"There is no advanced country that has pessimistic people. An advanced country must have optimistic people," Jokowi stated while addressing several thousand supporters congregating at the Gelora Bung Karno Stadium in Jakarta on Saturday for his final campaign rally.
As a G20 member, Indonesia is viewed as an economic power in the world.
Currently clocking a five percent economic growth, Jokowi is upbeat that Indonesia would emerge as the fourth-largest economy by 2045.
In 2017, the Jokowi cabinet's assessments indicated that by 2045, when Indonesia would have celebrated its 100th anniversary of independence, its populace would have reached 309 million; economic growth would have touched six percent; and GDP amounting to US$9.1 trillion.
"Our country is projected to emerge as the fourth-largest nation and economic power in the world by 2045," he affirmed.
"Do not ever sense pessimism or become low, as Indonesia is a vast nation that harbors high hopes," Jokowi emphasized.
