Remarks of President of the Republic of Indonesia at the Kickoff Ceremony of Indonesia 2023 ASEAN Chairmanship, Jakarta, January 29, 2023
Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh,
May peace and prosperity be upon us all,
We have carried out the G20 Presidency very well. This year Indonesia assumes ASEAN chairmanship in the midst of a tough global situation with multiple crises, including economic crisis, energy crisis, food crisis, and the ongoing war.
I believe ASEAN remains important and relevant for the people, the region, and the world.
ASEAN will continue contributing to peace and stability in the Indo-Pacific region and maintaining economic growth. ASEAN matters and it is the epicentrum of growth.
That concludes my remarks on this auspicious occasion.
I thank you.
Wassalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
By saying bismillahirrahmanirrahim, this morning I officialy declare the Indonesia’s 2023 ASEAN Chairmanship begin.
Wassalamua’laikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
