Menkeu Sri Mulyani (Foto Setkab) - Nusa Dua - Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati said Indonesia would propose coral reef insurance at the annual meeting of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank in Nusa Dua, Bali, 8-14 October 2018

"Maybe later in the meeting I will try to discuss the form of insurance against the world's wealth. This is not only Indonesia's wealth but the world," she said after planting coral reefs on Nusa Dua Beach, Badung Regency, Bali, on Sunday. (7/10/2018)

According to her, the existence of coral reefs can be disrupted due to human activities and lifestyles so that the forum is expected to be a forum to share experiences in the context of climate change.

Indonesia, she said, made it an important issue considering nearly 60 percent of the world’s coral reefs is in the waters of the country. "This creates value for the world, meaning that if something happens with coral in Indonesia, the world will suffer because of that," said the former one of the World Bank's Managing Director.

The planting of coral reefs in Nusa Dua was the beginning of the annual meeting of the IMF and World Bank in Bali which was also carried out by the Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs Luhut Binsar Panjaitan, IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde, and BI Governor Perry Warjiyo.

The presence of Christine Lagarde who participated in planting coral reefs, continued Sri Mulyani, is expected to be a "spokesperson" for the world that Indonesia has the world's largest coral reef.

"We can contribute to protection like this coral reef which we hope will continue to grow," said Christine Lagarde. The annual meeting of the IMF and World Bank will be attended by around 34 thousand people from 189 countries ranging from finance ministers, central bank governors, investors, and 23 heads of state.
