President of Asian Olympic Council, Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah stated that Jakarta has the ability to be host of major international activities. This was expressed when delivering a speech at the closing of the 18th Asian Games on Sunday (2/9). Specifically, the recommendation was presented to the President of the International Olympic Committee, Thomas Bach who was also present at the closing ceremony of the 2018 Asian Games. That statement certainly makes Indonesia even more proud after successfully hosting the second Asian Games. For more than two weeks, Indonesia has proven successful in 3 aspects at the 2018 Asian Games. The aspects are in terms of facility and infrastructure, achievements and hosting. The success of organizing the 2018 Asian Games becomes  capital for Indonesia to nominate itself as host of 2032 Olympics. The wish to be host has been stated by President Joko Widodo to the International Olympic Committee, Thomas Bach at Bogor Palace last Saturday. The 2018 Asian Games have left a lot of valuable things. 94 arenas of competition and training have been built and renovated to meet international standards. Jakarta International Veledrome, for example, is considered to be one of the best in the world. Another valuable relic is the positive behavior of Indonesian people. The enthusiasm of the Indonesian people to witness 465 match numbers has encouraged more than 11,000 athletes from 45 countries to compete and achieve the best. The enthusiasm and dedication were also shown by volunteers who have worked sincerely and wholeheartedly. Vice President Jusuf Kalla, in his remarks at the closing of the Asian Games, thanked for the volunteers with their hospitality made the athletes feel at home. The success of organizing the 2018 Asian Games can be a special note for Indonesia to host the 2032 Olympics. At least, that was revealed by the President of the International Olympiad Committee, Thomas Bach. He revealed the success of the 2018 Asian Games is a strong foundation. The thing that impressed him was the people of Indonesia. According to him, Indonesia has shown a great combination of friendliness and efficiency at the same time. He added that it was the Olympics. The Olympics is about humans, perfection and friendship. Another note that can become Indonesia's capital as the host of the 2032 Olympics is the ability to present spectacular opening and closing events. At the opening, Indonesia showed the richness and diversity of Indonesian culture, and at the closing ceremony, the nuances of Asian diversity were gracefully exhibited. The capital owned by Indonesia can be a special record for the Committee of International Olympic. Because Indonesia has succeeded in making Asian energy and enthusiasm inexhaustible. Indonesia has grown the real energy of Asia, and united to bring goodness to the world. Hopefully, Indonesia's wish to host the 2032 Olympics can be realized. So,  the world community feels Indonesia's beauty. As said by Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah, Indonesia, You're Great!
