MIT Sloan School of Management, University of Indonesia, and the Jakarta-based Sinar Harapan Group will jointly sponsor an unprecedented meeting of leaders from the private and public sectors in Bali December 7-8, 2003, seeking to achieve sustainable advancement in Indonesia through improving the quality of life of the average Indonesian.

Seeking to re-establish trust among divergent sectors of Indonesian society, "United in Diversity" will create a series of educational sessions, workshops and research endeavors in order to revitalize the Indonesian economy and elevate its standing in the international community.

Star-Studded Line Up

The two days of meetings will include a welcome address by Indonesian President Megawati Soekarnoputri; a keynote speech by Mr. James D. Wolfensohn of the World Bank; an address by former Minister of Finance for Indonesia, Mr. Frans Seda; a taped broadcast prepared especially for the gathering from Mr. Nelson Mandela and Mr. David Rockefeller; and a memorable "Artists For A Night" gathering at the Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park on Sunday, December 7, 2003.

Artists for a Night

An impressive group of international media and entertainment personalities are expected to be on hand for the event to be held atop the Bukit Peninsula, affording views of the oceans to either side of Bali. Over 200 participants will partake in an evening of art ritual.

Choreographed by internationally renowned Balinese artists, Mr. Made Wianta, each participant will be asked to inscribe a poem, phrase or drawing providing their interpretation of "United in Diversity" for eventual permanent transcription onto a stone surface. The evening will also feature joint prayers and meditation, a dinner, and an address by President Megawati Soekarnoputri.

Conference sessions and workshops will be centered at the Bali International Convention Center.
