Diaz Hendropriyono is known as a young politician who is innovative, creative, and brimming with optimism when it comes to his views on the future of Indonesia. At only 39, Diaz has been appointed as the Chairman of the Indonesian Justice and Unity Party (PKPI) for the 2018-2024 period. Diaz tells Indonesia Tatler about his views on Indonesia’s future, which will, to a greater extent, be determined by the younger generation’s positive contributions to the progress of the country.
In our video interview, Diaz explains the strategic role of Indonesia’s youth in the history of the nation’s development—for example, the nationalism ideals of Budi Utomo in 1908, the Youth Pledge in 1928, the Proclamation of Independence on August 17, 1945, right up to the reform era of 1998. It is clear that the young generation will certainly play an important role in the future, ahead of the 2019 general election, namely the legislative and presidential elections.
