Welcoming Remarks

Thank you for visiting the website of the Indonesia-Korea New Southern Policy Young Professionals Lab.

I am pleased that Foreign Policy Community of Indonesia (FPCI) – which is the largest foreign policy organization in Indonesia – is collaborating with the Korea Foundation (KF) – the institution mandated to conduct Republic of Korea’s public diplomacy – to organize Indonesia-Korea New Southern Policy Young Professionals Lab. This program is aimed to gather fresh ideas and perspectives from Indonesia’s young professionals from various field and serves as platform to engage Indonesia’s and Republic of Korea’s policymakers.

In my experience, policies can only be successful when suggestions from multiple-stakeholders are carefully considered throughout the ideation process to the implementation. In terms of the New Southern Policy, I believe it is imperative for the policymakers to consider the view of Indonesia's young professionals to make it successful. I trust this program would contribute to improve the New Southern Policy implementation in Indonesia as well as upgrade the Indonesia-Korea relations to the level we hope it to be.

I look forward to seeing you at Indonesia-Korea New Southern Policy Young Professionals Lab on May, 2021.

Salam,

Dr. Dino Patti Djalal,
Founder and Chairman of FPCI

Congratulatory Remarks

The Korea Foundation (KF) is honored to collaborate with Foreign Policy Community of Indonesia (FPCI) to organize the first Indonesia-Korea New Southern Policy Young Professionals Lab. We have joined hands in this endeavor in the belief that we must work together to face the challenges posed by COVID-19 and the rapidly changing international order.

To compensate for the shortfall in 2020 and advance to the next level of our bilateral relationship, it is important to avoid moving and acting blindly, without clear direction or steady guidance. Instead, we need to create a long-term strategy and form a common response to accelerating global challenges in order to adapt in a practical way to complex emerging situations. As a policy practitioner at the KF, Korea’s leading public diplomacy organization, and a policy analyst with long experience in academia, I know how crucial the roles of researchers and working-level officials are. We will only be able to make progress at this critical juncture with assistance from academia.

I ask for the continued support of all the participants in this year’s Young Professionals Lab for the success of the New Southern Policy. The KF will be with on your journey to explore realistic approaches to the future of ASEAN-ROK relations.

Thank you.
