INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) said, the celebration of 73rd Independence Day on Friday (08/17/2018) tomorrow is a momentum to recall the spirit of Indonesian unity which has been proven by the nation's founders, pioneers, and fighters, in seizing and maintaining independence.

"At that time, all the nation's children got rid of differences in politics, ethnicity, religion or class, only to realize an independent Indonesia," said President Jokowi in his address to the 2018 MPR Annual Session at the MPR / DPR / DPD Nusantara Building RI, Jakarta, Thursday (08/16/2018) morning.
