RI digitalizes trade, investment to spur economy amid pandemic

first_imgThe coronavirus pandemic has prompted Indonesia to digitalize various administrative processes to spur trade and investment amid a slowing economy and with social restrictions in place.For example, Indonesia is allowing Australian exporters to use an electronic certificate of origin in order to claim free trade agreement benefits for its exported products, according to Sally Deane, senior trade commissioner of the Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade).The move is seen as a positive step for the Indonesia-Australia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (IA-CEPA), which enters into force on July 5. Topics : “Australia and Indonesia were already making progress in this space [regulatory reform], but with COVID-19 we have seen some acceleration of these trends,” Deane said in a virtual discussion on Tuesday.Before the pandemic, Indonesia used electronic quarantine certificates for the trade of agricultural products with Australia, the Netherlands and New Zealand, according to the Indonesian Agriculture Quarantine Agency.Deane said that moving forward, both governments should further utilize digital channels to allow Indonesian and Australian business communities to participate in virtual business matching or product showcases at a time when international travel is restricted.“I think we can look at ways of using digital channels to bring our two business communities together,” Deane added.Under the CEPA agreement, Indonesian exports to Australia will get zero tariffs. Likewise, most of Australia’s exports, including live male cattle, frozen beef, dairy products and sugar, may enter Indonesia without any duties.center_img The Indonesian Trade Ministry expects the export of some Indonesian products to Australia, such as automotive products, timber, textiles, electronics and communication tools, to increase despite recording a US$3.2 billion trade deficit last year.Digitalization has also taken place on the investment front. The Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM) currently provides an online one-stop service platform, the Online Single Submission (OSS), to process business permit applications. The OSS was created to simplify the administrative process of starting a business in the country.BKPM head Bahlil Lahadalia also announced his plan to develop a web-based OSS application that can be managed not only by his office but also by regional administrations.In a hearing with the House of Representative on Tuesday, he proposed a budget of Rp 150 billion ($10.6 million) for software development and hardware distribution to provinces, cities and agencies across the country.“Right now, there are various applications to process permits, especially at the regional level,” Tina Talisa, the agency’s spokeswoman, told The Jakarta Post via text message on Wednesday. “Hence, we see the need to use a single application and integrate the app for the government and regional administrations.”Tina said the application was “one of the agency’s strategies to recover investment in 2021,” as the pandemic forced the agency to revise down this year’s investment target.Total investment realization in the first quarter grew 8 percent year-on-year to Rp 210.7 trillion. However, Indonesia booked an annual decline of 9.2 percent in foreign direct investment (FDI) in the same period, propelled by the coronavirus pandemic, which brought the global economy to a temporary halt.Red tape and unfavorable labor laws for businesses have weighed down Indonesia’s appeal to foreign investors. The country’s ranking in the World Bank’s ease of doing business index has stagnated at 73rd of 190 for the past two years.The incoming partnership may prompt Indonesia to further improve its investment climate, particularly in education, tourism and construction, according to Pingkan Audrine, a researcher at the Center for Indonesian Public Policies think tank, quoting data from the Trade Ministry.last_img read more

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Tennis News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.

Cricket News Rishabh Pant Should Drop Down From No.4: VVS Laxman’s Advice For Regaining Form

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Rishabh Pant has been struggling for form in international cricket in the last couple of series. In the West Indies tour, he managed just one fifty across all formats while in the two-match Twenty20 International series against South Africa, he had scores of 4 and 19. Pant has not managed to capitalise on the opportunities that were presented to him in both ODIs and T20Is. With Pant now the first-choice keeper across formats, the pressure on him to deliver is immense. VVS Laxman, the former India batsman who currently is on commentary duties on Star Sports, has suggested one simple idea for Pant to regain his form. “Pant should bat at number 5 and 6, where you have the license to go out and express yourself and at the moment he doesn’t know the right method of scoring runs at number 4. The nature of Rishabh Pant’s batting is that he plays aggressive shots…unfortunately at the international level he is not able to succeed at the number four position. Every player goes through this phase, his natural game is free flowing but suddenly he is not gaining the same results (which he did with Delhi franchise in the IPL),” Laxman said. In the three-match T20I series against West Indies, he managed scores of 0,4 and 65* while in the ODIs, he scored just 20 and 0. Even in the Tests, his highest score was 27 but his keeping was solid. Laxman said that every player goes through a rough patch at some point in their careers.Also Read | Rishabh Pant Shatters MS Dhoni’s Record In Style In Jamaica Test Vs West Indies”He is trying to evolve and trying to add different dimensions to his game by rotating the strike that we saw in the previous match but unfortunately, his shot selection at the start of the innings has not been great. There are other people to bat at number 4 like Hardik Pandya and Shreyas Iyer who are experienced and could play at that spot. He also has a lot of pressure as he is taking the place of MS Dhoni who has done a lot for Indian cricket, to get his confidence back the team management needs to let him go bat at number 5 or 6 and express himself,” Laxman said. Also Read | MS Dhoni Left Out For South Africa T20I Series – Right Or Wrong Move?With the three-match Twenty20 series ending 1-1, the focus now shifts to the Test matches which begin on October 2 in Vizag followed by matches in Pune and Ranchi.

Pasadena is goal once again for UW

first_imgAfter three straight appearances in the Rose Bowl and two straight wins in the Big Ten Championship game, it is not too much to say that expectations for Wisconsin football have been raised during the last three seasons.Take a look at the current team and the University of Wisconsin student body as a whole, and for many of them – besides any remaining fifth-year seniors – a bowl destination in Pasadena is all they have ever known in their time at UW.Add to that a team entering the season with a No. 23 AP ranking, and it appears the expectations will be back once again for the cardinal and white in 2013.Gone are the days when Wisconsin was allowed to have a down year every now and again as it prepared for its next meeting with Pasadena and the Rose Bowl.Gone are the days when Wisconsin struggled to get noticed by the weekly rankings or visited by ESPN’s College Gameday.Gone are the days when Wisconsin had to play second fiddle to many other top programs in the quest to recruit the best talent in the country.Still, despite their ascension into the upper echelon of the Big Ten and college football as a whole, the players and coaches will be the first to tell you that the successful program they have built during the last few years could just as easily be knocked right back down.“You look at three [Rose Bowls] in a row and you can forget everything in front of you. You can slip and fall and that’s how you lose ball games,” sophomore running back Melvin Gordon said.“You have to take it day-by-day and if those opportunities – the Big Ten Championship or the Rose Bowl – come around then we are going to take care of things.”However, finding its way to those opportunities might be easier said than done for the team as it enters the 2013 season.In a year that seems to be filled with more unknowns than in the past, first-year coach Gary Andersen has been left with the difficult task of continuing past success rather than turning around a sinking ship – a task more common for a first-year coach at a well-known football school.Looking at the loss of Doak Walker Award winner Montee Ball to the NFL and the summer battle between multiple quarterbacks for the starting job, continuing that success will be far from easy.But while the stage may be a bigger one and the players different, Andersen made it clear in his Monday press conference none of that fazes him. Coaching is coaching.“Once you get in a game, it’s standard operating procedure,” Andersen said. “I believe the staff is ready to go in the way we prepare and handle [games.] We’re ready.”If there was a perfect year for a new coach to take control at Wisconsin, this might be the year.With one of its weakest schedules in recent memory, Wisconsin will face only two teams ranked in the AP preseason top 25 (Ohio State and Northwestern), while avoiding perennial Big Ten heavyweights Michigan, Michigan State and Nebraska.One look at the schedule and it seems the fate of the season would rest on just one game: a Sept. 28 clash with No. 2 Ohio State, a game that may decide which team goes to the 2013 Big Ten Championship and perhaps the 2014 Rose Bowl and which team watches.This fall belongs to … White and GordonTaking over the reigns in the newest edition of the run-oriented Wisconsin offense, Gordon and senior running back James White will be faced with the daunting task of replacing now-Denver Broncos running back Montee Ball. But after years of tutelage learning from Ball, Gordon says they are ready.“With Montee gone, me and James just expect to step up,” Gordon said. “We know it is big shoes to fill, but we want to fill them. We’re just excited for the chance to see what we can do.”White, who ran for 1,052 yards as a freshman in 2010 and 806 yards last year, is poised to finally get his chance to start in 2013 after nearly stealing the job from John Clay as a freshman.Meanwhile, Gordon added an impressive 621 yards as the No. 3 running back last year, a statistic he will look to improve with a bigger share of the carries this fall.Learning a new defenseOn the defensive side of the ball, changes are on the way as well. With the addition of Dave Aranda as the new defensive coordinator, it’s out with the 4-3 scheme and in with the 3-4 defense. If Aranda’s time with Utah State is any indication, his version of the 3-4 defense has been proven to be effective. Last season, Utah State finished the season ranked eighth in scoring defense (15.4 points per game) and 15th in total defense.At the center of Aranda’s Wisconsin defense, senior Chris Borland has already found himself on a handful of award watch lists this preseason.The 5-foot-11 linebacker finished second for the Badgers with 104 tackles accumulated over the 2012 season and led the way against Stanford with a team-high nine tackles in Wisconsin’s 20-14 Rose Bowl loss. The passing gameOne of the biggest unknowns of the spring and summer – the quarterback situation – became a media frenzy in August with the heavily-hyped addition of redshirt sophomore Tanner McEvoy to the offense.After originally splitting time with both sixth-year senior Curt Phillips and redshirt sophomore Joel Stave, McEvoy quickly fell behind in the pecking order and now looks prepared to log some time on the field, not in the pocket, but running routes as a receiver.McEvoy, who played wide receiver in high school, is an athletic 6-foot-6, 10 inches taller than the diminutive No. 3 wide receiver redshirt junior Kenzel Doe.While Doe knows the addition of McEvoy to the receiving corps will likely mean fewer reps for him each game, the selfless Doe expressed excitement at the prospect of McEvoy bringing something new to the 2013 receiving corps.“We want to win,” Doe said. “So we’re not going to sit up here and say, ‘awe man he’s playing receiver and taking reps.’ We don’t really look at it like that … Whatever he can do to help us out. That’s better for us.”last_img read more
