Deputy of Biology of the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) Enny Sudarmonowati in a Press Conference said that LIPI keeps doing optimal research for the interest of the Indonesian people.
“The point is how the results of LIPI researches can be received well by the community and how to make people find that science is not very difficult. They can do it and it is beneficial for the people. The important thing is how to involve National Development Planning Agency Bapennas and how to increase the research budget. The Deputy of Biological Sciences as the scientific authority of biodiversity in Indonesia has the obligation to update data. Therefore we ask more funds and make sure that the results of exploration could be implemented,” said Sudarmonowati.
Manwhile the acting Head of LIPI, Bambang Subiyanto, said that Bioresources Science Week Fair BSWF can also be an opportunity to promote research cooperation among researchers and to strengthen national and international networks.

Indonesian expert in international law, Hikmahanto Juwana stated that people must act wisely and think critically to address the issue of Rohingya Muslims. Hikmahanto Juwana said on Tuesday (5/9) that people, in expressing their anger towards the government of Myanmar, must refrain from taking violent measures against Myanmar’s symbols in Indonesia. He noted that such actions will burden the government of Indonesia to find ways to resolve the complicated Rohingya issue. The Indonesian community should trust the government for the settlement of the crisis in Myanmar. Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno LP Marsudi earlier asked the Myanmar authorities to grant access to international aid in order to overcome humanitarian crisis in Myanmars Rakhine State.
