President Jokowi Hopes HIPMI Entrepreneurs Can Join Hands to Build Indonesia
President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo Friday (10/06) expressed hope that the Indonesian Young Entrepreneurs Association (HIPMI) members can work hard to face the challenges to build Indonesia.
“HIPMI members are all young entrepreneurs with strong entrepreneurial power and we hope they will work hard in the future since they are the ones who will build the country,” President Jokowi said in his remarks at the 50th Anniversary of HIPMI in Jakarta.
The Head of State also encouraged young entrepreneurs to adapt in the midst of difficult economic situation at home and abroad.
“So they can face it just fine even though the current situation is not favorable,” he added.
Previously, President Jokowi congratulated HIPMI on its golden anniversary and expressed belief that at the moment of “Indonesia Emas 2045” (Golden Indonesia), HIMPI members would become major entrepreneurs in the country.
“I believe that the conglomerates in the year of Indonesia Emas 2045 are all members of HIPMI. If you are now in your 20s, 30s, or 40, by adding 25 years means that you are in your 50s, 60s, or 65s and you all will become conglomerates,” the President remarked.
For the record, the 50th Anniversary of HIPMI—which adopted the theme of “Create a Golden Indonesia 2045 Together”—will be held on 10-12 June 2022.
HIPMI also held several events. including the Regency Administrations Association (Apkasi) Expo, HIPMI Museum, Business Matching, and the Indonesia Young Leader Forum.
During the event, President Jokowi also symbolically received a book entitled 50 years of HIPMI towards 1 Century from the first HIPMI Chairperson Abdul Latief. (TGH/UN) (GWH/EP)
