            The DPR RI carries the theme “Stronger Parliament for Sustainable Recovery” in the P20 which is in line with the G20 Presidency’s theme, namely “recover together, recover stronger”. The implementation of the P20 is a form of readiness of the Indonesian parliament (DPR) to be able to synergize or communicate with all parliaments in the world.

            This P20 moment can also be a moment to show the beauty of unity and integrity in the midst of the diversity of the Indonesian nation to the world. It is hoped that the implementation of the P20 and G20 can go well and bring Indonesia’s image to the international community.

            The P20 which was held in Indonesia was an event where the parliament of each member of the G20 was present in Indonesia to discuss international issues such as the use of Green Energy. Of course, this implementation needs to provide support to the participants of the NKRI Summit.

            Indonesia’s leadership in the P20 event, of course, must be realized. This is proof that Indonesia is a country capable of making various international-class events.
