between India and Indonesia were built by traders who sailed with the monsoon winds This led to a great cultural engagement between the two countries In any 21st century partnership the role of trade and investment is paramount Bilateral trade between India and Indonesia crossed the $20 billion mark in 2012-13 Broadly put Indonesian exports to India are about $15bn and Indian exports to Indonesia are about $5 bn At the same time Indian investments in Indonesia which began in the early 1970s at a time when Indian overseas foreign direct investment was not widely known have expanded rapidly and are currently pegged at over $15bn with a similar amount in the pipeline The overall engagement between India and Indonesia — about $35bn at present with a trade target of $25bn and FDI inflows expected to grow further — certainly looks robust But neither country is in the top-five trading partner category of the other and as such this relationship needs greater nurturing so that its natural momentum can be enhanced An interesting feature of this bilateral trade is the dependence of Indonesia on commodities and the dependence of India on manufactured goods The existing commerce is marked by consistent trade promotion by India in the growing Indonesian market However an Indonesian push to promote its trade and products in India is very limited and largely based on Indian invitations The main issue is that bilateral trade is largely on autopilot with little guidance or support from governmental action on either side The linkage of trade to investment is largely confined to the coal sector As B2B relationships emerge one can expect more Indonesian companies to look favourably at the opportunities in India under the Make in India programme which is now well- publicised in Indonesia So what are the steps that India and Indonesia can take to improve their bilateral engagement My study of the market in both countries indicates the following First a more regular G2G contact by activating existing inter-governmental mechanisms like the trade ministers’ forum the energy forum and the high-level task force on economic matters on a priority basis These fora should not merely be at the level of government They must always have business components present in order to make them more comprehensive and more effective compared to regular G2G contact groups Second while both the Kamar Dagang dan Industri (Kadin) the Indonesian chamber of commerce and Asosiasi Pengusaha Indonesia (Apindo) the employers federation view India as an important trading partner they are still looking for ways and means to have a consistent and productive engagement with their Indian counterparts For instance while the Kadin India committee has many Indian companies there are yet just a few Indonesian companies in the mix As such it largely focuses on the existing trade instead of developing it further There is a need for greater engagement between the business people on both sides This will also provide greater understanding and build confidence that in turn will generate ideas and opportunities for increasing business interaction Last Indian and Indonesian CEOs rarely meet at the highest levels Even the CEOs’ forum has not taken off because there’s little mutual interest among the CEOs nominated to the forum by both countries Trying to organise a meeting of the CEOs forum too has been difficult because of the low interest shown in such an event by most of the nominees This is essentially a manifestation of the lack of understanding at the highest B2B levels Thus a recasting of the CEOs’ forum is imperative and the participation of senior people in business conferences in India and Indonesia is necessary Between 2013 and 2015 the three apex chambers of commerce in India — the CII Ficci and Assocham — brought more than one delegation to Indonesia in order to pursue this very objective However a delegation of Indonesian CEOs is not frequently seen in

who is making her debut feature film “Bombay Rose” which has been selected by Work In Progress Lab of 10th NFDC Film Bazaar said that the film market goes by numbers when they invest which is unfair at times “You know though one of my films ‘Printed Rainbow’ has become a part of film schools’ curriculum activity and always received appreciation in special screenings getting a commercial release of animation film is such a task Market goes by numbers So even though I told them (distributors/financiers) that my films are well received by people they would ask me if they bought the tickets to watch the film” said Gitanjali After winning 28 awards along with prestigious awards like Kodak Short Film Award and Young Critics Award for her debut animation short “Printed Rainbow” (2006) and travelling through the world with her film Gitanjali observed how not only in the west but in India also people are receptive to animation films Even then it is a huge struggle to get a release on mainstream market here in India she said “But unless you are releasing for the wider audience how will they go to buy a ticket and watch the film” she asked After finishing study from Sir J J Institute of Applied Art Mumbai she made short animated films like “Orange” “Printed Rainbow” “Shorts” “True Love Story” to name a few In fact “True Love Story” was one of 10 selected short films at Critics’ Week at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival However scripting a feature film is very different and she says she struggled a lot through the process “I was working on my film ‘Bombay Rose’ all alone for four years and was going nowhere When my script went through the NFDC screenwriters’ lab and I got mentorship under some experts here it is interesting how the story shaped up well and producers show their interest when I approach them afterwards” said Gitanjali Indian cinema has raised itself to a world class level but animation is a genre that is yet to find acceptability at home animator and filmmaker Geetanjali Rao says Asked about how different Film Bazaar screenwriters’ lab is from the regular script labs she said that the process should be once the script is developed it should be seen by the producer who takes it to the next level “While in the rest of labs that process takes lot of time here it happens without further delay once the script is selected That saves time and makes the creative and marketing process faster” she said Gitanjali who expects to finish ‘Bombay Rose’ within two years says: “It is basically a love story between a migrant boy and a girl where the Kashmiri rose seller boy falls in love and gives a rose to a gajra seller girl everyday on Juhu beach As the boy collects the rose from a graveyard another story unveils there who keeps the rose at the graveyard for her beloved So that is how various layers gets unveils through their love story and the city life of Mumbai and its dwellers” For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian

Bill 2014 on GST has already been passed by the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha The Bill seen as the biggest tax reform in a long time needs to be ratified by at least 15 state legislatures before the President can notify the GST Council which will decide the new tax rate and other issues Shiv Sena BJP’s ally has demanded direct compensation to BMC and a legal provision to sanction it “The Sena’s stand has been very clear that we will not allow things that erode the autonomy of corporations” Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray said Sunday in Party function Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis PTI So it would be interesting to see what stand does Shiv Sena MLAs take in the Assembly and Council MNS President Raj Thackeray Sunday spoke out against the implementation of the GST regime claiming it was an attempt to foist central rule on on institutions such as the BMC “The issue with GST is how should money be collected and distributed The ideal way would be to allow corporations to collect money who would send it to the state and then the Centre However now everything is being centralised with all powers with the Centre If these corporations do not get money from the Centre on time they will collapse” Raj Thackeray said during a press conference in Thane The Centre has set a deadline of April 2017 for its rollout Assam was the first state to ratify the Bill followed by Bihar In the 288-member Maharashtra assembly the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Shiv Sena (SS) alliance has a majority of 185 With the opposition Congress and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) in favor of GST the state legislature is set to ratify the bill unanimously Shiv Sena leaders have been vocal saying that abolition of Octroi Duty after the introduction of GST should not hamper the finances of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) But though the Shiv Sena has raised objections to GST The Shiv Sena claims that the BMC will stand to lose around Rs 7000 crore per annum that it generates from the octroi collection The Sena which rules the BMC with the BJP has demanded direct compensation for the loss of octroi Ruling alliance partner Shiv Sena and Opposition NCP are busy discussing with their respective legislators the GST ratification bill which will come up before the Maharashtra legislature on 29 August A source in the NCP said the party’s apprehension was that the new tax regime would fuel inflation in respect of certain goods and services The two Houses of the state legislature would meet for a special session on 29 August here and pass a one-line resolution with regard to the ratification of the Constitution Amendment Bill on Goods and Service Tax (GST) Sena has reservations in particular about the compensation to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) which would be losing Rs 7500-crore octroi annually largely from the the imported crude oil after GST rolls out Maharashtra Finance Minister Sudhir Mungantiwar had said that octroi compensation would be taken care of when the GST governing council frames the rules NCP had a meeting of its legislators at the official residence of Leader of Opposition in the Legislative Council Dhananjay Munde on 28 August Former Finance Ministers from NCP Jayant Patil Dilip Walse-Patil and Sunil Tatkare briefed the legislators Doubts still existed on whether the traders will pass on the tax concessions they would be getting due to the unified tax regime to the consumers he said Senior Congress leader and former state chief minister Prithviraj Chavan has said there are still some concerns which they want the Centre to address Chavan said "We have some concerns particularly regarding the Revenue Neutral Rate (RNR) or the Rate of Tax of GST We want the tax be less than 18 percent otherwise it will lead to huge inflation and it will be an anti-people measure There are some other concerns such as the Dispute Resolution Mechanism etc and I am sure that the government will address those issues"
