President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

Yes. I believe this is a good thing since it emphasizes that faith can be realized to protect and respect mother nature, countries, and humanity. I think this is excellent. The conference also discussed contemporary issues such as a sustainable economy, media industry, and energy. I am sure useful things like that are needed to be discussed at the conference.


Your hopes for such conference for the country, Sir?


President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

I previously said that I hope it can make Islam in Indonesia a moderate Islam, wasathiyah Islam. That’s from me.
