A New Di­men­sion

Indonesia Tatler - - To Our Readers - Mil­lie Stephanie Luk­ito CEO and Bureau Chief

There’s noth­ing like new blood and fresh ideas on an on­go­ing project, and that’s ex­actly what Jakarta is get­ting this month as Anies Baswedan and San­di­aga Uno take on the re­spec­tive re­spon­si­bil­i­ties of gover­nor and vice gover­nor. This is­sue’s cover story (“Lead­ing Men”) looks at the pair’s cam­paign prom­ises and what they will mean for cit­i­zens of this fast-evolv­ing me­trop­o­lis. Jakarta is a city burst­ing with prom­ise: we hope that Anies and Sandi can con­tinue the stel­lar work of the pre­vi­ous ad­min­is­tra­tion in trans­form­ing the city’s in­fra­struc­ture and ad­dress­ing other needs, mak­ing it a bet­ter place for all cit­i­zens and a city we can all be proud to call our own.

Speak­ing of pos­i­tive change, in this is­sue we also chat with the im­mensely tal­ented Imelda Har­sono, who is lead­ing the charge to trans­form In­done­sia’s en­ergy sec­tor with re­new­able so­lar power. Her vi­sion is to en­sure that the na­tion’s en­ergy de­mands are met in an en­vi­ron­men­tally con­scious way and all the while adding jobs to the econ­omy.

In­done­sia Tatler is noth­ing if not com­mit­ted to mak­ing this won­der­ful coun­try a bet­ter place for all its cit­i­zens, and for this rea­son, we are also proud to fea­ture the story be­hind our col­lab­o­ra­tion with Wanda House of Jewels and Yayasan Kanker Payu­dara In­done­sia to help with the bat­tle against breast can­cer. Our com­mit­ment to art is also well known, and as well as postevent cov­er­age of the highly suc­cess­ful sec­ond in­stall­ment of ART STAGE Jakarta, we also fo­cus on AR­TO­TEL In­done­sia’s as­pi­ra­tions. This lo­cal brand, which was founded in 2011 with the idea of pro­mot­ing lo­cal art to ho­tel guests, is be­ing trans­formed into the AR­TO­TEL Group, fo­cus­ing on art ex­hi­bi­tions and art-re­lated events and work­shops among other things. We wish them ev­ery suc­cess.

Lastly, In­done­sia Tatler’s high-so­ci­ety world is so of­ten fast-paced, and we hope you en­joy vi­car­i­ous thrills with our story of driv­ing a high­oc­tane Fer­rari through the wind­ing streets and open high­ways of Bali (“Pedal to the Metal”). It was our priv­i­lege to have this op­por­tu­nity and we pass on to you the story be­hind this amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Life in the fast lane, in­deed.

Happy read­ing!
