TIMES BLITAR, JAKARTA – The Indonesian Student Association Worldwide (PPI Dunia) has embarked on a groundbreaking partnership with the bio link platform s.id to propel Indonesian creativity onto the global stage. The collaboration, formalized with a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed in Jakarta (7/12/2023) marks a significant step toward showcasing Indonesia's innovative products and services.
The primary goal of this collaboration is to provide a unique avenue for Indonesian students worldwide to amplify the visibility of homegrown products and, simultaneously, cultivate a digital identity that resonates globally.
The MoU signing ceremony, attended by PPI Dunia Coordinator Hamzah Assuudy Lubis and s.id CEO M Shidiq Purnama, underscores the commitment to driving Indonesia's creative economy to new heights. Hamzah Assuudy Lubis emphasized that sustaining and promoting Indonesian products internationally requires the active involvement of students abroad.
The bio link s.id platform emerged as a strategic digital solution for this mission. "Through this collaboration, PPI Dunia aims to offer students a platform to introduce and market Indonesian products and services to a global audience," said Hamzah.
Arief Affandy, representing PPI Dunia's Information and Communication Division, highlighted that the s.id microsites provide a technological edge in digitally presenting information related to PPI Dunia's community activities. "Microsites on s.id offer features that complement our digital initiatives, providing comprehensive and up-to-date information about our community," added Arief.
M. Shidiq Purnama emphasized that bio link s.id serves as more than just a promotional tool; it becomes a catalyst for students and alumni to construct a robust professional digital image.
"Through the s.id platform, students and alumni can leverage our services for personal branding, showcasing official resumes, and presenting their skills and expertise digitally," explained Shidiq.
This collaboration sets the stage for various joint activities between PPI Dunia and bio link s.id. These include educating Indonesian students abroad, connected through the Indonesian Student Association, about the bio link s.id platform. Furthermore, the platform will be offered for free to students looking to enhance their personal branding, CVs, and expertise using the Indonesian-made s.id platform.
The digital business card feature, facilitating the conversion from a microsite into a physical card for information-sharing with NFC card features, adds another layer of innovation to this collaboration.
Ultimately, the PPI Dunia and Bio Link collaboration aims not only to heighten global awareness of Indonesia's creative economic potential but also to empower students and alumni, enabling them to compete successfully on the international stage. This synergy becomes a testament to Indonesia's commitment to fostering a digital-savvy generation capable of leaving a mark in the global arena. (*)
