Remarks of President of the Republic of Indonesia at the Opening Ceremony of G20 Indonesia Presidency 2022, 1 December 2021
Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh,
May prosperity be upon us all,
Greetings of virtue.
It is such a privilege and an honor for Indonesia to hold the G20 Presidency. The privilege provides a greater opportunity for Indonesia to contribute more to the global economic recovery and develop a more prudent, more just and sustainable world order based on freedom, lasting peace and social justice.
To that end, the G20 Indonesia Presidency carries the theme “Recover Together, Recover Stronger”. During the G20 Presidency, Indonesia will focus on three sectors. First, inclusive health care. Second, digital-based transformation. Third, transition to sustainable energy.
I fervently hope that the G20 Indonesia Presidency will not be merely ceremonial. Indonesia encourages G20 countries to take concrete actions. Indonesia will continue to encourage G20 countries to produce major breakthroughs. Indonesia will continue to encourage G20 countries to foster collaboration and strength to ensure that the global community can benefit from this collaboration.
The Indonesian Presidency will also be utilized to fight for the aspirations and interests of developing countries. Indonesia is working to build a more just world order. Indonesia seeks to strengthen global solidarity in tackling climate change and sustainable development issues, garner the commitment of developed countries to assist developing countries, and invite rich countries to assist poor countries. Togetherness with spirit of solidarity is the answer to the future. Indonesia strives to produce concrete initiatives to encourage the recovery of the global situation so that it can recover quickly and become stronger.
Recover Together, Recover Stronger.
I invite the delegations to come to Indonesia, to see the natural beauty of Indonesia, to witness the unique diversity of Indonesian culture, and to feel the hospitality of the Indonesian people.
We will welcome you all with great joy and open arms.
Welcome to Indonesia.
I thank you.
Wassalamu’alaikum warahmatullah wabarakatuh,
Om santi santi santi om. (RI/MUR)
