JAKARTADAILY.ID – President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) underscored the importance of Indonesia's current development being continued by the next Indonesian leader in order to realize the Vision of Indonesia 2045, which is the goal for the country to be a sovereign, advanced, fair and prosperous nation by its centennial in 2045.
"What we have built, we must maintain its continuity, This is what we must protect together, not only for 2024, not only for 2029, but for Golden Indonesia 2045 and beyond," Jokowi stated while addressing thousands of his supporters during the United Nusantara gathering held at the Gelora Bung Karno Main Stadium (GBK) reported by tempo, Sunday, November 27, 2022.
Jokowi said the current development was already on the right track, so it must not be forgotten due to a momentary political interest during the next leadership period.
"Lest momentary interests, short-term interests, political interests, (make us) forget to maintain the continuity of development that we have started," said Jokowi.
The president said that infrastructure development during his leadership period was an important foundation for developing Indonesia to become a developed nation.
"We are starting to feel the results of massive infrastructure development over the past eight years. However, we will feel more in the next five to 10 years.
Our children and grandchildren will feel this. This is what we are preparing from now on," said Jokowi.
The president also expressed optimism that through the hard work of all elements of the Indonesian nation in achieving a golden age in 2045, it would be able to become a developed country that holds the top five strongest economies in the world.
"We want our economy's GDP (Gross Domestic Product) to reach $7 trillion in 2045, meaning that we are a developed country by that time. However, this is not easy. It requires hard work," Jokowi stated.
