INDUSTRY.co.id - Indonesian President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) emphasized that ASEAN must be ready to face the increasingly complex challenges ahead.
This was conveyed by the President when opening the ASEAN Leaders Meeting with the High-Level Task Force on the ASEAN Community's Post-2025 Vision, at the Meruorah Komodo Hotel, Labuan Bajo, West Manggarai, East Nusa Tenggara, Wednesday (10/05/2023) afternoon.
"I appreciate the hard work of members of the High-Level Task Force in the past year, and ASEAN must really be ready to face increasingly complex challenges," he said.
The President also stressed the important role of the High-Level Task Force in identifying challenges and opportunities for ASEAN far into the future and ensuring ASEAN's contribution to the progress of the region and the world.
"We must prepare for the worst, but still hope for the best," he added.
Furthermore, the President stated that the ASEAN Vision 2045 must be more adaptive, future-oriented, and not routine or business as usual. Therefore, the President hopes that the High-Level Task Force can produce transformative and out of the box thoughts.
"In our discussion today we will elaborate thoughts that are out of the box and transformative. Therefore, ASEAN leaders will directly hear the report of the High-Level Task Force and plans for the future," he concluded. (TGH/UN)
