Bismillahirrahmanirrahim.

Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh,
Good morning,
May peace be upon us all,
Om Swastiastu,
Namo Buddhaya,
Greetings of virtue.

Today, on Monday, March 14, 2022, we are all here for our great purpose to commence the development of the New Capital of Nusantara (IKN).

I am here with 34 governors from 34 provinces in Indonesia and 15 prominent figures of East Kalimantan province. We have just combined water and soil that were brought by 34 governors to the location of the future capital of Nusantara.

I also would like to express my highest appreciation to the governors. This ritual is a symbol of diversity and unity among us in the development of IKN. The collaborative works between the Central Government, regional governments, the Indonesian National Defense Forces (TNI), the Indonesian National Police (Polri), private sector, and the people in supporting the development of IKN will be a great help to materialize our goals as soon as possible.

I also want to thank state institutions: the People’s Consultative Assembly (MPR), the House of Representatives (DPR), the Regional Representatives Council (DPD), the Supreme Court, the Constitutional Court, the Supreme Audit Agency (BPK), the Judicial Commission, and all layers of society for your support for the development of IKN.

Let us pray. May God the Almighty bless us and ease any hardship in the development of IKN.

I thank you. That concludes my statement.

Wassalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
