On 7th July 2020, Universitas Tunas Pembangunan Surakarta, Indonesia organized a session with Faculty of Business & Management(FBM), Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) Malaysia via the virtual platform, and the topic of discussion focused on the post-Covid-19 economic agenda for Indonesia and Malaysia.
Prof.Dr.Ir.Tresna Priyana, Rector of UTP Surakarta Indonesia, and Dr.J.S.Keshminder, senior lecturer from the Department of Economics and Financial Studies FBM UiTM were the speakers of this event. This event was attended by 103 academic members and students from both universities.
It was an interesting, active, and meaningful session for the participants and speakers. Among the highlights of this event was the discussion on the challenges faced by both countries and the changing economic landscape due to this crisis.
The session also had discussions on the policies taken by policymakers to stabilize the economy. The participants were also reminded of the importance of working together as one nation to restore the economy of the country. No nation can stand strong without the support of its citizens.
This event helped participants to have a better understanding of the economic situation in both countries while learning from one another on how to deal with this predicament and do the best in reviving the country’s economy.
It’s hoped that more fruitful knowledge sharing sessions will be carried out in the future for the benefit of UTP, UiTM, and both countries.
