The Head of the National Library, Muhammad Syarif Bando, when he became the keynote speaker for Increasing the Community Literacy Index (PILM) for Banda Aceh City -
The rapidly changing world demands changes in various fields. Humans are forced to adapt to change. Like it or not, intelligence capital is needed so as not to be eliminated in the disruption that occurs.
“A smart nation correlates with well-being. And the duty of the library is to educate the nation's children according to the mandate stated in the 1945 Law," said the Head of the National Library, Muhammad Syarif Bando, when he became the keynote speaker for Increasing the Community Literacy Index (PILM) for Banda Aceh City, Tuesday (21/03).
Why do we need an intelligent and literate society? The Head of National Library continued, because soon Indonesia will enter the democratic party.
This is where the potential for information disruption occurs which often leads to hoaxes, so literacy skills are needed to avoid misunderstandings or lack of understanding of information.
In fact, Indonesia still has literacy problems. Low literacy results in a low human development index, low income per capita, and lack of competitiveness.
In the social order it also has an impact on increasing crime rates, declining quality of health so that the poverty rate increases.
"Low literacy has a multiplier effect on development issues," added Syarif Bando.
According to a release received by Voice of Indonesia on Tuesday, the presence of the library does not regulate the tasks of agriculture, the creative economy, nor the role of cooperatives and MSMEs. But the library presents books to educate people with knowledge because a lot of jobs are wasted and taken by other countries because they are braver to see opportunities and are smart.
"There must be awareness," said the Head of National Library
Therefore, the existence of the library must be utilized as widely as possible by the community. For centuries, libraries have been the foundation of education, knowledge, and provide access to information and knowledge needed according to the times.
One of the significant contributions made is the emphasis on social inclusion. Where the library acts as the epicenter of social interaction, where many people learn and grow to be successful.
"Libraries have a big role in helping MSMEs, encouraging economic growth in villages so they can compete in global business," said Regional Secretary of Banda Aceh City Amiruddin.
The active role of local government and all related institutions is needed. They must have new methods, new concepts and theories so that MSMEs are assisted in product dissemination or creativity.
"And that cannot be obtained except by reading," said the Deputy for Development of Library Resources of the National Library of Indonesia, Adin Bondar.
In line with Adin's statement, member of Commission X DPR RI Illiza Sa'aduddin Djamal that humans cannot gain knowledge without reading. The shift in the meaning of literacy is now not limited to reading and writing, but literacy has penetrated technology, culture and other sectors.
"In 2023, Aceh will build a library building worth 10 billion in central aceh district, simelue and sabang city.
When we face the challenge of recognizing the value of our heritage, this has an impact on the difficulty of investing in skills and knowledge in producing quality local products. Local products have special attention, high quality, unique and definitely popular. We must work together to develop an awareness strategy by building networks and demonstrating the value of product diversity. Maximize the role of the library down to the villages"//VOI
e-catalog launching in Jakarta -
The development of an efficient and effective government is very important in realizing prosperity and progress for all people. Therefore, the government must continue to innovate and develop systems that provide the best service to the community.
The Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment (Menko Marves), Luhut B. Pandjaitan said that this could be realized through the implementation of the Electronic Based Government System (SPBE) and its architecture.
Coordinating Minister Luhut said that Indonesia has four economic pillars, namely downstream, digitalization, village funds, and commodity prices. He emphasized that digitization is important to integrate various applications into one application for Indonesia.
"Digitalization is very important. Now, I ask that we all integrate. Let's all help the 7 ministries/institutions where I said all must be in one, that's SIMBARA, we'll make one that handles coal now, we'll put it in later. Oil palm, we also include ports. It's suddenly going up, is our tax revenue 48.6% from efficiency because everything is integrated. This is what we are building, an ecosystem so that it will reduce corruption, it will create efficiency. It will also create innovations from young Indonesians," explained Coordinating Minister Luhut.
According to a release received by Voice of Indonesia on Monday, SPBE is a breakthrough to realize excellent service to the community by increasing efficiency, effectiveness and accountability of government performance. In this case, simplicity is key, both in rules, processes, and applications.
Every service element must be oriented to the needs and convenience of the community and business actors. Coordinating Minister Luhut explained that one of them is through digitalization through the existence of e-catalogs.
"I also believe that all of you can do that. Now digitalization is running. You can see that now the e-catalog has 105 billion dollars or 1,600 trillion rupiah, of which nearly 90% of us have imported so far. Now it is gradual, starting from last year.
"We have started to enter the e-catalog, it was 400 trillion rupiah last year. This year the President gave instructions yesterday at Senayan that we have to achieve 90% this year and it can," added Coordinating Minister Luhut.
Furthermore, to accelerate the implementation of SPBE in 7 Ministries/Institutions under the coordination of the Coordinating Ministry for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries.
Coordinating Minister Luhut stressed that SPBE must create citizen-centric services where all service processes and results must be oriented to the interests of citizens and easy to use.
Then, there is a need for data standardization and full interoperability between all applications both intra and between ministries/institutions to ensure SPBE can run in a completely integrated manner.
Closing his remarks, Coordinating Minister Luhut asked for the cooperation of all parties to be able to unite and support service integration through this SPBE.
"Therefore, I ask Ministerial friends who are present here, let's jointly unite us to have this work. I believe once again that our second pillar is digitalization that will make our economy better in the future and I believe that there will be here from East Java, Mr. Anas's IT system is already good, West Java is also good and many places are also good. So, how do we just connect it," concluded the Coordinating Minister Luhut//VOI
Talk show on Increasing the Community Literacy Index (PILM) in Lampung Province -
President Joko Widodo on various occasions often emphasizes the importance of maximizing human resource capabilities. One way is through literacy. The benchmark for the nation's progress is seen from its literacy index level.
“Literacy culture is a matter of habit. The problem with the source of information, whether from physical or digital media, is just a technical issue," explained Deputy Governor of Lampung Chusnunia Chalim at a talk show on Increasing the Community Literacy Index (PILM) in Lampung Province, Monday (20/3).
Indonesia must pay close attention to the demographic bonus it will receive in the next 10-15 years. Does it contribute to the advancement of community literacy or not? Because it's useless if the potential that is owned is not able to make the quality of Indonesian people superior and competitive.
"We have been independent for 77 years. The Indonesian people must prove themselves capable of producing goods or services that have high international benefits. Dare to be a producing country, not a consumer," explained Head of the National Library, Muhammad Syarif Bando.
According to a release received by Voice of Indonesia on Monday, the government encourages the activities of micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) to be more creative, innovative and productive.
Last year (2022), the government has disbursed IDR 526 trillion from the APBN for the benefit of MSMEs. This does not include what has been budgeted through the regional budget of IDR 536 trillion, and BUMN posts of IDR 425 trillion.
Of course, in order for the MSME market to expand, technology is needed to support the existence of MSMEs, such as the presence of online media, which has recently been used to sell certain goods/services.
This is where the active role of local government and all related institutions is required. They must have new methods, new concepts and theories so that MSMEs are assisted in product dissemination or creativity. And it cannot be obtained except by reading.
"Knowledge is obtained from reading. Until now there has been no transfer of theory and practice from books to the brain other than reading," emphasized the Head of National Library of Indonesia.
Mulyadi Alkahfi, one of the successful MSME actors in Lampung province, admitted that without reading and literacy, it would be impossible for his frozen banana products to be widely known and liked.
Unlike most people, Mulyadi started his career with zero experience. Starting from a home industry and having no business knowledge. Luckily, his wife has the ability to play social and online media, from which her packaged products are marketed.
"Alhamdulillah, from reading every business development it can now be observed to be used as a reference for product development," admitted Mulyadi.
He also added that business does not only talk about delicious products but also other supporting facilities that help in marketing, such as halal certificates.
Mulyadi's success in developing his frozen banana business is proof of walking literacy. Because he is able to produce goods/services from what he reads. Continue to create and innovate so that the business continues.
"Social inclusion-based library transformation (TPBIS) is a program that the government relies on, in this case the National Library, in encouraging people to practice independence for their welfare," concluded Main Librarian Sri Sumekar//VOI
