As for medium and long-term solutions, Jokowi called on countries around the world to “increase the production of vaccines to meet global demand and build-up health security. Technology and investment to increase production capacity [for the Covid-19 vaccine] should also be used.”

Jokowi warned of serious consequences if this was not carried out. “If these production and distribution issues are not addressed, I am concerned that this will prolong our struggle with the Covid-19 pandemic.”

He pointed out that positive global economic growth will depend on how countries around the world will deal with the Covid-19 pandemic.

“G20 countries must get behind efforts to increase production of the Covid-19 vaccine and equal access to them for all countries. Indonesia supports the TRIPS [Trade Related Intellectual Property Rights] Waiver to prevent and treat COVID-19,” Jokowi declared.

He added that Indonesia, as a G20 country, has decided to support post-sponsor proposal for the TRIPS Waiver, which would suspend intellectual property rights on vaccines in the WTO. Jokowi also hoped that other G20 countries will follow suit.
