After the enactment of Joko Widodo and K.H Ma’aruf Amin as Elected President and Vice President was elected by the KPU, many media competed to inform the Indonesian 5-year historic phenomenon. One of the highlights is when President-elect Joko Widodo quoted on his official Facebook fanspage on July 12 regarding one of the Japanese Nikkei Asian Review media that made it a cover in the business magazine. In the news coverage of the magazine, Jokowi explained the direction of his policy and vision for the next five years government.
Jokowi said, the main coverage of the July 8-14 issue of the Nikkei Asian Review contained his optimism in the government period of the next five years. “In the next five years, the government will focus on completing what we have started: completing massive infrastructure work that is still ongoing and the development of Indonesian human resources,” Jokowi wrote.
In the news coverage of the magazine, Jokowi expressed his confidence in the governance of Indonesia’s economic life. “Our target is to become the Top 10 of the World in 2030, and the top four in 2045,” Jokowi told the Nikkei Asian Review.
The magazine also raised Jokowi’s efforts for five years in power and his promise for the next five years to make Indonesia enter the golden age.
And one of the most prominent developments in the economy in the 2014-2019 period in Indonesia is the emergence of the technology sector. “This country has produced four unicorns – startups with ratings of more than US $ 1 billion.”
The article also reviews criticism from a number of organizations and opposition groups over economic policies for the past five years. “Now he is no longer constrained by the political pressure of the elections – the Indonesian constitution limits the president for two periods – Widodo will be more free in carrying out the steps.”
Not this time, the former Governor of DKI Jakarta is the cover of a famous foreign magazine. At the start of the 2014 presidential election, Jokowi’s face graced the cover of Time magazine. The magazine headline from the United States is titled ‘A New Hope’.
Not long ago, Jokowi was also the cover of the May 2019 lifestyle edition of Saudi Arabia, Arrajol.
