Date 24 Mei 2018
President Joko Jokowi Widodo on Thursday (24/5) at Dirgantara Park, Majalengka, West Java received representatives of Senior High School/Vocational High School Student Organization (OSIS) and top-performing Senior High School students across Majalengka, after the maiden flight at West Java International Airport (BIJB) Kertajati.
On that occasion, the President encouraged the students to carry out their main task to study. All of them, the President asserted, are leaders in their respective schools.
Head of Student Organization (OSIS), Head of Indonesian Scout Movement (Pramuka) and Head of Muslim Student Organization (Rohis) are leaders in their respective schools, Jokowi said.
Furthermore, the President asked the students who attended the event to remind their friends about the right use of social media.
Social media must be used for positive things. Do not condemn, blaspheme, dishonor, and slander others, the President said while adding that to learn something new in social media is very easy.
President Jokowi added that to achieve goals, a person must work hard, must be discipline and do productive things.
The opportunity is great but challenges and obstacles are also great. But with bright faces like this, I believe, Inshallah (God willing) this country will be a better country than today, Jokowi said.
Citing the calculations of Mckinsey Global Institute, the World Bank, and National Development Agency (Bappenas), President Jokowi explained that Indonesia predicted to be ‘Indonesia Gold’ by 2045 which means the countrys income per capita is expected to reach 8 times higher than the current figure, US$ 29,000. If it happens, Indonesia will be amongst top 5 countries with strong economy. It can only be achieved if all of us work hard, united and maintain our brotherhood.
President Jokowi asked the students as well to be optimistic about Indonesias future. This country will have a better future.
Also accompanying the President on the occasion were Presidential Chief of Staff Moeldoko, Minister of Education and Culture Muhadjir Effendy, Presidential Special Staff Abdul Ghofarrozin, and Governor of West Java Ahmad Heryawan. (FID/ES) (GWH/MMB/Naster)
