Badung – The G20 Presidency summit series of events continued with a gala dinner, attended by Heads of State members of the G20 Summit and high-ranking international institutions, which was held at Lotus Pond, Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park (GWK), Uluwatu Highway, Unggasan District, South Kuta, Badung Regency, Bali Province, on Tuesday (15/11/2022) evening.
On that occasion, the invited guests of the G20 Summit who arrived at the location were immediately greeted by President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) and Mrs. Iriana who were compactly dressed in traditional Balinese clothes, Payas Agung. President Jokowi introduced one of the most iconic places on the island of Bali, namely GWK to the delegations of G20 country leaders.
In his remarks, President Joko Widodo conveyed that Garuda Wisnu Kencana, which was used as the location for the dinner, had the meaning of love, responsibility, courage and loyalty. And that is what the leaders in the world have to do, namely to spread love, be responsible, have courage, and be loyal.
“Hopefully the delegates can enjoy dinner that has been prepared and according to their tastes, enjoy the meal and hopefully it won’t be too spicy with Indonesian dishes,” said President Joko Widodo.
Meanwhile, Pangdam IX/Udayana General Major TNI Sonny Aprianto, S.E., M.M., as the Regional Security Task Force Commander for the G20 Summit activity area, has deployed a Security Task Force at the GWK location long before the G20 Summit Presidency took place, including alerting the Evacuation Task Force.
Security has been tightened since a few days ago starting from ring 1, ring 2 and ring 3 which have been fully accounted for by Danplek, especially in the GWK area, so that the holding of a gala dinner or dinner for delegates/ participants of the G20 Summit Presidency can run safely, in an orderly manner and smoothly.
