President Joko Widodo asked related stakeholders to carefully prepare for implementing the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction (GPDRR) 2022 in Bali, which will be attended by 5,000 to 7,000 delegates from 193 countries.

 

"I think we as hosts have a lot of experience to host various international conferences," said the President at the Presidential Palace, Bogor, Thursday, in a virtual limited meeting regarding the implementation of the 2022 GPDRR.

 

The President also stated that the GPDRR event held by the United Nations Agency for Disaster Risk Reduction (UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction / UNISDR) should be used to promote Indonesia's national interests.

 

"The presence of (representatives from) 193 countries can be used as a momentum to promote Indonesian tourism," he added.

 

GPDRR is a global event that is held every two years to review the latest developments and trends in disaster management. The last event was held in Geneva, Switzerland. (Antaranews)
