The Government of Indonesia is committed to integrated national intellectual property strategy in order to boost the improvement of the Indonesian economy. This was conveyed by Director of Cooperation and Intellectual Property Empowerment of the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights, Dede Mia Yusanti, in a press release prior to the celebration of World Intellectual Rights Day 2017, Thursday (20/4) in Jakarta. According to her, one of the efforts for the integrated national intellectual property strategy is the improvement of the coordination among various related institutions in shaping the direction of intellectual property development in Indonesia.
“Related to the commemoration of the World Intellectual Property Day, in this year we will organize the National IP Strategy. Related institutions work separately. For instance, the Creative Economy Agency, the Intellectual Property Directorate, and the Ministry of Research Technology and Higher Education have their own strategy for the development of intellectual property. We need to do this together with a clear direction. That is what we want to push,” said Dede Mia Yusanti.
Dede Mia Yusanti further explained that in addition to increasing the cooperation of various agencies and institutions, her office will also develop innovation centers in several universities in Indonesia as well as institutional study centers. According to her it is intended to support innovation in the community to encourage empowerment and the economy. She also highlighted the low understanding of the community about intellectual property so that the government also continues to encourage the socialization of intellectual property in the community.

Police laud Jakarta citizens for maintaining security and order
Head of the Metro Jaya Police Inspector General M. Iriawan has lauded Jakarta’s citizens for jointly maintaining security and order in the province during the second round of the 2017 Jakarta gubernatorial election. Head of Public Relations of the Metro Jaya Police Commissioner Argo Yuwono noted on Thursday that the police head of Metro Jaya and regional military commander of Jaya expressed their gratitude to the people of Jakarta, as the second round of the Jakarta election had run in a conducive manner. Yuwono stated that the voting and counting process went smoothly without any significant disturbance due to support from all societal elements. He cited several incidents that had occurred owing to a misunderstanding, but the election organizers and security officers were able to diffuse the tensions. Some events included the mass dissolution around the Polling Station 17 in Setiabudi, South Jakarta, as a station where the former Indonesian president B.J. Habibie had cast his vote. The security officers have secured 15 people suspected of possessing identity cards of Madura, East Java, in the Klender area in East Jakarta. (antara)
