BANDA ACEH, (Thursday, 19 October 2017). Department of Investment and Integrated Services One Door DPMPTSP) held a Workshop on IMT-GT Cooperation Revitalization at Grand Nanggroe Hotel Banda Aceh on Thursday (19/10). IMT-GT (Indonesia Malaysia Thailand Growth Triangle) has been established 24 years and Aceh as a pioneer in this cooperation has made progress especially in tourism sector and connectivity both air and sea. As stated by President Jokowi at the 10th IMT-GT Summit in Manila, the development of the tour package for the economic growth triangle area should be improved. For example cruise ship package cruise Sabang-Phuket-Langkawi as one effort to increase connectivity in the area of ​​cooperation. Therefore the construction of connectivity is very important.

The same thing was conveyed by a speaker from the National Secretariat IMT-GT Indonesia, Netty Muharni, as the Assistant Deputy Regional and Subregional Cooperation of the Coordinating Ministry for the Economy that the tourism sector in the IMT-GT region increased every year. But Malaysia’s position surpassed Thailand and Indonesia. Need to take advantage IMT-GT cooperation to attract tourists to Indonesia, especially to Aceh. The international airport in Sumatera is 9, but new international flights operate in 6 airports, in Malaysia 4 airports and in Thailand there are 5 airports. But for HUB still in Malaysia, therefore it is expected that IMT-GT can be maximized connectivity with Malaysia and Thailand to support economic and tourism development.

In addition, the national strategic infrastructure project is partly integrated into IMT-GT cooperation, including the Sumatera toll road and the Trans Sumatra Highway to connect logistics and human movement from Aceh to Lampung. This proves Indonesia’s commitment to increase connectivity in Sumatra with Malaysia and Thailand. In addition to the Green City project, there is also a University Network (Uninet) program headed by Unsyiah.

The areas of cooperation in IMT-GT are: infrastructure and transportation, trade and investment, tourism, halal service products, human resource development, education and culture, agriculture and agro-industry, and environment (green city).

It is necessary to change the paradigm of IMT-GT cooperation to unite the cooperation program that became the priority of IMT-GT objectives. For example, “Quality Tourism” by raising the standard of public services to international standards, including road and food hygiene, transportation, hospitals with international service standards, even international equivalent education. Indonesia needs to imitate and even make new breakthroughs for tourism. To realize all IMT-GT programs needed work gotong royong together all related to the action plan more leverage realized.

Business actors become one of the keys to economic success, and IMT-GT becomes the bridge. SMEs need to be driven through the IMT-GT market. Goods from Aceh still can not compete with the outside because it is still too expensive logistics costs. Therefore concerning the logistics should be looked for solutions to be cheaper. The entrepreneurs of Aceh need to be built intensively to hit the IMT-GT market. In order for people to invest in Aceh, it needs to add value to the products and services offered. For tourism may develop “sharia tourism” in which to provide products and halal. This was conveyed by Khairul Mahalli, as chairman of JBC Indonesia

The event, moderated by Syaifullah Muhammad from ICAIOS, was quite interesting because the participants who were present were quite enthusiastic in giving comments and questions.

From Diskominfo and Persandian Aceh appealed to develop Aceh’s superior products before being offered / traded abroad by utilizing the free port in Sabang. From the University of Malikussaleh stated that Aceh should have a “Halal Industry Roadmap” because currently the largest halal products in the world held by Brazil, not Aceh who has claimed to be a sharia region. From the Economic Bureau of the Regional Secretary of Aceh, the regional cooperation is currently decreasing because there is no longer handling it because the change for it needs to be re-enacted because cooperation in IMT-GT is very important.
