Remarks of President of the Republic of Indonesia During the Inauguration of the Papua Street Carnival at the Papua Governor’s Office in Papua Province, July 7, 2023
May peace be upon us all,
Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullah wabarakatuh.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
After inaugurating the Papua Youth Creative Hub (PYCH) and noticing its development, I believe that all Papuan youth will make a great leap. If all of you do not believe it, you can check at the exhibition and see that all local Papuan products including coffee, smoked fish, as well as fashion products reflect great leap. They have good-quality packaging, good-quality design.
As Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy said, [Papuan youth] has manufactured smartphones and laptops. They were manufactured in eastern Indonesia, in Papua, not in western Indonesia. Indeed, it is a big leap. We’ll see the development of the creative industry in Papua.
That concludes my speech on this auspicious occasion.
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful, I hereby officially inaugurate the Papua Street Carnival.
I thank you.
Wassalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
