Jokowi told a briefing with foreign correspondents that the central bank would remain independent, when asked about the recommendations, adding he had no plans to issue an emergency decree to change BI’s role.The panel also recommended to parliament BI be allowed to buy government bonds in the primary market and purchase zero-interest bonds under certain economic conditions.BI is currently allowed to conduct such operations only in response to the coronavirus pandemic.The central bank has pledged to purchase US$28 billion of government bonds, while relinquishing interest payments this year, but officials have stressed the policy would be one-off amid concerns about inflation.When asked if the so-called “burden-sharing” scheme would continue, Jokowi said: “If our economic growth reaches 4.5 percent-5.5 percent (next year), maybe not in 2022”.The president said he would be content even if Indonesia continued to post negative growth by the third quarter as long as it recovered from the 5.32 percent contraction in the second quarter.He did not give a growth forecast for 2020, but Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati has forecast GDP will be within a range of -1.1 percent to 0.2 percent.Topics : Indonesian President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo pledged on Tuesday that the country’s central bank would remain independent, a day after a panel of experts advising parliament recommended that government ministers be given voting rights at policy meetings.In proposals that could amount to the biggest shake-up of the monetary authority in two decades, the panel also suggested economic growth and employment be added to Bank Indonesia’s (BI) mandate among other amendments to Indonesia’s central bank law.Analysts have warned the proposals could raise questions over BI’s independence and Indonesia’s track record of prudent macroeconomic policymaking, although some also said reform was needed to ensure BI could meet new challenges and support Southeast Asia’s biggest economy during the pandemic.
PA Physician General Dr. Rachel Levine Convenes “It’s On Us PA” Campus Sexual Assault Prevention Roundtable at the University of Pittsburgh It’s On Us PA Harrisburg, PA – Pennsylvania Physician General Dr. Rachel Levine today convened an “It’s On Us PA” roundtable discussion at the University of Pittsburgh to solicit feedback from education and community stakeholders on the role of administrators, students, community members and policymakers in combating sexual violence in schools and on college campuses.Last month Governor Wolf announced “It’s On Us PA” – the first statewide campaign to address sexual assault in schools and on campuses. Building on the national “It’s On Us” movement launched by President Obama and Vice President Biden in 2014, “It’s On Us PA” engages education leaders as well as students, teachers, families, and communities to make a personal and public pledge to play a role in preventing and responding effectively to sexual violence. Since the launch less than a month ago, over 200 people – including representation from over 100 schools across the commonwealth – have taken the pledge and signed on to the campaign.“It is on all of us to ensure that Pennsylvania’s students receive a quality education without having to worry about the threat of sexual assault in our schools and on our college campuses,” said Dr. Levine. “Governor Wolf is committed to created schools that teach – and ensuring that those schools also provide a safe and nurturing environment for our students from kindergarten through college. Sexual assault should never be part of any student’s education experience – and I am proud to join Governor Wolf and the over 200 Pennsylvanians that have already taken the “It’s On Us PA” pledge.”Dr. Levine was joined at the event by State Senator Jay Costa, State Representative Dan Frankel, as well as representatives from the PA Department of Education, PA Commission for Women, PA Action Against Rape, Pittsburgh Council on Higher Education, Duquesne University, University of Pittsburgh, California University of PA, Indiana University of PA, Community College of Allegheny County, Carlow University, Chatham University, South Allegheny School District, Avonworth School District, Bethel Park School District, Allegheny Intermediate Unit, Woodland Hills School District, Baldwin-Whitehall School District, Northgate School District and South Fayette Township School District.“We all share in the responsibility to keep students safe and prevent sexual assaults on college campuses,” said Senator Costa. “I’m proud to be part of the “It’s On Us” campaign and see it as an opportunity to further open lines of communication and build bridges between our students and the community. While these discussions won’t be easy, they couldn’t be more important.”“I’m proud to join Physician General Levine for this important roundtable discussion in the heart of my legislative district,” said Representative Frankel. “President Obama and Governor Wolf have shown great leadership in working to combat the epidemic of campus sexual assaults and I believe the “It’s On Us PA” campaign is going to make a real difference in the lives and safety of our students across the Commonwealth.”Today’s event is an important step in a year of action, in which the Wolf Administration is working with community leaders and stakeholders from across the commonwealth to develop state-level policy recommendations to address the pressing issue of sexual assault in our schools and postsecondary institutions.# # #Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf February 22, 2016 SHARE Email Facebook Twitter
New Delhi: Tigresses defeated Cheetahs 2-1 in their U-17 Women’s Championship opener as Amisha Baxla scored and assisted another to help her team over the line in Kalyani, West Bengal on Monday.Priya PV’s Tigresses did the damage in just the first 10 minutes of the game and Bembem Devi’s Cheetahs could never recover from that early blow eve as they grew into the game despite getting a goal back through Malavika P. This was the first game of the one-week tournament for both teams. Earlier in the day, Lionesses kickstarted the tournament with a 3-0 crushing victory over the Panthers, where Priyanka Sujeesh Pottekkat shone for Alex Ambrose’s side.The tournament is aimed at helping India select players for the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup India 2020.Tigresses were extremely quick off the blocks and that’s exactly what benefitted them later as despite having a second half where they had no real control over the game, they were able to eke out a victory.For the Cheetahs, their lack of focus in the initial minutes of the match cost them and while they were able to take control of the game later, the lack of a final pass and finishing left them without any points.For the Tigresses, apart from Amisha, Aveka Singh had a brilliant game in the midfield. Her positional sense and her ability to find spaces was for everyone to see.The Tigresses got to business as early as the third minute when Amisha received the ball on the right and ran up to put the ball past the keeper with a good finish.Just three minutes later, Amisha was at work once more as he ran up on the right, having received a good through paas. Drawing two defenders towards herself, she passed the ball in the middle for Karen Estrocio, who sent the keeper the wrong way to slot the ball into the right bottom corner.Post the intensity of the first 10 minutes, the game slowed down a bit as the Cheetahs managed to take some control and were able to keep the ball more and thwart some advances from the Tigresses.The ball mostly remained in the midfield for the rest of the first half as both teams struggled to create clear-cut chances and went into the break with the Tigresses leading 2-0.Cheetahs started the second half with more urgency as Malavika and Flani Costa showed pace and skills up front to create a few chances.What did not work for the Cheetahs was the alert defence of the Tigresses and that they were being closed down well. The Tigresses lost much control of the ball in the second half but their shape at the back remained intact because of which, the Cheetahs failed to make too many inroads.In the 67th minute, Tigresses made the mistake of an extremely poor clearance and Malavika pounced on the ball and just lobbed it towards the goal. The keeper tried to catch the ball overhead but it slipped out and rolled into the net.Despite the lifeline, Cheetahs could not make too much of the momentum as the Tigresses held on for a victory.After Day 1 of the tournament, both Lionesses and Tigresses have three points but the former takes the top spot in the table with a goal difference of 3 in comparison to 1 for the Tigresses.Both the Cheetahs and Panthers have no points but Bembem’s team is third courtesy a better goal difference of (-)1 compared to (-)3 for the Panthers.
