In the first Indonesia Project Global Seminar last week, we discussed policy challenges in dealing with the coronavirus outbreak in Indonesia. In this second talk, we will draw some comparative perspectives on what measures have been introduced in other countries and how they might or might not work in Indonesia. Erick Hansnata from KPMG Australia will discuss the relevant measures in Australia, Ari Perdana from the Asian Development Bank will talk about President Duterte’s policy in the Philippines, and Puspa Amri from Sonoma State University will talk about public health responses from various states and counties in the United States - and the gigantic disaster relief recently rolled out by the US government. Finally, Haryo Aswicahyono from the Centre for Strategic and International Studies will update us on the situation in Indonesia and explore which lessons from other countries that may fit with Indonesia.

This seminar is fully online following ANU and the Australian Government’s advice regarding public/social events. The space for this meeting is limited to 500 participants and it will be on a first come first serve basis. Kindly mute your microphone upon entering the virtual seminar room and please use the ‘Raise your hand’ button when the participants are invited to ask questions.
