Opening Keynote Address by Guest of Honor: Sustainable Development - How will the Vision Become a Reality?

Sustainable development is a national goal in Indonesia and for many other ASEAN countries - balancing economic growth, social inclusion, and environmental protection. Effective SDGs implementation requires revitalized international partnership, one of the major factors for the vision to become a reality. In this opening address, we will discuss the proposed global sustainable development goals; how can we together turn the vision for 2030 into reality; what steps must be taken to get there; and what will be your role as a global citizen.

Ir. Airlangga Hartarto, M.B.A., M.M.T. Ministry of Industry of Republic Indonesia


Special Guest Appearance: The Plan to Power the Planet


Panel Discussion: Moving Beyond Fossil Fuels

Fossil fuels are the main source of energy in the world, powering much of modern civilization as we know it, from transportation to industrial applications. But this paradigm cannot last forever. Indonesia is one of the few developing countries that can boast of reducing fiscal dependence on revenues from fossil fuel production while growing and diversifying both the economy and government revenue base. In this discussion, we explore some of the lessons learned from Indonesia and globally on the reduction of fiscal dependence on fossil fuels; the current state of play in the oil, gas and coal sectors in Indonesia; policies linked to economic diversification; and addressing the barriers that are in the way of renewable development.

Moderator: Dr. Ir. Heru Dewanto, M.Sc (M.Eng), IPU., President of PII & Chairman of AFEO


Maritime and Ports

Since the beginning of civilization, maritime transport for the exchange of goods has been the backbone of economic prosperity. An efficient and dependable maritime transport chain is paramount to the worldwide economy and an important underpinning element in the successful achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) on the UN 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. In this session, we will discuss how challenging is for the shipping industry to be sustainable. Which comes first – profit, society or environment? How is this industry maximizing operational performance and improvement through digitization? How are they attracting and retaining quality staff?

Coffee Break

16:20 Strategic Roles of Engineering Organisation(s) as Partner of Government to achieve SDG
Since 2015, when the United Nations established a set of shared goals and targets for achieving sustainable development around the world, the development community has been excited, energized but also a little bot wary. While the ambition contained within the Global Goals is high, the challange is vast. We do not yet know just how things will unfold, butone thing is for sure: the scale, scope and complexity of the economic and social transformation to come will be such that no one sector government, business, civil society or academia - will be able to manage the transformation alone. In this session, we will explore how organisations, with their capacity for increasing accountability and promoting participation, can play a critical partnership role with government agencies? How are building partnership models which are long lasting, scalable and transformative, and which create shared value?

Presentation: Logistics & Mobility – One of the Key Pillars of a Global Sustainable Development Strategy

Improved logistics connectivity and mobility are, consequently, powerful tools to improve prosperity and improve living standards in the next decade and beyond. Logistics and mobility are key drivers of sustainable economic growth, and a prerequisite and core component for sustainable development. In this session, we will discuss the logistics and mobility challenges and opportunities for urban and rural areas; and how can effective regional cooperation within neighboring countries to promote sustainable development be designed?

Dr. Bambang Susantono, Vice-President for Knowledge Management and Sustainable Development, Asian Development Bank (ADB)


Panel Discussion: How Connectivity Plays a Major Role in Achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)? 

Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) cut across all the SDGs and are a practical enabler for growth and development. Ensuring universal and affordable internet access for all is therefore vital to the achievement of the SDGs. In this discussion, we aim to explore what are the critical pathways for ICT to drive sustainable development and how digital infrastructure could open these pathways and accelerate achievements of SDGs.

ICT has the power to transform society. It plays a key role in each of the Sustainable Development Goals, providing the infrastructure needed to achieve them. ICT is empowering social businesses to make a real difference in communities around the world, securing a better future for the digital generations to come. We explore how ICT is driving social business and impacting society.
