KTT IORA Mengukuhkan Indonesia sebagai Poros Maritim Dunia

(Beritadaerah – Nasional) Konferensi Indian Ocean Rim Association (IORA) yang berlangsung pada 5-7 Maret 2017 di Jakarta Convention Center, menjadi momentum bagi Indonesia untuk mengukuhkan menjadi negara poros maritim dunia.

“Kegiatan ini adalah perwujudan dari semangat Nawacita Pemerintahan Joko Widodo. Indonesia adalah negara maritim yang mampu memberikan kontribusi bagi kesejahteraan dunia melalui sejumlah kesepakatan yang bakal dicapai dalam KTT IORA di bawah kepemimpinan Indonesia,’’ujar R. Niken Widiastuti, Direktur Jenderal Informasi dan Komunikasi Publik, Kementerian Komunikasi dan Informatika.

Niken, yang juga menjabat sebagai Penanggungjawab Panitia Pelaksana Teknis Bidang Media dan Humas KTT IORA 2017, menyebutkan bahwa lokasi negara Indonesia yang berada di antara Samudra Hindia dan Samudra Pasifik menjadi sangat strategis secara geopolitik.

IORA sendiri merupakan organisasi yang terdiri dari negara-negara pesisir Samudra Hindia yang membentang dari Benua Afrika hingga ke Benua Australia yang beranggotakan 21 negara. Jumlah penduduk anggota IORA mencapai 2,7 milyar jiwa atau lebih dari seperempat penduduk dunia.

Lintas pelayaran di kawasan Samudra Hindia merupakan jalur yang mampu mengangkut separo dari total kapal container dunia, sepertiga bulk kargo, dan dua pertiga kapal pengangkut minyak dunia.

Angka ini belum termasuk migrasi penduduk yang dinamis dengan pergerakan mencapai 40 juta penduduk. Namun demikian kontribusinya baru 12 persen dari pangsa pasar dunia dan 10 persen dari produk domestik bruto global. “Potensinya harus lebih tergali secara maksimal,’’ tambah Siti Sofia Sudarma, Direktur Informasi dan Media, Kementerian Luar Negeri.

Melalui konferensi inilah, di bawah kepemimpinan Indonesia, potensi IORA akan dikembangkan. “Indonesia menunjukkan kepemimpinan di kawasan Samudra Hindia dan sekaligus mempromosikannya sebagai the new growth center,’’ tambah Siti Sofia.
