INDUSTRY.co.id - Bandung - IMF Managing Director, Christine Lagarde together with Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs Luhut Panjaitan, Bank Indonesia Governor Perry Warjiyo, and Finance Minister Sri Mulyani, Sunday (7/10/218) planting coral reefs on the coast of Nusa Dua, Bali, an area that will become the center meeting of 32 thousand economic delegates who will attend the 2018 IMF-World Bank Annual Meeting on 8-14 October 2018.

Christine Lagarde after coral reef planting behind the Sofitel Hotel, Nusa Dua, Bali, said that this activity was to provide marine biota that would improve the quality of life of the underwater flora and fauna.

"The maritime uniqueness must be maintained, as the wealth of this country," Lagarde said.

Indonesia has 60 percent of the world's coral reefs. Unfortunately, coral reefs are very easily damaged by various reasons, including climate change and destructive activities in tourist attractions.

"Coral reef planting is expected to produce a unique and beautiful underwater aquarium," Lagarde added.

Lagarde along with Luhut, Perry and Sri Mulyani helped install the coral directly on the support structure which would then be placed on the seabed by volunteers.

Perry Warjiyo said in the middle of the annual IMF-World Bank 2018 meeting, there needed to be activities to preserve the environmental ecosystem.

"We must protect the environment and love life," Perry said.

The IMF-World Bank Annual Meeting will be held on 8-14 October 2018.

It is estimated that around 32 thousand delegates including the Minister of Finance and the Governor of the Central Bank from 189 countries will be present at the meeting held in Nusa Dua, Bali.
