VOInews, Beijing : Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment (Menko Marves) Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan, officially received the title of Honorary Professor from Tsinghua University in a ceremony held today in Beijing, China (12-6-2024).

In his speech, Coordinating Minister Luhut recalled his life journey and the values ​​of hard work inherited from his father, a former AKAP bus driver in Sibualbuali.

"It was his hard work and never give up attitude that changed the course of his life, making him the first person in Indonesia to study at Cornell University. This attitude is also what I emulate to become a professional, wherever I work," said Coordinating Minister Luhut.

According to a release received by Voice of Indonesia on Thursday (13/06/24), Tsinghua University mandated this title to Coordinating Minister Luhut because of his significant contribution in strengthening friendly relations between Indonesia and China, which is considered to have brought benefits to both countries and the region.

Coordinating Minister Luhut said that he immediately reported the news regarding the awarding of this title to President Joko Widodo.

"The President wants me to receive it. I also asked Tsinghua why they mandated this title. They said that I contributed to the establishment of very close friendly relations between Indonesia and China," explained Coordinating Minister Luhut.

Coordinating Minister Luhut added that so far he had received several offers of similar awards from other universities, but had always refused.

"How is that possible? Graduates of the Military Academy who only understand the words ready and carry out, never liked studying algebra and mathematics, received an honorable degree from a branch of science. Moreover, this degree came from the number 1 campus in Asia and the 12th best in the world," he added. .

Coordinating Minister Luhut expressed his gratitude to the Chinese Government for the strong sense of friendship and mutual trust that has existed over the years. He hopes that the friendship between the two countries will continue to exist and become stronger.

"I will dedicate this mandate as a commitment to continue serving the nation and state, in improving the quality of Indonesian education which is superior and competitive in order to prepare for the Golden Indonesia era 2045," concluded Coordinating Minister Luhut//VOI
