Statement by

H.E. Mr. Hadi Poernomo

Chairman of the Audit Board of the Republic of Indonesia

On Agenda Item:

 Integrated and Coordinated Implementation of and Follow-up to the Outcomes of the Major United Nations Conferences and Summits in the Economic, Social and Related Fields; Follow-up to the Outcome of the Millennium Summit; and United Nations Reform: Measures and Proposal

68th Session of the United Nations General Assembly

New York, 20 November 2013

 

 

Mr. President,

I would like to express my delegation’s gratitude  to the Secretary-General  for his comprehensive reports  pertaining to the agenda items  we are deliberating.

In line with the reports , Indonesia believes that  states have the primary obligation to ensure the promotion of the rights to water and sanitation  by enacting relevant policies and legislation that  uphold gender equality, vulnerable groups and anti-discrimination.

In this regard , Indonesia supports the integration of this issue into the Post-2015 Development Agenda , and looks forward to continuing efforts that  ensure the promotion of the rights to water and sanitation at the global level.

 

Mr. President,

On the issue of population and development , we note the importance of  the follow-up to the Programme of Action  of the International Conference on Population and Development beyond 2014. We welcome the plan to convene a Special Session during its sixty-ninth session.

Indonesia is of the view that  the issue of population is essential , as it affects  the course of national economic development. In this context , the assessment of the status of implementation of the ICPD Programme of Action  during the forty-seventh session  of the Commission on Population and Development in 2014 would be crucial to provide  a solid foundation for the success of the Special Session.

On the issues of promoting participation of women in development , Indonesia is of the view that  gender equality and women empowerment is an essential component for the development  and needs to be integrated into the Post-2015 Development Agenda.

In relation to the UN Women Strategic Plan 2014-2017 , Indonesia wishes to reiterate its expectation that  the Plan would serve beyond output and indicators of achievements for UN Women. It needs to identify the commitment and provision of UN Women  in responding to the various challenges being faced by countries in line with the development priorities and needs of individual countries.

 

Mr. President,

Indonesia supports continued efforts  to ensure that the United Nations develops into a more credible and accountable body. The United Nations General Assembly plays an important role  to promote global budget transparency  by setting accountability standards  throughout the United Nations system.

Indonesia supports the efforts to strengthen the UN's ability to fully implement its mandate and to ensure the effective implementation of all UN programs. Reform efforts must reflect the unique character  of the United Nations. In this regard , efforts to promote greater accountability  in the United Nations system, including through its internal and external oversight bodies, need to be continuously supported  and enhanced by all relevant stakeholders.

Budget transparency and accountability  are increasingly seen as an important precondition for effective governance. In addition to generating economic benefits , it also functions as a political expression of good governance.

To sustain good governance  and rigorous budget accountability , we would like to emphasize  the importance of having available accurate data and information  in an efficient, cost-effective manner through information technology (IT). 

We are pleased that  Indonesia has established a national strategy to integrate outputs of IT systems.  By this integration , outputs of all IT systems  are stored at a national data center. Those data outputs  can be on-line accessed , linked and matched  by the Supreme Audit Institution. This mechanism, known as an electronic audit (e-audit), has been successful  in systematically preventing and eradicating corruption. It is indeed  very helpful  in our national efforts  to accomplish the Indonesian Dream  of a zero tolerant and corruption- free country.

Strengthening SAI is also essential  in promoting good governance. Efficient, accountable, effective and transparent public administration  has a vital role to play  in the implementation of the internationally agreed development goals , including the MDGs.

In this context , we urge the full implementation of  the UN resolution 66/209  on Promoting the efficiency, accountability, effectiveness and transparency of public administration  by strengthening SAI. The resolution is also crucial  in enhancing cooperation  between the UN and the International Organization of SAI.

 

Mr. President,

Our leaders have adopted the Millennium Declaration  as an oath to present and future generations  to establish a world  where everyone would live in dignity, free from want and fear . As we are approaching the post MDGs period , it is our fervent hope that  the global development agenda beyond 2015  could also serve as an effective platform  in gathering the political will and momentum  behind the global effort of eradicating poverty  through sustainable growth with equity. The development agenda  should leave no one behind  by ensuring equal opportunity and common prosperity for all.  

 

I thank you.
