SUBJECT: INDONESIAN PARTICIPANTS FOR APEC SEMINAR ON
PANDEMIC EXERCISES
REF: State 111495
1. This is an action request; see para 3.
2. Three different Government of Indonesia (GOI) agencies
are deeply involved in the control of avian influenza (AI).
The National Committee on Avian Influenza (KOMNAS) serves as
the national coordinating entity. The Ministry of Health is
the agency responsible for disease control in the human
population, while the Ministry of Agriculture is responsible
for disease control in the animal population. All three
need capacity building and would benefit from exposure to
APEC member economies' AI control plans in the August 16-17
Singapore seminar on Pandemic Exercises.
3. We accordingly recommend that the U.S. fund a
representative from KOMNAS, as well GOI experts familiar
with both the human and animal sides of AI to participate in
the seminar. We recommend the following individuals:
Dr. Bayu Krisnamutki
Executive Secretary for the National Committee on Avian
Influenza Management and Pandemic Alert
Coordinating Ministry for Economy
Jl. Lapangan Banteng Timur No. 2-4, 6th Floor
Phone: 62 21 352-1941
Fax: 62 21 352-1909
Dr. Tri Satya Putri Naipospos
Secretary to the National Committee on Avian Influenza
SIPDIS
Management and Pandemic Alert
Coordinating Ministry for Economy
Jl. Lapangan Banteng Timur No. 2-4, 6th Floor
Phone: 62 21 352 1941
Fax: 62 21 352 1909
Note: Naipospos was our top interlocutor in the Ministry of
Agriculture until late 2005 and retains close relationships
with key Ministry staffers.
Dr. I. Nyoman Kandun
Director General for Diseases Control and Environmental
Health
Ministry of Health
Jl. Percetakan Negara No. 29
Phone: 62 21 420-9930
Fax: 62 21 420-7807
4. We note that August 17 is Indonesian Independence Day and
the start of a five-day weekend for many Indonesians. This
may make it difficult to recruit a GOI delegation for the
seminar. We will nonetheless strongly encourage Indonesian
representation.
