Conveying a Public Lecture to Alma mater in Papua, Student Has to Become Entrepreneurs – A Minister of Investment and Head of the Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM), Bahlil Lahadalia, conveyed a public lecture at his alma mater at the Port Numbay College of Economics (STIE), Papua, a campus from which he obtained his bachelor’s degree in 2002.

In the public lecture, Bahlil explained how important investment is to the current economic recovery. He said the realization of investment in the first semester of 2022 was recorded at IDR 584.6 trillion or 48.7 percent of the target set by President Joko Widodo, which was IDR 1,200 trillion.

Bahlil also explained that President Joko Widodo or Jokowi had given directions to build a centric Indonesia, namely from Aceh to Papua, not just Java-centric.

“The purpose of investment is to create jobs and those who maintain the sovereignty of this country in the era of the global economy are entrepreneurs,” he said in a written statement on Saturday, September 10, 2022.

For him, the direction of Indonesia’s policy going forward is to turn young people into entrepreneurs. So he appealed to students to become entrepreneurs after graduating from college.

Meanwhile, Assistant III for General Affairs and People’s Welfare at the Regional Secretariat of Papua Province, Derek Hegemur, expressed his gratitude for the attention and support of the Minister. Especially, said Derek, regarding investment and development of MSMEs.

Selpina, an undergraduate student majoring in management at STIE Port Numbay, admitted that she agrees with what the Minister of Investment said to encourage young people to become entrepreneurs. In addition to running college, Selpina said that she was also learning to be an entrepreneur by making noken handicrafts to be traded.

“I became an entrepreneur as well to help me pay for college and help my family,” said Selpina.

Selpina was one of the participants who attended the event of giving out the Business Identification Number (NIB) for individual Micro and Small Enterprises (UMK) organized by the Ministry of Investment or BKPM in Jayapura last week, August 30, 2022.
