In 2019, Joko Widodo – popularly known as Jokowi – was elected the seventh president of the Republic of Indonesia for a second five-year term. From modest beginnings in Central Java, his meteoric rise has come without the benefit of personal connections to the military or traditional elites who have dominated Indonesian politics for three-quarters of a century. This year, Indonesia’s G20 presidency will reaffirm Indonesia’s leadership in the world’s eyes and Jokowi has promised “inclusive, people-centred, environmentally friendly and sustainable growth” as Indonesia’s main commitment. Authors of Jokowi and The New Indonesia, Darmawan Prasodjo and Tim Hannigan discuss Jokowi with Ari Dwipayana and Michael Vatikiotis.

Pada tahun 2019, Joko Widodo – yang dikenal sebagai Jokowi – terpilih sebagai presiden ketujuh Republik Indonesia untuk masa jabatan lima tahun untuk periode kedua. Dari awal kesederhaaannya di Jawa Tengah, kebangkitannya yang meroket datang tanpa hubungan pribadi dengan militer atau elit tradisional yang telah mendominasi politik Indonesia selama tiga perempat abad. Tahun ini, kepresidenan G20 Indonesia akan menegaskan kembali kepemimpinan Indonesia di mata dunia dan Jokowi telah menjanjikan “pertumbuhan yang inklusif, berpusat pada rakyat, ramah lingkungan dan berkelanjutan” sebagai komitmen utama Indonesia. Penulis Jokowi and The New Indonesia, Darmawan Prasodjo dan Tim Hannigan akan membahas Jokowi dengan Ari Dwipayana dan Michael Vatikiotis.
