1st International Seminar Family and Consumer Issues in ASIA (ISFC 2018)

4th September, IPB International Convention Center (IICC) Bogor, Indonesia



To face the challenges and problems that occur in Indonesia, an effort is needed to prepare quality resources. The success of preparing this resource cannot be separated from roles and functions within the family. Families have an important role in shaping quality resources. Various challenges that occur in the family today are the level of welfare is still low, educational facilities are still limited, child issues such as juvenile delinquency, bullying, and so forth. Also, the impact of the development of the era and technology affect the functioning of the family. Family functioning is important to be optimized to achieve family resilience and prosperity. In Indonesia, the family is also a strategic issue of development that gets the attention of various parties. In terms of policy, Law No. 52 of 2009 on Population and Family Development has become the legal umbrella for family development in Indonesia where the government and local governments have an obligation to carry out family development policies through fostering family resilience and welfare so as to support Indonesian families to be able to perform family functions optimally. Indonesia as a region with rapid development, family issues, children, and consumers in Asia, of course, becomes an interesting and strategic issue.

Therefore, this seminar will focus on a very important theme that aims to highlight the challenges families face the existing problems, and that would come to change and improve the development of the country. For Indonesia, as one of the developing countries that are also taken into account in Asia, the stabilization of family development policies and programs by learning from several neighboring countries is, of course, a necessity. For college colleges IKK Department colleagues, the opportunity to gather together in a forum to discuss issues of family and consumers in Asia is also, of course, a necessity.
