Giving 3 Lectures in Brawijaya University, Malang (29 April – 2 May 2019)

I had a chance to give three lectures in faculty of Economics and Business, Brawijaya University, in Malang, Indonesia. All lectures in bahasa Indonesia.

Titles of lecturers are as follows:

– Fiscal Decentralization and Local Government Finance: Negative and Positive (29 April 2019)
– Modern History of Economic Development in Japan: Comparison with Indonesia (30 April 2019)
– Local Development Strategies: OVOP (One Village One Product) Movement Approach for context of Local Development in Indonesia (2 May 2019)

Faculty of Economics and Business, Brawijaya University, conducts ‘three in one program’ combining of lecturers from Brawijaya University, private sector and foreign country. This is the first lecture by foreigner in this program.

About 150 students have attended my lecture series and I got some interesting questions and comments on my contents. It is very exciting experience for me to give lectures only in bahasa Indonesia. Very sincere thanks to Faculty of Economics and Business, Brawijaya University.

Visit Brawijaya University, Malang (14 March 2019)

I visited Faculty of Economics and Business, Brawijaya University, Malang, in 14 March 2019.

The Faculty conducts 3 in 1 program in its academic course by three lecturers from Brawijaya University, private sector, and foreigner.

I was asked to be the foreign guest lecturer in this 3 in 1 program by the Faculty. Maybe in next April.

I appreciated this and suggested three subjects as my topics; local economic development policies including OVOP movement, current economic and social issues in Japan, and field work with community development facilitation methods.

I hope I would make some meaningful contribution to the university students in this opportunity.
