You will not find Kota Kasablanka in Morocco. But you will find this year’s Conference on Indonesian Foreign Policy (CIFP) in Kota Kasablanka, Jakarta, on Oct. 20 — he 2018 edition of Ambassador Dino Djalal’s amazing annual gathering on Indonesian foreign policy. It is a unique event. Thousands of young Indonesians are expected to attend. Attendance will be free and participants will be active, as if to echo Indonesia’s “free and active” foreign policy. Speakers and listeners will freely and actively convey and consider diverse views and ideas.
