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.

Petition to Support the Continuation of Garuda Indonesia Flight GA720 and GA721

After nearly seven years of absence in the air space of Queensland, Australia, Garuda Indonesia (GA) began back flapping its wings in mid 2013. We are all aware that it is not easy to take back the name of GA in the very competitive airlines business which are increasingly tight. We also have witnessed that GA has been making a great effort to penetrate the market and promote its business at various levels of Indonesian and and Australian community via business, social, cultural, educational, and sport networks for the last 14 months. As a result, GA has started back flying high and is now increasingly becoming the best airline for many people who will travel to and from Brisbane, Australia.

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.
