Remarks of President of the Republic of Indonesia at the Opening of the 32nd National Congress and the 31st Consultative Assembly of Members of the Catholic Student Association of the Republic of Indonesia (PMKRI), at Samarinda Convention Hall, Samarinda City, East Kalimantan Province, June 22, 2022
I just visited the New Capital of Nusantara (IKN). This is an old dream. An old idea that has not been executed. Now, we have executed the plan under the new state capital law. We want the relocation to demonstrate the idea of Indonesia-centric instead of Java-centric.
This is the place where we will start the future economy, green economy, future technology, and future knowledge. Hospitals will apply international standards for services, universities will be world-class universities. That way, we hope this can also open up more future jobs and skills.
That concludes my remarks on this auspicious occasion.
Good luck on the congress.
And hereby I declare the 32nd National Congress and the 31st Consultative Assembly of Members of the Catholic Student Association of the Republic of Indonesia officially open.
I thank you.
May God bless us all.
Wassalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
