New Indonesian President Jokowi’s first five months in office have been a time of high hopes for a new paradigm for Indonesian governance, reform, and growth, tempered by political realities and the unanticipated developments that arise for Presidents early in their terms.  The five-month point is appropriate  to assess President Jokowi’s early progress on such issues  as the fuel subsidy reduction, and the outlook for progress on long-term issues such as his ability to raise investment, develop infrastructure, improve Indonesia’s skills for the 21st century, manage relations with the parliament and his party, and implement his program.

Please join us on Thursday February 26 at 2:30 p.m. with distinguished Indonesia scholar and authority Adam Schwarz,  CEO for Asia of the Asia Group, who will give us his insights on President Jokowi’s presidency at the five month point.   His talk will be followed by Questions and Answers.

This event is open and free of charge. To register, kindly RSVP HERE by noon February 25, 2014.
