On that occasion, the President expressed appreciation to anyone who have contributed to the success of the tree-planting initiative.

“A heartfelt thank you to local communities, especially to the Jakarta Capital Region Authority along with all regional governments in Greater Jakarta, and all participating companies,” he said.
