Indonesia Assumes G20 Presidency in 2022
Prior to the closing ceremony of G20 Summit, Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi handed over a hammer to President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo as a symbolic handover of G20 presidency from Italy to Indonesia.
“I congratulate Italy for successfully carrying out G20 Presidency in 2021. Indonesia is honored to continue the G20 Presidency in 2022,” President Jokowi said in La Nuvola, Rome, Italy, Sunday (31/10).
For the first time since the G20 was founded in 1999, Indonesia has been appointed to assume the G20 Presidency starting from 1 December 2021 to 30 November 2022.
President Jokowi further said Indonesian Presidency will adopt the theme ‘Recover Together, Recover Stronger’ to encourage joint efforts for world economic recovery. Inclusive, people-centered, environmentally friendly, and sustainable growth is the main commitment of Indonesia as the Chair of G20.
“Those efforts must be carried out in extraordinary ways, especially through a stronger global collaboration, and relentless innovation. The G20 must be the motor of ecosystem development that drives the collaboration and innovation,” he added.
In addition, the President invited the attending world leaders to continue the discussion at Indonesian G20 Summit which will be held on 30-31 October 2022 in Bali.
“We will host Your Excellencies in the open air, on the beautiful stretch of Bali beaches, which inspires innovative ideas for the productivity of G20 in the future. See you in Indonesia. I Thank you,” President Jokowi remarked. (BPMI SETPRES/UN) (GWH/LW)
