“Indonesia, with all its problems and challenges, is interesting to study, especially in policy functions, financial policies, and others. On the other hand, Indonesia has the best universities that can contribute to policy, namely the University of Indonesia, especially the Faculty of Administrative Sciences. We thank you for the kind welcome from FIA UI. I hope that in this event, we can exchange ideas and provide mutual benefits,” said Prof. Seong-soo Kim, a Hankuk University of Foreign Studies professor.

Furthermore, Dr. Reza said that FIA UI provides various programs, both degree and non-degree, which are held for the benefit of education in Indonesia.

“Indonesia needs a transformation to survive in the present and the future. For this reason, Indonesia needs innovative and qualified young researchers. We do research for the good of the masses, not just for ourselves or our respective institutions. Therefore, universities as centres of interaction between business, society and government must continue to develop themselves in a better direction,” said Dra. Novita Ikasari, M.Comm, Ph.D Head of Administration and Commerce.

Prof. Ki-Seok Kwon Professor from Hanbat National University, explained the points of the K-Innovation Partnership Program With Indonesia in 2022, namely 1) The K-Innovation Partnership Program is STEPI-Korea’s collaboration with various countries related to Indonesia’s Science-Technology-Innovation (STI) Policy as part of from the STI Policy Cooperation between the National Research and Development Agency ( BRIN) and South Korea’s STEPI. 2) The three forms of cooperation are 1) research, 2) capacity building. 3) policy consulting.

Debie Puspasari, S.I.A, M.A Head of Public Relations and Representative Partnerships from the Democracy and Regional Governance Cluster Research (DeLOGO), revealed that FIA UI has a role in creating a researcher and contributing to the country. At FIA UI, students are trained to become young researchers in various things, such as doing projects with institutions, companies, agencies and others in the form of making policies or conducting policy evaluations.

“We hope we can collaborate again in the future between BRIN and FIA because we have the same background, so that we can work together. FIA UI, with available study programs, namely commerce, fiscal and public, is certainly very suitable for the needs of policy makers and others for the smooth running of our work,” said Maulana Akbar from BRIN.
