South Kalimantan hosted the peak of the 26th National Family Day 2019. The 2019 National Family Day which was held in the South Kalimantan Provincial Office complex, Banjarbaru, Saturday (06/07) was attended by Indonesian Coordinating Minister for Human Development and Culture, Puan Maharani and Indonesian Health Minister Nila Moeloek. Puan Maharani who represented President Joko Widodo opened the annual event. In her remarks, Puan Maharani said that National Family Day was an annual commemoration that could strengthen the relationship between family and mutual cooperation for Indonesian families.
“Families play an important role in building character, ethics, and norms in socialization, and in strengthening Pancasila in the life of nation and state. Every Indonesian family must also understand that Indonesia is a large and diverse nation. There are 714 ethnic groups, 1100 regional languages, 17 thousand islands. Therefore, the family must be a place to build attitudes in respecting differences and of course prioritizing a sense of unity as a big family, Indonesia,” said Puan Maharani.
The peak of the 26th National Family Day Commemoration in 2019 was enlivened by the awarding of the Satya Lencana Pembangunan and Satya Lancana Wira Karya awards from President Joko Widodo to governors, regents and mayors throughout Indonesia who succeeded in the fields of population, family planning and family development.
Meanwhile, the Head of the Indonesian National Population and Family Planning Agency (BKKBN) Hasto Wardoyo as Chair of the organizing committee said that he would further develop the Family Planning Village in each region in Indonesia through community empowerment to create a prosperous and quality family.
