President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

What is your name?

 

Assistant Commissioner of Police Syarif M. Fitriansyah (Assistant to the Adjutant of the President of the Republic of Indonesia)

What is your name?

Kasbul Asror (Young Mangrove Activist)

Asror, Kasbul Asror.

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

Please take care of it so Asror can go to Jakarta. To go there. Or he can go (study) at the Shopee Export School in Solo. But I think Shopee is more concrete since the students there being taught to practice right away and the market (also) exists. What is your commodity?

Kasbul Asror (Young Mangrove Activist)

So I can export.

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

No, I mean, what is your commodity?

Kasbul Asror (Young Mangrove Activist)

Here?

 

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

I mean, if I pay for your tuition to study there or study in a (export) community, what are your future goals here?

 

Kasbul Asror (Young Mangrove Activist)

Here, there are marine and fisheries products and rubber, sir. I want to help developing those potential here.

 

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

So those are the commodities you want to export? Okay, good. Excellent. It means you see an opportunity that can be seized here, right?

 

Kasbul Asror (Young Mangrove Activist)

That is right, sir.

 

 

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

Okay, that’s good. It is either in Bisa Ekspor community or Shopee Export School. It’s even better, more concrete. Please prepare the ticket immediately, either to Jakarta or Solo. If (you want to study at) Shopee, then go to Solo and if (you want to study) at the community… I’ll check first which one is better.

 

Kasbul Asror (Young Mangrove Activist)

Thank you very much, sir.

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

It means you already know what commodity …

Kasbul Asror (Young Mangrove Activist)

I just start while still figuring it out as well …

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

If you want to go, you must know which commodities you want to export from this region. Be it the capacity of it, how many tons (that can be exported), you must understand it all.

Kasbul Asror (Young Mangrove Activist)

Yes, sir.

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

Since it will be also be taught like that.

Kasbul Asror (Young Mangrove Activist)

Yes, sir.

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

May I ask, what is your capital for exporting?

Kasbul Asror (Young Mangrove Activist)

I don’t have any capital yet.

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

In the future, you will be a bridge connecting farmers and fishermen to export their products (GWH/MMB)
