The statement was delivered by Cabinet Secretary Pramono Anung in the framework of the commemoration of the 77th anniversary of proclamation of independence of the Republic of Indonesia, Wednesday (08/17).

“The world is now facing never-ending problems. Indonesia, as a major nation, the nation of fighters preserving its identity as the bearer of the state ideology of Pancasila, has proven that it can overcome the global challenges successfully,” he said.

He went on to say that amidst the dynamic geopolitical situation, Indonesia is able to flourish under the administration of President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo.
