New Normal of the Economy
Looking at the various indicators, it would be difficult for the economic recovery to take place quickly (V-shape), rather it would take a longer time (U-shape).
Preparations for “new normal” continue in various aspects. Health Ministerial Decree No. HK.01.07/MENKES/328/2020 regulates health protocols in offices and industrial estates that must be followed by all parties. Finance Ministerial Decree No. 223/2020 regulates the implementation of flexibility at workplaces. Likewise, a circular was issued by the Administrative and Bureaucratic Reform Ministry concerning the work system of state institutions in the New Normal Order.
Companies like Twitter have announced that working from home is no longer temporary but permanent. The adoption of strict health protocols and new ways of working is only a symptom of more fundamental changes, namely starting from behavior changes to economic structures that include consumption, distribution and production.
