October 4, 2022, 06.23 PM

JAKARTA, - The Indonesian government has continued to finalize preparations for the G20 Summit, which is scheduled to take place in the island resort of Bali on Nov. 15-16.

On Monday, Oct. 3, President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo chaired an internal meeting at the Presidential Palace in Jakarta to discuss preparations, including the physical readiness and the details of the G20 Summit.

"Almost all of the working groups and engagement groups have been completed," Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs Airlangga Hartarto told the media after the meeting.

The results of the G20 Sherpa meeting on economy, health, and finance were also presented to the President, he said.

According to Airlangga, the form and format of the final report will be discussed and agreed on in four rounds of Sherpa meetings.

"Indonesia hopes that the overall results of the discussion can be simple and summarized in 34 paragraphs, and this has already begun to be prepared," he said.

Several G20 countries are pushing for the inclusion of issues related to Russia's military invasion of Ukraine in the joint agreement that will be released at the G20 Summit, the senior minister added.

"We want it to be included in the leaders’ declaration. So, from a technical and format point of view, there are still discussions that must be explored again," Airlangga said.

Indonesia will continue to monitor changing global developments and remain vigilant against problems that can be mitigated through the G20 Summit, he added.

Meanwhile, President Widodo is planning to visit Bali to directly review arrangements for the summit.

Indonesia has pushed three priority issues during its G20 Presidency: global health architecture, digital transformation, and sustainable energy transition, with the main theme of "Recover Together, Recover Stronger.”

The National Police will prioritize its security for the G20 Summit in five areas: Seminyak, Jimbaran, North Nusa Dua, South Nusa Dua, and Sanur.

"The five areas are prioritized because all delegates, including presidential activities, will be held there," The National Police’s assistant operations chief Inspector General Agung Setya Imam Effendi said.

Security operations during the G20 Summit will be conducted centrally, he added.

"This means that police operations will be conducted starting from the National Police Headquarters to the regional level in Bali and West Nusa Tenggara (NTB)," he said.

Police officers deployed to the G20 Summit will serve for 10 days from Nov. 7–17, 2022.
So far, the National Police has deployed over 5,000 personnel for security operations at the G20 Summit, while 1,600 members of the police have been prepared as reserve forces, he added.

The number of troops deployed could increase based on the conditions on the ground and developments, he said.

"The police are also preparing special vehicles such as ships, helicopters, and escort cars to secure the areas," Effendi said.

All motorized vehicles used by the police during the G20 Summit security operations will run on electrical energy.

"Following the directive of the G20 Summit under the Indonesian Presidency, we are encouraged to become environmentally friendly in our implementation. Hence, we will use electric vehicles," Effendi said.
