Making Game of Thrones Analogy, President Jokowi Invites the World to Get United Achieving Inclusive Economy Growth

Nusa Dua, Bali, 12/10/18, Finance Ministry-- President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) has invited the world to get united for achieving inclusive economic growth for all, not to compete and bring each other down.

“Enjoying the final season of Game of Thrones, I believe the ending will convey moral message that winning or losing will both bring sufferings for those who win or lose. Winning at war will result in annihilated world,” the President said at the Nusa Dua Hall, BNDCC, Friday (12/10).

Furthermore, President Jokowi said that the world was facing rising global threats. In addition to trade war and economic instability, the world is experiencing problems on climate change and other environment aspects requiring joint solutions.

In closing his welcome speech, the President said he was expecting all policy makers attending the Annual Meetings 2018 from around the world to be able to produce joint policy and commitment to overcome problems possibly hampering economic growth. As what was done 10 years ago, President Jokowi hoped the problems would be well-managed.
“I hope the ladies and gentlemen here will infiltrate the force and the beautiful aspiration of Bali to later have pure heart and mind in fixing global economic condition together,” said the President that was met with standing applause from all of the attendees. (kli)
