Indonesia's city proposes to set up 'Turkish village' - Anadolu Agency

Indonesia's city proposes to set up 'Turkish village' - Anadolu Agency

JAKARTA, Indonesia

Indonesian officials on Friday proposed to establish a "Turkish village" within the metropolitan area of capital Jakarta to promote not only the Turkish language, culture and cuisine but also to facilitate the promotion of trade between the two countries.

The proposed village will be built in the Depok city, Muhammad Idris, the city's mayor, told Anadolu Agency after he and Deputy Mayor Imam Budi Hartono held a virtual meeting with Indonesian Ambassador to Ankara Lalu Muhamad Iqbal on Friday.

The village will be a good attraction for Indonesians to learn the Turkish language and understand their culture, Idris said.

He also proposed the export of ornamental fish to Turkey as Indonesia has already entered the European market selling multicolored small fishes.

The mayor stated that the city's economy is expected to grow by around 5% this year, and 6% next year. "The economy of Depok is mostly driven by processing and service industries," he said.

Depok is experiencing a rapid increase in population, needing strong public services and infrastructure, Idris said.

The local government is seeking investment cooperation in the development of infrastructure and industrial areas in the city through the Indonesian Embassy in Turkey, Hartono said.

"The Turkish village will also boost investment and trade cooperation with Turkey," he said, adding that the city government is planning to invite Turkish firms to collaborate in developing the proposed village.

Iqbal, for his part, welcomed the initiative of the city government. "We also have an interest in increasing Indonesia's trade with Turkey," he said.

The ambassador asked the city government to plan infrastructure projects and industrial estates to be offered to Turkish investors through public-private partnership and other schemes.

Iqbal also expressed his intention to assist Depok exporters with Turkish market analysis services. "Prepare the commodities first, and we will provide a market analysis. The process will take about two weeks," he added. ​​​​​​

Depok City Hospitals Reaching Full Capacity in Treating Covid-19 Cases - Tempo.co English

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Covid-19 hospitals in Depok City continue to receive patients with up to 90 percent occupancy rate. One of which is the University of Indonesia Hospital (RSUI).

RSUI business development manager Astrid Saraswaty Dewi on Thursday said that the hospital’s isolation rooms have exceeded 90 percent occupancy.

“Isolation [chamber] is over 90 percent while intensive care units to treat Covid-19 patients are already full,” said Astrid to Tempo on January 7. The hospital is equipped with 67 isolation rooms and 8 emergency facilities to treat Covid-19 cases.

She acknowledged that the increase had started before the year-end holidays but due to the current situation, the hospital is forced to only treat severe cases, which is in line with the instruction from the Health Ministry. 

Meanwhile, the Depok City General Hospital Director Devi Maryori said government-owned hospitals that are equipped with more rooms are currently 85 percent filled, as severe cases had increased recently.

Depok City, up to Thursday, January 7, has recorded 18,846 cases with 14,778 total recoveries, 448 deaths, and 3,620 ongoing cases.

Covid-19; Depok Imposes Local Lockdown in 422 Community Units - Tempo.co English

Covid-19; Depok Imposes Local Lockdown in 422 Community Units - Tempo.co English

TEMPO.CO, DepokThe Depok city administration imposed a local lockdown or known as social restriction of the alert village (PSKS) in 422 community units or RW for 14 days.

Depok Mayor Mohammad Idris said in a statement on Sunday, Dec. 27, that the enforcement took effect beginning Dec. 19, 2020, until January 2, 2021, based on the Mayor’s Decree No. 443/490/Kpts/Dinkes/Huk/2020. 

The 422 RW eligible for the quarantine spread across 63 urban villages and 11 subdistricts. The three highest figures were located in Sukamaju Urban Village with 22 RW, Mekarsari Urban Village with 16 RW, and Mekarjaya Urban Village with 14 RW.

Thus, Idris asserted that Depok prohibited New Year’s Eve celebrations that attract crowds. “Depok city is in a high-risk zone or red zone in two consecutive weeks because of rising cases in almost all regions,” he said.

According to him, the city administration would also tighten the Covid-19 alert village program, increase test capacity, add more isolation rooms in hospitals or isolation centers, and enhance the law enforcement on the health protocol along with the Military or TNI and the Police.

Idris further appealed to the public to implement the 2i3M movement, viz. having faith, maintaining immune, wearing a face mask, washing hands with soap, and maintaining distance.

“Because the key to our success in tackling the Covid-19 pandemic really depends on ourselves, our families, and the social environment, and most importantly the help of Allah, the Greatest Helper,” said Idris.
