Indonesian President Joko Widodo has asked his staff to further intensify the promotion of Asian Games to be held in Jakarta and Palembang, South Sumatra. In his directive at the Cabinet Limited Meeting held on Friday, May 4, at the Presidential Office, Jakarta, the President reminded the upcoming Asian Games. According to various steps related to promotion, publication and marketing of the 18th Asian Games should also be improved.
“Related to the preparation of the Asian Games, in a meeting in Bogor I have emphasized the importance of promotion, the importance of publication, the importance of marketing from this 18th Asian Games. It must continuously be done from time to time, both targeting the public in the country and of course the promotional targets in Asian countries that are participants of the Asian Games,” the President said.
Related to that, Head of Creative Economy Agency (Bekraf) Triawan Munaf explained, ahead of the implementation of the Asian Games next August, the government will intensify the promotion of the Asian Games into a national scale. Therefore, he said, all ministries of the institution will participate in encouraging promotional activities in every agency throughout Indonesia.
“The point is, in a very short time, this promotion of the Asian Games will be more intensified not only from the Inasgoc but also from the ministry or institutions. We must continuously promote the Asian Games until August 18 and raise the Asian Games euphoria, so that the knowledge and awareness of the community are increasing,” Triawan Munaf said.
In addition to promoting the promotion of the Asian Games nationally, the Indonesian government will also step up coordination among ministries and agencies. This is done to ensure the success of the Asian Games. (VOI/Ndy/trans by Rezha/AHM)
