Indonesia is a big nation. Indonesia is big not only because of its population of more than 250 million people. Indonesia is big not because it has around 17,000 islands. Indonesia is big not only because of its abundant resources but it has stood the test of time and because it is able to remain united until we reach our 72nd anniversary of independence.
The statements were made by President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo in the State Address on the Occasion of the 72nd Anniversary of the Proclamation of Independence of the Republic of Indonesia Before the Joint Session of the Regional Representatives Council of the Republic of Indonesia and the House of Representatives of the Republic of Indonesia.
