IKN is one of the new growth centers that can also accelerate equitable development which must be jointly supported

Jakarta (Armfalcon.com) – Mata Garuda, as a forum for youth alumni of the Educational Fund Management Institution (LPDP) scholarship from the Government of Indonesia, together with PT Penjaminan Infrastruktur Indonesia (Persero) or PT PII encourage youth participation in the development of the National Capital City (IKN).

This step was taken by holding a discussion entitled “The Role of Youth as a Support for IKN to Support the Acceleration of Sustainable Development” in Jakarta, Saturday (8/4), which also involved PT Pembangunan Perumahan or PTPP.

On this occasion, as quoted from the official in Jakarta, Thursday, Chairman of Mata Garuda for the 2022-2024 period Leonardo Henry Gavaza said this discussion forum provided an opportunity for LPDP recipients and alumni to be involved in the development of IKN through the knowledge and skills they acquired through the LPDP scholarship program. .

“This event can also be a forum for discussing and sharing experiences with other youth about their role in the development of IKN,” said Leonardo.

With a composition of more than 53 percent of Indonesia’s total population, Leonardo assesses that youth have a very important role in supporting the sustainability of the government’s strategic projects, including the development of the IKN.

In order to be able to carry out this strategic role, the younger generation needs to build a good understanding of the policy of moving the capital city and the development of the IKN so that youth can contribute appropriately in ensuring the sustainability of the development of the IKN from various aspects.

In this discussion, IKN Deputy for Funding and Investment Authority Agung Wicaksono, PT PII Business Director Andre Permana, KPMG Advisory Infrastructure Director Deoly Rawendra, and LPDP Scholarship Director Dwi Larso discussed aspects of funding, infrastructure, sustainability and the role of youth in supporting the successful development of IKN.

Meanwhile, the Main Director of PT PII Wahid Sutopo conveyed, as one Special Mission Vehicles (SMV) Ministry of Finance, PT PII is committed to supporting the provision of infrastructure in IKN, particularly through guaranteeing Public Private Partnership (PPP) projects.

Most of the development needs in IKN will be built outside of financing the State Revenue and Expenditure Budget (APBN), thereby involving the private sector through innovative financing schemes, one of which is PPP, as well as providing facilities for the preparation and implementation of transactions for the utilization of State Property (BMN) Capital City Old Country.

“PT PII’s role and support for sustainable infrastructure development, especially for IKN as project and financing enabler This certainly requires the support of human resource capabilities (HR) in realizing infrastructure as an instrument of economic growth and equitable development,” said Wahid.

Therefore, Wahid hopes that the collaboration with Mata Garuda can formulate and implement the need for competent and competitive human resources in accordance with the needs in infrastructure development.

LPDP Scholarship Director Dwi Larso added, LPDP must collaborate a lot to create a united, advanced and prosperous Indonesia in 2045 by encouraging many locomotives of growth evenly. LPDP has started to do this by providing a larger portion of scholarships for youth outside Java.

“IKN is one of the new growth centers that can also accelerate equitable development which must be jointly supported,” said Dwi Larso.
