HIMPSI and the Faculty of Psychology UIN Jakarta Discuss Maritime Psychology in Seminar Towards Golden Indonesia 2045.

Harun Nasution Auditorium, UIN Online News - The Indonesian Psychological Association (HIMPSI) and the Faculty of Psychology at UIN Jakarta held a seminar titled "Maritime Psychology Session: Harmony Segment - The World Maritime Axis Towards Golden Indonesia 2045." The seminar, attended by UIN Jakarta academics, HIMPSI officials, and colleagues from the Indonesian Navy (TNI AL), took place at the Harun Nasution Auditorium on Monday, May 20, 2024.

"Since 2014, the President of Indonesia has emphasized the need to focus on enhancing the maritime axis as a crucial aspect for the nation's progress," said Andik Matulessy, M.Si, Psychologist, Chairman of HIMPSI, in his opening remarks. Dr. Andik also mentioned that this seminar is a realization of the MoU signed between UIN Jakarta and HIMPSI.

The maritime axis is a concept introduced by the President of Indonesia, aiming to position Indonesia as the world's maritime axis. This strategic idea includes ensuring inter-island connectivity, developing the shipping and fishing industries, improving sea transportation, and focusing on maritime security. The global maritime axis vision sees Indonesia as a strong and advanced maritime nation that can contribute to world peace and security.

The rector's address, represented by the Vice-Rector for Academic Affairs at UIN Jakarta, Prof. Dr. Ahmad Tholabi., S.Ag., S.H., M.H., M.A., highlighted Indonesia's potential to develop the maritime axis due to its geographical location, abundant natural resources, beautiful marine tourism spots, and other factors.

The first panel discussion session focused on "Indonesia as the World Maritime Axis: Opportunities and Challenges from a Psychological Perspective." Speakers included Andik Matulessy, M.Si, Psychologist; Dr. Wiwin Dwi Handayani, S.Psi., M.Si; and Prof. Bambang Suryadi.

The Assistant for Maritime Potential to the Chief of Naval Staff (Aspotmar Kasal), Dr. Hermanto, S.E., M.M. CSBA., CTMP., presented "Maritime Potential from a Sea Resilience Perspective." He emphasized the importance of Indonesia's sea resilience since it serves as an international shipping route, given that Indonesian waters border ten countries.

The seminar concluded with a keynote speech by the Acting Head of the Marine and Fisheries Education Center, Yayan Hikmayani, S.Psi., M.Si., on "Blue Economy to Realize Indonesia as the World Maritime Axis Towards Golden Indonesia 2045."

According to Yayan, the demand for food increases with the growing population. "From various literature, fish significantly contributes to nutrition compared to other livestock," he noted.

In addition to the "Maritime Psychology Session: Harmony Segment," there will be a "Maritime Psychology Session: Innovation Segment" held online on May 25, 2024.
