According to the President, B.J. Habibie experienced fatigue due to the tight events that were attended in various regions, but now he is gradually recovered. President Jokowi hopes that the ‘Father of Indonesian Technology’ can return to his usual activities.

“Prof. Habibie is now in a very healthy condition. He told me a lot; he was too tired because of having intense activities. But Alhamdulillah (praise be to Allah), now it’s all good,” the President said.

On that occasion, President Jokowi and B.J. Habibie also had the opportunity to exchange ideas about human resources development, which will be the focus of the Government in the future.
