INDUSTRY.co.id - Bogor- Changes in technology and global conditions that are so fast must be addressed carefully. To the GMKI congress participants who were so enthusiastic in listening to the speech, President Joko Widodo also reminded him of this.

The Head of State conveyed this when giving a speech at the inauguration ceremony of the opening of the 36th Congress of the Indonesian Christian Student Movement (GMKI) at the auditorium of The Forest Resort, Bogor, on Friday, September 14, 2018.

According to him, young people are the spearhead of the nation that is most able to follow and anticipate the changes in the world.

"We must realize that there are changes in the global world now. These changes are so fast. We must know and follow all, especially young people," said the President.

Especially with the fourth industrial revolution whose changes are said to be three thousand times faster than the first industrial revolution requires the Indonesian people to really prepare themselves to be able to compete.

"There is something we have to prepare, which we have to anticipate, that is our big work. We can make a leap if we can plan and anticipate the changes. If we don't really leave," he said.

The President said that the leap in progress and adaptation to global change can only be realized if all elements of the nation unite and work together for the great interests of the Indonesian people. So, at the end of his speech, the Head of State invited all parties to maintain harmony and unity while preparing for the challenges of the times.

"I invite us to prepare ourselves to deal with these changes. Once again, our unity and harmony must be maintained so that they become one," said the President.

Also present accompanied the President, including Minister of Research, Technology and Higher Education M Nasir, Minister of Law and Human Rights Yasonna Laoly, and General Chairperson of GMKI Sahat PP Martin Philip Sinurat.
