Stop the war, President Joko Widodo reveals the impact


on – President JokowiJoko Widodo, called for an end to the war in Ukraine now because in addition to creating a humanitarian tragedy, it has also worsened the global economy.

The President made the call during the Special ASEAN-US Summit held at the US Department of State, Washington DC on Friday, May 13, 2022.

“War will not benefit anyone. The world has no choice but to end the war now. Every country, every leader has the responsibility to create an enabling environment so that war can be stopped and peace can be achieved,” Jokowi said.

Economic forecast

President Jokowi explained that economic growth is also a concern. The IMF lowered its forecast for economic growth in emerging and developing Asia by 0.5% in 2022 and 0.2% in 2023. And the World Bank lowered its economic growth forecast for several countries from ASEAN at 1.2%.

For some ASEAN members, a 10 percent increase in oil prices will lead to a 0.7 percent decrease in national income, and an increase in wheat prices will lead to a 1 percent increase in poverty, the president explained.

Jokowi reiterated what was said during the meeting with Congress. That for more than five decades, ASEAN has continued to build an inclusive security architecture, prioritizing the paradigm of collaboration, encouraging a habit of dialogue and rule-based orders. We encourage the same spirit in the Indo-Pacific through the ASEAN perspectives on the Indo-Pacific, he explained.

At the special summit attended by President Joe Biden and leaders of ASEAN countries, Jokowi hailed the US initiative through the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF).

Of course, cooperation within the framework of IPEF must be inclusive. I hope for the synergy between IPEF and the priority implementation of cooperation in the AOIP (ASEAN Outlook on the Indo-Pacific), said the president.

When Indonesia takes over as ASEAN Chairmanship next year, President Jokowi will also announce his intention to host the Indo-Pacific Infrastructure Forum.

I look forward to US participation in the forum, he said.

Present at the special ASEAN-US summit, President Jokowi was accompanied by Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi, Trade Minister Muhammad Lutfi and Indonesian Ambassador to the United States Rosan Roeslani.
