled by conflict against Islamic State in Syria.

Indonesia's mainstream religious organisations, such as Nahdlatul Ulama, are seeking to champion the country's traditionally tolerant teaching of Islam as a way of preventing extremist groups from winning more converts in the world's most populous Muslim-majority nation.

Please join the Jakarta Foreign Correspondents Club for a discussion of the evolving threat from terrorism in Indonesia and what deradicalisation campaigns can do to counter it, featuring:

  1. Komjen. Pol. Drs. H.M. Tito Karnavian, M.A., Ph.D., Chief of National Counter – Terrorism Agency
  2. KH. Said Aqil Siradj, General Chairman Nahdlatul Ulama Executive Board (Ketua Umum Tanfidziah PBNU)
  3. H. Yaqut Cholil Qoumas, General Chairman GP Ansor (the Nahdlatul Ulama Youth Movement)

JFCC Speaker Event:  Finance Minister Bambang Brodjonegoro

Dear Members and Friends,

As President Joko Widodo's finance minister, Bambang Brodjonegoro is under immense pressure to boost growth and raise revenue at a time when the world economy is faltering.
Last year, Southeast Asia's economy grew at the slowest pace since the 2009 crisis, but there were signs of a recovery in the fourth quarter, as the government at last made progress disbursing funds for public projects.

Declining tax revenues from oil, gas and other natural resources are weighing on the budget, and Brodjonegoro faces a challenge preventing the fiscal deficit from breaching a legal limit of 3 percent of gross domestic product. parliament is also putting obstacles in the way of his plan to raise revenue with a controversial tax amnesty.

JFCC Panel Discussion on LGBT issues in Indonesia, on Tuesday March 1, 8 AM, at the Grand Hyatt Hotel

Dear JFCC Members and Friends,

What began as a campaign against LGBT groups at university campuses has rapidly escalated into a wider debate about the rights of minorities in Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim-majority nation, which has traditionally taken pride in its reputation for diversity, tolerance and pluralism.

Under pressure from hardline groups, the authorities have shut down the world's only transgender Islamic boarding school in Yogyakarta, social media companies have been told to remove same-sex emojis, and government ministers have made some extraordinary claims about the threat LGBT groups pose to the nation's moral and religious values.

Please join the Jakarta Foreign Correspondents Club for a discussion of issues facing LGBT groups in Indonesia today, at a breakfast meeting
featuring:

1. Muhammad Nurkhoiron, Commission of Education and Counseling,
National Commission of Human Right (Komnas HAM)

Protection

Dear JFCC Members and Friends,

Indonesia's property prices are no longer rising at the double-digit pace seen when the market was awash with commodity dollars, but even so there are still opportunities, thanks to lower interest rates and loan-to-value rules, along with recent moves to liberalize the sector.

In January, President Joko Widodo's government revised regulations to allow foreigners to own houses for up to 80 years, up from 50 years previously, following a similar relaxation of ownership rules for high-end apartments worth at least $720,000, which foreigners can now own outright.

Please join the Jakarta Foreign Correspondents Club for a discussion of the challenges and opportunities facing Indonesia's property sector, featuring:

1. Michael Broomell, Managing Director, Colliers International Indonesia

2. Fabian Pascoal, Partner, Hanafiah Ponggawa & Partners Law Firm

3. Ignesjz Kemalawarta, Vice Chairman, Real Estate Indonesia

Day/date      : Wednesday, February 17, 2016

Time            : 10 AM - 12 PM

Venue          : Intercontinental Hotel (Jasmine Room on lower level)

Cost            :  Rp. 230,000 for journalist members (RSVP)

                     Rp. 250,000 for associate members (RSVP)

                     Rp. 270,000 for walk-ins (members)

                     Rp. 340,000 for non-members
