Indonesian diaspora and dual citizenship: The benefits

In August this year as in last year, the third Congress of the Indonesian Diaspora will be held in Jakarta, summoning flocks of overseas Indonesians, or the Indonesian diaspora, to return to the country dear to their hearts. Numbering over 8 million people in over 90 different countries, the diaspora comprises Indonesian citizens, former Indonesian citizens and their descendants. Embodying the Indonesian microcosm abroad, the diaspora is no less diverse and dynamic than their country of origin.

Mengapa mengadopsi pohon?

Mengubah peggunaan lahan: Jawa hanya mewaliki 7% dari lahan di Indonesia, tetapi 67% dari populasi penduduk Indonesia ada di Jawa, hanya sedikit hutan yang tersisa di wilayah ini. Sedikitnya hutan yang tersisa ini dapat menyebabkan hilangnya keanekaragaman hayati, kekeringan di musim kemarau dan banjir di wilayah Jabodetabek pada musim hujan.

Kemiskinan petani: Rata-rata petani di Tunggilis menanam 0,2 ha lahan dan memiliki pendapatan rumah tangga sekitar Rp 30.000/hari. Oleh sebab itu mereka tdak dapat menginvestasikan produktivitas pertanian mereka, karena lingkaran kemiskinan (lihat diagram), dan terkadang mengambil jalan lain dengan membuka area lahan baru untuk mengatasinya.

Dengan mengadopsi pohon Anda akan membantu kami untuk memutus rantai kemiskinan tersebut. Kami akan membantu petani mengembangkan pertanian produktif, yang tidak hanya membantu melindungi lingkungan lokal, tetapi juga memiliki potensi untuk meningkatkan pendapatan lebih dari dua kali lipat, membantu petani yang sebelumnya menanam satu jenis tanaman, dan hanya bergantung pada satu sumber pendapatan menjadi petani yang mengolah pertanian dan peternakan, dengan sumber pendapatan yang lebih bervariasi dan tidak lagi dibawah garis kemiskinan.

If the president says so, then the direction is clear," Marsudi said.

Lisa Virgiano, Tanpa Pamrih Promosikan Kuliner Indonesia ke Mancanegara

TERLAHIR dari keluarga petani, perempuan beranak tiga ini melakukan riset dan observasi kecil-kecilan ke pasar-pasar dan rumah makan sebagai apresiasi kulinernya. Kesimpulannya hasil panen petani kurang berkualitas dan hanya mengejar keun tungan.

Karena itu untuk mencapai kesejahteraan berarti harus ditingkatkan kualitas hasil pertaniannya. Setelah menyelesaikan pendidikannya di Swedia, perempuan kelahiran 5 September 1981 ini terjun ke sawah-sawah hampir di seluruh Indonesia. Tanpa didanai siapapun dan hanya berbekal satu tekad untuk menjadikan kesejahteraan para petani menjadi lebih baik.

View Point: The Indonesian diaspora: Itching to pitch in for RI

View Point: The Indonesian  diaspora: Itching to pitch in for RI

Julia Suryakusuma, Jakarta | Opinion | Wed, August 28 2013, 9:07 AM

While still in my mother's womb, I was already a member of the Indonesian diaspora. My parents' diplomatic postings meant a life moving between foreign countries, even while my mother was pregnant. And although I never heard the word "diaspora" when I was a kid, it was the only sort of life I knew until I reached my teens. 


So, when I sat in the assembly hall of the Jakarta Convention Center (JCC) on Aug. 19 for the opening ceremony of the second Congress of Indonesian Diaspora (CID), I felt a strong connection to the other delegates. There were almost 4,000 from 55 Indonesian Diaspora Network (IDN) branches in 26 countries, and the energy in the hall was amazing: positive, dynamic, full of enthusiasm, pride and love — especially when the national anthem "Indonesia Raya" was sung.

Indonesia Bisa

The co-founder of Mixi, Japan's largest social networking site with 80% market share and 30 million users, is an Indonesian.  So is the global head of IT network design at Disney.  So is the director of supply chain at Panda Express, the largest Chinese food chain in the US with 1,500 stores and $1.5 billion in revenue.  The South African ambassador to the US is of Indonesian descent – an ancestor, from Sulawesi, was sent as a slave to Cape Town 300 years ago and refused to change her Indonesian name.

The overseas diaspora – Indonesians citizens living and working abroad, those who have become foreign citizens or those people of Indonesian descent – are a talented group of Indonesians who have been an unrecognized and unconnected community.  Until now.
