“How to keep a fast growing economy green?”
H.E. Arif Havas Oegroseno, Ambassador of Indonesia to the Kingdom of Belgium,
the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg and the European Union
Asia is rising rapidly amidst crisis in Europe and the United States. The global economic's centre gravity is once again shifting to Asia. The Asian Development Bank talks about the return of the Asian Century in the middle of this century. Standard Chartered published a special report on 15 November 2010 entitled "The Super-Cycle Report". which contends that "the balance of the world economy will reverse, with the combined share of the US, the EU and Japan shrinking from 72% in 2000 to 29% in 2030". Indonesia will be the region's star performer; the 28th largest economy in 2000, it may be the world's 10th largest in 2020 and fifth-largest in 2030 with $9.3 trillion dollar GDP". With current growth of 6.5 percent, such prediction could indeed be the reality of the year 2030 for Indonesia. One of the critical question would be whether such growth is a growth of brown economy or green economy. Key is whether such growth is at the expense of the environment or is a growth that is sustainable and does improve human well being and social equity. These are valid questions to pose on how Indonesia, the archipelago of 17508 islands, home to 240 million people and the world's richest biodiversity, humming on 6.5 percent growth can keep its economy green.
The lecture will be introduced by Prof. Dr. Jo Swinnen, Director of Licos Centre for Institutions & Economic Performances, and will be concluded by an open question and answer session.
Wednesday, 10 October from 11 a.m. till 12.15 p.m.

The lecture will be in English

PERSONALS - Antique sales for social and cultural goal

Thanks to the generosity of some people here in Yogya can we again, send you a list with valuable objects from the Indonesia cultural world. 

Again the profit of the sales of these objects will go to the support of the children's and toy museum Kolong Tangga and the development of the museum's workshop in villages and orphanages. The museum financial problem is still far from being solutioned, we still have sleepless night about the empty museum kassa. Thanks to your previous spontaneous buying last time, we could prevent certain disasters. 

Unfortunately we have still too much problems so we hope that you might receive our second sales-news, with the same enthusiasm as the first time. Sorry for the disturbance and thank you for giving time to read our e-mail. May we draw your attention that these objects presented in this e-mail are of collector's quality and that some are unique items.

With kind regards from the museum group.
