Jakarta (ANTARA) - Governor of Bank Indonesia (BI) Perry Warjiyo presented four programs for the Indonesian Economist Association (ISEI) to implement during a three-year period to support national economic growth.

"In the next three years, we must strengthen ISEI's role in contributing to our national economy through academic and community service," Warjiyo noted during an online public discussion, here on Friday.

Warjiyo remarked that the first program for the ISEI to implement is to bolster the association’s synergy in providing support to expedite economic recovery.

The governor deems ISEI's contribution to several central and regional policies as vital to economic recovery. It encompasses promoting the inclusiveness of MSMEs and boosting regional economies. Moreover, the ISEI pushes for the realization of macro, structural, and monetary stability.

"The second program is how the ISEI can provide innovation to drive the implementation of structural reform policies, so that Indonesia is on the right path and headed towards becoming Indonesia Maju (a developed country)," Warjiyo, concurrently the chairman of ISEI, emphasized.

The BI governor urged the ISEI to frame structural reform policies to boost productivity, investment, and quality of human resources, as well as create economic efficiency for restoring the country’s economic growth.

Warjiyo pressed for the development of natural-resources-based downstream industries to enhance productivity while contributing to economic growth and addressing economic inequality among regions.

"Another sector that needs structural reform is tourism and digital finance that are the swiftest in supporting economic growth. Their economic trajectory moves stronger with natural resource productivity," Warjiyo remarked.

The third program for the ISEI is to support and accelerate digitalization preparedness in the fields of economy, finance, and education.

Under the fourth program, Warjiyo called on the ISEI to conduct organizational empowerment through varied endeavors, including certifications and workshops.

"With 47 branches, the ISEI is already a strong organization. In the next three years, I am optimistic that we would not only open new branches but also foster new empowerment of directors and members from central and regional areas," Warjiyo affirmed.
