"There are more than 12.8 million Pre-Employment Card recipients who have been served for 26 months of program implementation and are still continuing today. Where everything can be solved via a smartphone," said Airlangga in his presentation.

Responding to the explanation given by the Coordinating Minister for Airlangga, Solomon Islands Minister of Education, Lanelle Olandrea Tanangada, said that this program is very interesting to be implemented in the Solomon Islands.
