Muhammad Lutfi, Former Head of the Investment Coordinating Board, former Minister of Trade, and former Indonesian Ambassador to Japan and the Federation of Micronesia, member on the Board of Experts to the Jokowi campaign; and,
Dr. Ir. Dradjad H. Wibowo M.Ec, Senior Economist at the Institute for Development of Economics and Finance (INDEF), PAN party member and on the Board of Experts to the Prabowo campaign.
Hans Vriens, Managing Director of Vriens & Partners, moderated the lively session between both speakers and the audience consisting of 50 attendees from both public and private sectors, graciously hosted by venue partner ING Bank.
