Nusa Dua-Bali, – As the president of G20, Indonesia will host the G20 Summit on 15-16 November 2022 in Bali.

While inspecting the readiness of one of the G20 Summit venues at the Apurva Kempinski Hotel, Nusa Dua, Bali on Tuesday (30/08/2022), Vice President Ma’ruf Amin stated that Indonesia had to become a good host, by providing excellent service to all delegates.

“I was given various information about the preparations for the G20 Summit and I hope that we really have to be a good host. A host who can provide perfect service,” said the Vice President when giving a brief direction to the participants of the Coordination Meeting on Preparation of the G20 Indonesia Summit taking place at The Apurva Kempinski Ballroom.

Furthermore, the Vice President also requested that the national committee of the G20 Indonesia Summit had to learn from the previous G20 Summits to circumvent the shortcomings and avoid the the repeated mistakes.

“Do not let a bad impression take place. Basically, there are two things that are certainly on the agenda, namely the agenda itself that we prepare and also the services we provide. Both must be perfect and create the best impression,” said the Vice President.

“Our main agenda in the summit is to bring the common good, to rise together, to be strong together, in facing various challenges and recovery. But as the host, our service in various aspects, from security to accommodation, is also essential,” he added.

Because, said the Vice President, the delegates who would attend the G20 Summit were Heads of State and International Institutions. Therefore, he hoped that when they returned home, they would be having a good impression of Indonesia.

“Not only the perfect venue but also the perfect service. I hope the success of the G20 Indonesia Summit will lift up the position of Indonesia on the global scene,” he concluded.

Not only reviewing the summit venues, the Vice President also checked some electric cars for heads of state and delegations. In addition, the Vice President also reviewed the readiness of the Public Electric Vehicle Charging Station (SPKLU), which was also available in the area of the Apurva Kempinski Hotel.
