At the Fifth Grand Annual Meeting in Bochum, 2013, PPI Jerman (Perhimpunan Pelajar Indonesia Jerman) a.k.a the Indonesian Student Union in Germany or Indonesische Studenten Vereinigung e.V)agreed upon the idea of organizing an international conference in Germany. This event is also regarded as an opportunity to contribute to our communities in Germany and Indonesia by raising themes that are relevant and applicable to the improvement of human lives and the development of nations.
To materialize this vision, ICONIC (the International Conference of Indonesian Intellectual Community) is launched, which will be held regularly as one of the organization’s annual projects.
“GLOBAL COMPETITIVENESS AND DEVELOPING NATIONS: A STRATEGIC APPROACH TOWARDS A HOLISTIC DEVELOPMENTS”
The theme for this year’s international conference is inspired by Indonesia’s development in relation to the imminent ASEAN Economic Community in 2015 and ASEAN Integration 2020 in particular our homeland: Indonesia.
