Culturally, the people of Indonesia are inseparable from the sea since ancient times. No wonder, we often see Indonesian children proudly singing ‘My ancestor is a sailor.’ The maritime traditions in Indonesia are passed down from generation to generation, cherished, and accurately preserved to date. Each of the 1,340 ethnic groups which inhabit its many islands possesses their own unique traditions, with a culture based on respect for and understanding of the sea as a divine gift from God and part of everyday life. This contributes further to the wealth of Indonesia’s maritime cultural heritage. From the ocean depths to the surface, Indonesia has many tangible and intangible potential resources, biological and non-biological, renewable and non-renewable. These potential resources include biodiversity, minerals and energy, maritime industry, and its support services, sea transportation, environmental services, and maritime culture. The potential and greatness of Indonesia’s marine and coastal resources have really created a ‘Blue Heaven’ on earth. These potentials are major assets for national development towards a prosperous Indonesia and prosperous world.
