The Journal and Resource Center Of Indonesia Today

Going online has become a necessity for businesses, the media in particular, expecting to progress to the new millennium. Recent development in Indonesia shows that the Web is the future of news and information as evidenced by the increasing number of media publications available over the Internet.
As the largest English newspaper in Indonesia, The Jakarta Post has anticipated this trend and has dedicated a considerable amount of time and resources to preparing its website. We are proud to announce that the online version of our newspaper is now vailable on the Web. The Jakarta Post.com is more than just an extension of The Jakarta Post daily newspaper. As the name suggests, it also offers breaking news and a wealth of information on Indonesia. By providing up-to-date, in-depth accurate information and analyses, The Jakarta Post.com aspires to be a one-stop reference point on Indonesia that will serve both local and international audiences.

The Journal is a special, free-of-charge version of The Jakarta Post. Having in mind an international audience interested in events taking place in Indonesia, this online version of the newspaper – The Jakarta Post.com – carries local stories that appear in the printed edition, and more. To meet public demand for real-time news, The Jakarta Post.com has news flashes which are updated as each story develops.

Taking full advantage of the unlimited space available on the Web, The Jakarta Post.com also provides featured articles and special coverage that may not otherwise appear in the printed edition.
A picture often says more than words can ever tell. Our photo gallery unveils telling sights of great human interest as well as journalistic and artistic shots that have not made it into our printed edition due to space restraints.

Our Resource Center will become an important reference for anyone looking for complete and accurate information on Indonesia. Researchers and Indonesianists will benefit greatly from this facility, which no other online media in Indonesia offers.

One of the Resource Center's most interesting features is its database-formatted archives, making The Jakarta Post.com the first and only online media in Indonesia to date with this facility. So far over 50,000 news articles from our printed edition are stored in our database, dating back to June 1994. The Post is presently undertaking an ambitious endeavor to digitalize and make available its stories right through to its first edition on April 25, 1983.

The World Bank is a vital source of financial and technical assistance to developing countries around the world. Our mission is to fight poverty with passion and professionalism for lasting results and to help people help themselves and their environment by providing resources, sharing knowledge, building capacity and forging partnerships in the public and private sectors.

We are not a bank in the common sense; we are made up of two unique development institutions owned by 187 member countries: the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) and the International Development Association (IDA).

Each institution plays a different but collaborative role in advancing the vision of inclusive and sustainable globalization. The IBRD aims to reduce poverty in middle-income and creditworthy poorer countries, while IDA focuses on the world's poorest countries.

Their work is complemented by that of the International Finance Corporation (IFC), Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA) and the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID).
Together, we provide low-interest loans, interest-free credits and grants to developing countries for a wide array of purposes that include investments in education, health, public administration, infrastructure, financial and private sector development, agriculture and environmental and natural resource management.

The World Bank, established in 1944, is headquartered in Washington, D.C. We have more than 10,000 employees in more than 100 offices worldwide.

Innovating from Within

To ensure countries continue to have access to the best global expertise and cutting-edge knowledge, the World Bank Group is revising its programs to assist the poor, as well as its range of financing options, to meet pressing development priorities.

Pillars of these efforts include:

Results: Together, we are continuing to sharpen our focus on helping developing countries deliver measurable results.

Reform: New reforms at the World Bank Group are aimed at improving every aspect of our work: the way projects are designed (investment lending), how information is made available (access to information), and how our staff are deployed to best assist governments and communities (decentralization).
