President Jokowi: More Promoting Asian Games 2018... Please!

PRESIDENT Joko Widodo (Jokowi) has called to promote the Asian Games 2018 to be held on Aug 18 in the cities of Jakarta and Palembang.

“During the meeting, related ministers reported the updated condition of venues and all facilities as well as the athletes’ training. I want to hear about preparations for the opening ceremony, competition event, and closing ceremony," the president noted.

Coordinating Minister of Human and Cultural Development Puan Maharani, Coordinating Minister for Economy Darmin Nasution, Coordinating Minister of Politics, Law, and Security Wiranto, State Secretary Minister Pratikno, Minister of State Enterprises Rini Sumarno, Minister of Youth and Sports Imam Nahrawi, and Cabinet Secretary Pramono Anung among others attended the meeting. [antaranews/photo special]
