Vice President of Indonesia, Jusuf Kalla invited all Islamic businessmen to remain united amid uncertain global economic conditions. According to Jusuf Kalla, the unity of Islamic entrepreneurs around the world is very important to help Islamic countries become developed countries.
“Now that the world is experiencing trade economic problems, agriculture has climate change that has multiple effects,” he said when opening the Annual Session, the Islamic Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture (ICCIA) in Jakarta, Wednesday (10/23/2018).
“Meanwhile, the Islamic state also experiences external internal problems. Therefore, the entrepreneurs must remain united in advancing the nation and the Islamic world,” he continued.
The Indonesian Vice President said, the Islamic world now needs strong solidarity among entrepreneurs. That is because one of the keys to the economic revival of an Islamic state is the solidarity of its entrepreneurs. Jusuf Kalla reminded Islamic countries to have unequal economic progress.
There are those that are rich in natural resources, a strong industry, a large Islamic banking, but on the other hand, there are those who do not have it all.
He hopes, the 60th Annual ICCIA Session can produce something real to help Islamic countries rise in the economic sector. The ICCIA meeting is expected to produce good cooperation between Islamic countries. So that there are real actions to boost the economies of Islamic countries.
“We have talked too much, today we are attending the 60th meeting. Many things were produced in the talks, of course, we have to calculate how many real things can be implemented,” the Vice President said.
This year’s ICCIA annual meeting was held on October 22-23 2018. ICCIA is a meeting between Indonesian businessmen and entrepreneurs who are members of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC).
In this annual session also signed the cooperation between ICCIA and KADIN as a form of support for the acceleration of infrastructure development in the country.
