Penyatuan Zona Waktu Dilakukan Tahun Ini



Penyatuan Zona Waktu Dilakukan 
Tahun Ini
Current Time Zones in Indonesia
REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- Pemerintah akan menerapkan kebijakan penyatuan zona waktu pada tahun ini. Langkah ini dilakukan untuk menyesuaikan jam perdagangan di kawasan.

Menteri Koordinator Perekonomian, Hatta Rajasa, menyatakan kebijakan zona waktu telah disarankan oleh master plan percepatan dan perluasan ekonomi Indonesia (MP3EI). "Presiden setuju agar zona waktu disatukan. Sekarang sedang kita perdalam lagi," katanya, akhir pekan lalu. 

Menurutnya, bila zona waktu dijadikan satu, maka diharapkan terjadi efisiensi dan efektifitas di kawasan timur dan barat Indonesia. "Kalau sekarang kan di Bagian Timur sudah 2 jam bekerja, di barat baru mau mulai. Ini kurang pas. Jadi sekarang kita masuk ke GMT+8," katanya. Dengan begitu nantinya, wilayah barat dan timur Indonesia akan mengikuti waktu wilayah bagian tengah.

Menurutnya, kebijakan ini akan segera dirilis pada tahun ini. "Kita percepat karena ini akan menjadi masalah bila tidak segera dilakukan," katanya. Selanjutnya, pemerintah pun akan melakukan sosialisasi. Sejauh ini, lanjutnya, hampir tidak ada wilayah yang menolak wacana ini, namun, intinya adalah melakukan sosialisasi.

One Time Zone Could Be in Place by Independence Day, Official Declares
Kunradus Aliandu | March 13, 2012
The government has asked its institutions to start conducting simulations in preparation for the introduction of a single time zone for the entire country, with the target date for the move being Independence Day on Aug. 17. 

Edib Muslim, spokesman for the Indonesian Economic Development Committee (KP3EI), said that all of the ministries and institutions contacted responded in a positive way. 

“The decision to change the time zones will only need a presidential decision and does not need approval from the [House of Representatives],” Edib said. 

Edib announced that under the proposed plan, Indonesia would leave its triple-time zone division and become a single time zone at GMT+8. 

Indonesia’s current westernmost time zone is GMT+7, its central is GMT+8 and its easternmost is GMT+9. 

He said that the ministries and government institutions had each been asked to prepare “a simple model” for the conversion to the single time zone. 

Edib said the country had experienced time zone changes in the past and if applied, the single time zone would be the fifth such change for the country. 

“Since its independence, Indonesia has experienced this four times,” he said. 

Indonesia gained independence on Aug. 17, 1945. 

Records also show that during the Japanese occupation, between 1942 and 1945, Indonesia was turned into a single time zone matching Japan’s, at GMT+9. Under the Dutch colonial administration, Indonesia was divided into six time zones, with each being 30 minutes apart. 

Edib said that turning the country into a single time zone would lead to savings and better economic productivity. “This would have its benefits in an economy that is slipping because of [rising] fuel prices,” he said. 

Edib said the move to one time zone would eliminate problems arising from differences in business hours between the various zones in the country. 

The KP3EI implements the Master Plan for the Acceleration and Expansion of Indonesia’s Economic Development (MP3EI), which aims to transform the national economy. 

It is chaired by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono. Hatta Rajasa , the chief economics minister, is the executive chairman.
