Banda Aceh – Acting Governor of Aceh became the keynote speaker or keynote speaker at the Indonesia-Malaysia-Thailand Growth Triangle (CIMT-GT) meeting in Banda Aceh, Wednesday 8 August 2018. The meeting discussed the action plan for the Development of Urban Areas with Green City Vision.

Nova Iriansyah said, the topics discussed at the meeting were very relevant to the Aceh government program that implemented the concept of environmentally sustainable development (Aceh Green).

“We also certainly really hope, the concept of development

Aceh Green based can be continued with the development of green cities (Green City) in a number of regions, so that the Aceh Green vision carried out at the provincial level is strengthened by the presence of cities greendi in urban areas, “said Nova Iriansyah.

Aceh Green is one of Aceh’s development visions. Therefore, Nova said, he realized how important it was to preserve nature to be balanced with the pace of development that was going on.

“The Aceh Green Vision is basically not only aimed at maintaining Aceh’s natural balance, but also to support the spirit in addressing climate change which is an international issue at this time,” said Nova.

The issue of climate change is important to be discussed as part of the early anticipation of environmental damage. Therefore, the IMT-GT meeting is important to discuss the concept of development with a green vision to overcome the extreme events of climate change.

In the Governour’s Climate and Forest meeting which took place in Bali, Denmark, America and Paris, in 2009 to 2015, a number of developed countries proposed that developing countries that still have extensive forest cover to implement the spirit of green vision in its development concept.

Indonesia is one that is expected to support this spirit, because Indonesia still has a fairly large forest area. In Indonesia, one of the forests that has a large deposit is Aceh. Where there are 3.5 million hectares of forest that is still green, consisting of about 2 hectares of protected forest and around 638 thousand hectares of production forest.

To support this spirit, the governor of Aceh then issued Instruction No. 5 of 2007 concerning a logging moratorium in all Aceh forest areas. The aim is to maintain a life support system, strengthen community social capital and support sustainable development.

The rest is to maintain the beauty of the forest and restore the function of degraded forests through restoration and reforestation of critical lands. The spirit of the moratorium is the basis for the Aceh Government to carry out the vision of Aceh Green.

“Aceh Green is the foundation for the Aceh government in carrying out environmentally and sustainable development that is sensitive to disasters,” said Nova. [Humas-Aceh]

BERITAKINI.CO, Banda Aceh | Head of the Aceh Investment and One Stop Service (PMPTSP) Aulia Sofyan said that a comprehensive answer was needed regarding the realization of investment in Aceh. Because, according to him, promoting investment is a cross-sector job.

“So, when someone asks for investment, not DPMPTSP itself is the one who answers,” said Aulia when asked for her response about the question of the Finnish Ambassador to Indonesia, H. E. Mrs. Pdivi Hiltunen-Toivio to the Speaker of the DPRA Muharuddin, why until now Aceh had not been seen by investors.

Aulia said, answering the issue of investment realization could also be from several perspectives. He himself chose to explain from a promotion perspective.

To BERITAKINI.CO, Aulia explained at length in writing the promotion that had been carried out by SKPA that she led. Not to forget he also included some of the achievements of the Aceh DPMPTSP.

According to Aulia, Aceh DPMPTSP has conducted a series of promotions both at home and abroad to attract investors to invest in the land of Rencong.

In 2017, for example, Aceh’s DPMPTSP conducted overseas promotion activities in several countries, but based on invitations from organizers, such as the activities of trade, torism and investment (TTI) forums.

“Our presence is to introduce any investment potential that can be developed in Aceh, security guarantees from the government, clear and clean land, incentives and facilities provided, guarantee of availability of labor (skills and unskill), and supporting infrastructure (roads, ports , airport, availability of energy and clean water), “he said.

The same thing is also done to attract domestic investment. Aulia even said that Aceh’s DPMPTSP had already carried out investment missions with a system of picking up balls to bonafit companies in Jakarta, such as PT Jababeka. This company, said Aulia, has collaborated with the City Government of Banda Aceh.

“There is PT Jaya Saka Aceh, now they have taken care of the company’s establishment certificate, and in the near future will conduct a field visit to see the availability of land for the core land to build a sugar factory in the Bireuen and Bener Meriah regions,” he said.

He also said that the promotion carried out did not necessarily immediately realize investment. Because, he said, investors need accurate data and information about the investment plan that will be developed.

“Investors’ interest to know more about investment potential is a success in promotional activities, with interest they will make a visit to Aceh. That way, our first point is to successfully increase the number of foreign tourist destinations to Aceh, which brings multiplier effects for Aceh, flight, hotel reservations, meals, transportation, souvenirs and others, “he said.

Banda Aceh,  Monday (July 23, 2018).
Aceh Investment and One Stop Integrated Services re-organize Socialization of Regional Investment Potential Information System (SIPID) Year 2018. SIPID is a web-based information system that serves to provide information about potential investment area. SIPID is also one of BKPM’s efforts in contributing to achieving investment targets by facilitating and promoting opportunities and investment potential owned by the region. SIPID will continue to integrate between Provinces, Regencies / Cities which can be accessed directly by investors and prospective investors at home and abroad.

This was conveyed by Mr. Wing Parikesit as Head of Subdivision of Primary and Tertiary Sector, Directorate of Regional Potential Development of BKPM RI. Dissemination of Information Systems and Regional Investment Potential (SIPID) held at Grand Arabia Hotel Monday, July 23, 2018, also presented Astrid Indah Lestari speakers who served as SIPID Managers. In addition to presenting the material, Astrid also directly gave simulations to participants how to use SIPID. Participants looked enthusiastic in learning the input of potential investment data in their respective regions.

One of the participants from Lhokseumawe City named Rizal Haiqi asked whether SIPID has any legal basis. Because according to him, if the legal basis is not clear, the attention of the local government to such data is minimal. If there is no legal basis, rizal proposes to make regulations from the center for later adoption by the Government of Aceh into the Governor Regulation, Regulations or Regional Regulations for clarity of data from this SIPID.

“The legal basis does not exist but related to SIPID is our tupoksi which refers to Head of BKPM Regulation No. 1 of 2011 that is to identify, analyze the potentials and opportunities to the electronic documentation. However, SIPID was created to provide space for regional friends to utilize this system. We hope that we only support data from the regions even though there is no legal umbrella,”  said Mr. Wing.
