Indonesia has been chosen to lead ASEAN Chairmanship 2023, during a time of increased complexity in the world, with various challenges from geopolitical & economic perspectives and must be managed to avoid conflicts and wars.
The ASEAN chairmanship under Indonesia’s leadership aims to make ASEAN a stable and peaceful region that upholds international law and human values, while maintaining internal peace, centrality and becoming a fast-growing, inclusive, and sustainable economic region.
In order to achieve this, ASEAN needs to build a solid regional health architecture, maintain food and energy security, and financial stability. Indonesia also aims to strengthen ASEAN’s capacity and institutional effectiveness to respond to challenges in the next 20 years, towards ASEAN 2045, to become more adaptive, responsive, and competitive.
Ultimately, Indonesia's goal is making ASEAN to remain relevant and essential for its people, the Indo-Pacific region, and the world.
The ASEAN Heads of State and Government (HOSGs) formed the ASEAN Business Advisory Council (ASEAN-BAC) in November 2001 at the 7th ASEAN Summit in Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei Darussalam. As the leading ASEAN voice headed by the private sector, ASEAN-BAC was established in April 2003 to support the region's efforts to achieve economic integration.
As the lead of ASEAN-BAC 2023, Indonesia Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KADIN Indonesia), has a clear goal: to accelerate the region's transformation via innovation and inclusivity. With the theme "ASEAN Centrality: Innovating towards Greater Inclusivity," KADIN Indonesia focuses on three core values: centrality, innovation, and inclusiveness that are reflected through five key priorities: digital transformation, sustainable development, health resilience, trade facilitation, and food security.
