From 13th – 15th August 2018, BINUS UNIVERSITY participated in the Conference of Indonesian Youth Diaspora 2018 (CDIY-2018), which was held in the Hotel Grand Sahid Jaya in Jakarta. CIDY-2018 is a forum that brings together Indonesian youths from across the archipelago as well as those living abroad with the aim to explore different ideas on how the youth can contribute to the country’s development.
Representing BINUS UNIVERSITY at the event was Mr Stephen Wahyudi Santoso who presented a talk titled, ‘Fostering and Empowering to serve the Nation’, in which he highlighted the university’s active role in providing high-quality education for all students irrespective of their economic and ethnic background – resulting in many graduates achieving success in the upper echelons of corporate Indonesia. As part of the event, participants at CDIY-2018 pledged their commitment to Indonesia’s Vision 2045 plan, which aims to turn the country into the world’s fifth largest economy. To achieve this goal, Vision 2045 will focus on four pillars; human resources combined with advanced science technology; sustainable economic development; and inclusive economic distribution and good governance.
In attending this conference, BINUS UNIVERSITY showcased its standing as an institution that’s at the forefront of Indonesia’s higher education sector. This is evident by the university’s continuous development of its curricula, as well as expanding network of local and international partners — enabling students to have the best facilities to truly impact Indonesia’s economic growth.
