Indonesia successfully held two major events in October 2018. The first one is the Asian Para Games held in Jakarta on 6-13 October 2018. While the second one is the Annual Meeting of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank Group (IMF-WBG) in Nusa Dua, Bali, 8-14 October 2018. At the 2018 Asian Para Games, Indonesia succeeded in becoming a good host for 43 countries participating in the event. This is evidenced by the statement of the President of the Asian Paralympic Committee -APC, Majid Rashed to the media before the closing ceremony. Rashed was very impressed by the organizing of the third Asian disability sports event in Jakarta October 6-13 2018. According to Rashed, the Asian Para Games Organizing Committee (INAPGOC) has worked very well and professionally. He also said that the 2018 Asian Para Games was much bigger in terms of the number of participants, the number of media that covered and the number of spectators who watched, and more lively than the two previous Asian Para Games. The second event was the International Monetary Fund-World Bank Group Annual Meeting –IMF-WBG held in Nusa Dua, Bali, 8-14 October 2018. Managing Director of IMF, Christine Lagarde and President of the World Bank, Jim Yong Kim also expressed their appreciation for Indonesia's success in organizing the international meeting. This appreciation was even followed by the provision of assistance worth US$1 billion dollars for disaster victims in Central Sulawesi and Lombok by the World Bank. The praise and appreciation for the two big events are given because of the hard work and good cooperation among the organizing committee, the government, the security, and the Indonesian people as a whole. At the closing of the Asian Para Games on Saturday, October 13, 2018, Vice President Jusuf Kalla affirmed that the Asian Para Games was more than sports event among Asian countries. He considered that the Asian Para Games 2018 gives a spirit of equality in humanity and is an important momentum or part of the history of Asian nations, especially Indonesia. Hopefully, the 2018 Asian Para Games and the Annual Meeting of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank Group can give a good impression, not only to the guests who come, but also to the country and the people of Indonesia. The success achieved is a proof that Indonesia is a country that deserves to be taken into account and has more value in international world now and in the future.
