The 144th IPU Increases Indonesia’s Existence in the Eyes of the World


Nusa Dua – Chairperson of the Indonesian House of Representatives, Puan Maharani, said that the 144th IPU will be an event that can increase Indonesia’s existence in the eyes of the world. If the IPU event in Nusa Dua goes well, it will bring the names of Indonesia and Bali to be positive in the international world.

The 144th IPU will prove that Indonesia can become one of the countries to be reckoned with by the international world because Indonesia has extraordinary resources, both natural and human resources and is able to use existing resources for the progress of Indonesia.

The 144th IPU took the theme “Getting to Zero: Mobilizing Parliament to Act on Climate Change”. The issue of climate change is taken as a big theme to be discussed because it concerns the survival and safety of the world. “Climate change and the Covid-19 pandemic, those are the main issues of course the derivative agenda and I also open a discussion room following the dynamics that will be discussed in accordance with the trial rules,” said Puan while in Nusa Dua Bali (15/3/2022).

Because of that, Puan reminded that no other issues should be brought up that would appear to have no respect for fellow IPU members.

He ensured that as many as 115 countries would attend the 144th IPU. Meanwhile, the total number of participants who will participate in the world parliamentary forum is estimated to reach a total of 1,000 participants.

“So far, 115 countries have declared a physical presence. So no haybrid, no zoom. All those present are IPU participants,” said Puan.

The IPU is scheduled to be opened by President Joko Widodo. It is also believed that it will raise the image of the island of Bali as well as help restore the tourism economy on the Island of the Gods after being affected by the Covid-19 pandemic for a long time. The world parliamentary forum is also considered to make a good contribution to Indonesia as the presidency of the G20 Summit.

Meanwhile, the Governor of Bali, Wayan Koster, who was present at the coordination meeting with Puan, stated that the Covid-19 pandemic in his area had been managed well. The vaccination rate in Bali is also high enough so that the implementation of the 144th IPU will be more secure.

“This meeting is the first momentum of an international meeting held in Bali Province as the beginning of the recovery of Bali’s tourism and economy, which already requires the right momentum at this time. Because the pandemic is under control and very conducive,” said Koster.

The big event of this world parliamentary forum will be attended by a delegation consisting of the Speakers of Parliament, members of Parliament and officials of the Parliamentary Secretariat of IPU member countries. In addition, there will also be leaders of International Organizations, experts/experts and practitioners as resource persons for the session, as well as the media and other stakeholders. The DPR RI has prepared a strict health protocol in the implementation of the 144th IPU.
