I observed, inspected Rumpin Nursery in Bogor Regency, West Java Province in order to ensure that we can begin reforestation programs, rehabilitation of critical lands, rehabilitation of lands prone to landslides, rehabilitation of lands in areas that are often hit by floods by developing nurseries.

And we will build this in 2022. Approximately 30 nurseries like Rumpin Nursery will be able to produce approximately 12 million plant or tree seeds, including albizzia, sengon, eucalyptus, manglid, teak, mahogany, and everything.

And we hope—this is the beginning of a process that we hope will strengthen research, strengthen our research on germplasms in the country. And we hope that we will have nurseries for mangroves, nurseries for native plants in regions that will strengthen our richness in germplasms even more.

Then in the economic aspect, we also want that productions in nurseries have economic calculations. Therefore, what we produce can truly bring economic advantages, both to the country and to the people. So, it benefits the environment and the economy.

That concludes my statement on this auspicious occasion.

Let me express my sincerest appreciation to Ibu Megawati who has given a lot of advice related to nurseries, reforestation, and land rehabilitation in all regions in Indonesia.

That concludes my statement.

I thank you.

Wassalaamu’alaikum warahmatullaahi wabarakaatuh.
