These are some of the developments we're following today:

  • This morning, hundreds of workers at the Jakarta International Container Terminal (JICT) went on strike, bringing cargo handling operations to a complete stop. If it continues, the strike will reportedly cause a loss of Rp 200 billion per week.
  • The Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) and the Gerindra Party are now engaged in a fight following a statement made by Gerindra Deputy Chairman Arif Poyuono who likened the PDI-P to the disbanded Indonesian Communist Party (PKI). The PDI-P is mulling over filing a lawsuit.
  • In Manila, foreign ministers of ASEAN countries and several major powers are holding talks on a number of issues, but will likely focus more on North Korea. Earlier, on the eve of the meeting, Philippine President Rodrigue Duterte called North Korean leader Kim Jong-un a "maniac."
