Bismillahirrahmanirrahim,

Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullah wabarakatuh,

This afternoon’s limited meeting we will discuss the preparations for Christmas and 2019 New Year’s Eve. This is a routine meeting we do ahead of big days.

I just want to emphasize three things. First, the stability of food prices and the availability of basic commodities, including fuel. Second, the ease, comfort, and safety of transportation users. And the last one, providing people with a sense of security in order to maintain harmony, tolerance, unity, and the security situation that has been favourable as it is today.

I think I conclude my remarks here. You may report the preparations and please make it simple. Focused on things that really need to get attention. If there are none, I consider everything is prepared for this year’s Christmas and New Year’s Eve.(PR Division of Cabinet Secretariat)(AK/AW/YM/Naster)
