The DKI Jakarta Provincial Government plans to deploy school children to enliven the event and welcome the arrival of delegates in Jakarta.
The excitement will also be presented through outdoor media, so that people are also well socialized.
In addition, the DKI Provincial Government has also carried out various preparations for organizing a series of ASEAN Summits in Jakarta such as mutual cooperation, cross-sectoral cooperation including road repairs, street lighting carried out by the Bina Marga Office and traffic management carried out by the Transportation Service.
The Health Office has prepared the necessary doctors at the lodging location and the Education Office to prepare school children to welcome the delegation groups from various countries.
“Every office building in Jakarta can also enliven it by installing a banner or banner, so that we present the excitement together,” said Heru.
The DKI Jakarta Provincial Government (Pemprov) also plans to implement a work from home (WFH) policy to make the implementation of the ASEAN Foreign Ministers’ Meeting (AMM)/Post Ministerial Meetings (PMC) and the 2023 ASEAN Summit successful in Jakarta.
The WFH discourse at the time of the ASEAN Summit will be discussed further with the Metro Jaya Police Chief Inspector General Karyoto and the Jaya/Jayakarta Kodam Commander Maj. Gen. Mohamad Hasan.
Secretary General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Cecep Herawan explained, as many as 36 countries and various international organizations will attend AMM/PMC.
Meanwhile, the ASEAN Plus Summit will be attended by 26 countries and international organizations.
Therefore, said Cecep, coordination with various parties is needed to make the international event a success.
“This is a big event because the main partner countries will also be present. So, it takes a close synergy with the DKI Provincial Government, how can we work together to make this series of events a success,” said Cecep.
Cecep hopes that the community can be well socialized and support the series of ASEAN Summit events.
“We agreed, God willing, from July, thanks to June, socialization activities can be massive in the midst of the community that we will do together and simultaneously. Thus, there is a complete sense of ownership from the community towards ASEAN activities or a series of meetings in DKI Jakarta,” said Cecep.
The ASEAN Foreign Ministers’ Meeting (AMM)/Post Ministerial Meetings (PMC) agenda will take place on July 13 and 14, while the ASEAN Summit will take place on September 5-7, 2023.
