Safeguarding Indonesian Maritime Sovereignty Through a 360° Active Defence Strategy

Indonesia is the world’s second largest producer of marine products and contributes to around 6% of the global aquaculture production. The country aims to harness and expand its blue economy initiative, which is a model of sustainable development that emphasizes the utilization of the coastal and marine ecosystem and is part of Joko Widodo’s Global Maritime Fulcrum vision.

Nonetheless, many challenges have presented themselves over the past few years, and they threaten to hamper this blue economy initiative. In addition to traditional maritime security issues, there are numerous other non-traditional maritime security challenges like IUU fishing, piracy, organized crimes and illegal smuggling.

To counter this, the Indonesia government is keen to put in place good maritime security governance with enough maritime assets and capabilities to identify, eliminate and deter threats both traditional and non-traditional issues, develop an integrated intelligence information sharing system and introduce coordinated maritime patrols among its various maritime agencies.

The Defense Ministry will also receive IDR 107.7tn, the biggest chunk of the country’s 2018 budget as the government continues to modernise its armed forces and other military organizations, including upgrading its detection and patrol capabilities, underwater detection capabilities and enhance search and rescue operations in Indonesia’s Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) and regional waters.

Among the Indonesian maritime organisations represented at the conference are the Ministry of Defence Indonesia, Indonesian Navy, Indonesian Air Force, Bakamla, Kesatuan Penjagaan Laut dan Pantai Indonesia (KPLP), Indonesian Marine Police, Badan SAR Nasional (BASARNAS) and the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries.
