Remarks from Dr. Dino Patti Djalal
Chairman Board of Trustee IDN Global

The Indonesian Diasporas, 6 million strong worldwide, have always been regarded as an important force for Indonesia's development. They did not retreat during the Covid-19 crisis. On the contrary, Indonesian diaspora communities across the world continued to provide moral, material and financial support for their fellow Indonesians at home. Indeed, Covid19 has proved to be a defining moment of compassion and solidarity for diaspora communities.

The Congress of Indonesian Diasporas, to be held online on 14 August this year, will provide an opportunity to highlight the enduring spirit of Indonesian Diasporas, and to celebrate their connections with each other and with their Indonesian homeland. The Congress will feature bright diaspora figures and national icons in various discussions, covering development, health, economics, business, technology, society, etc. There will also be lots of fun with various performances from diaspora entertainers.

 I hope to see diaspora communities to join this biannual Congress of Indonesian Diasporas, and I look forward to what promises to be an enlightening and inspiration day for all of us.


Remarks from Said Zaidansyah
Presiden IDN Global

IDN Global is pleased to host Congress of Indonesian Diaspora (CID) – 6 that will be held virtually on 14 August 2021. With COVID-19 pandemic in the backdrop, we have chosen a forward-looking theme for CID-6: “Post COVID-19: A Stronger Indonesia with Diaspora” as we are confident that Indonesia will emerge stronger and better after the pandemic with the active participation and contribution of the different elements of the society including the diaspora.

For CID-6, we will bring together diaspora from various walks of life to deliberate together with Indonesian policy makers in virtual rooms on how Indonesia can recover better after the pandemic. In addition to our usual line up of high caliber seminars, CID-6 will also (i) feature music ensemble from diaspora across the world, (ii) showcase what our diaspora communities in different continents across the globe have been doing; and (iii) hold open forum between Indonesian policy makers and our diaspora as well as our diaspora with the public. In sum, we intend to make this CID an unforgettable event.

Our motto in IDN Global is “Connecting the Dots, Expanding the Opportunities.” We remain true to this in our activities in the past two years and will showcase this even more in CID-6. We look forward to seeing you there.

Salam Diaspora!
