Hundreds of Indonesian Migrant Workers (PMI) who are members of the Hong Kong ISP (Start Stock Investor) organization hold a monthly Kopdar (Land Coffee) event in Tsim Sha Tsui, Sunday (16/6/2019).
The ISP, which is a financial organization formed in 2018, is a forum for its members to learn to invest in stocks and increase their economic power in Indonesia.
“We always say that Indonesia is controlled by foreigners. But we ourselves don’t want to control Indonesia,” said Diana, deputy chairman of the Hong Kong ISP to Migran Pos, Sunday (16/06/19)
According to Diana, apart from being a way to show a sense of nationalism, ISPs are expected to be able to provide education so that PMI is no longer easily ensnared by fraudulent investments.
“Personally, this is a legal investment. There is legal protection from Indonesia, also clear. I logged in from 2017-2019. Alhamdulillah, I have enjoyed the benefits,” Diana said, Sunday (16/6/2019).
Diana further said that to join an ISP there is no registration fee required and you can follow guidance through the WhatsApp application. This is an anticipation and a solution because PMIs often encounter obstacles on holidays to hold regular community meetings every month.
The ISP itself was established after a seminar with the Financial Services Authority (OJK), Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX), Pegadaian, Banks, and BPJS Employment conducted by the Indonesian Consulate General on September 29, 2018 last year.
