President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh,

Good morning,

May peace be upon us all.

There are 11 locations in industrial estates and factories throughout the country (of which the vaccination drive is being held). And this morning I inspect (the vaccination drive) at PT Komatsu, in Jakarta.

I am glad that vaccination for third dose, the booster one, has started. I hope that production activity in industries/factories will not be disrupted in the future since the workers have received booster dose so the workers can give more power to the production sector. I hope that the booster vaccination drive for industrial sector can be continued and carried out in other factories to protect employees from COVID-19 transmission.

That concludes my statement. You may continue the vaccination drive.

Is there anyone from Batam? Please, Batam, the floor is yours.

Representative of Kabil Industrial Park, Batam

We would like to express our highest gratitude to Mr. President from Kabil Industrial Park of Batam Island. We are the industrial area that specializes in the oil support industry.
