Albert H. Gordon Lecture: The New World Order, Call for a Coordinated Global Response

4:30pm to 6:00pm


Harvard Kennedy School, Malkin Penthouse || 79 JFK Street Cambridge, MA 02138

Albert H. Gordon Lecture presented by Sri Mulyani Indrawati, Finance Minister of Indonesia

Against the backdrop of the New World Order, characterized by the rise of nationalism and protectionism, Indonesia has shown renewed commitment to global cooperation, while aggressively pursuing shared prosperity to improve the lives of all its people.  Given its economic relevance and its strategic geographical position, what happens in Indonesia matters to the world.  Indonesia is home to a quarter billion people, is the world’s largest predominantly Muslim nation, and is a member of the G20 with a trillion dollar economy. What is the response of Indonesia to the New World Order? How can global leaders respond to current events without destroying the engines of global prosperity?
