The minister highlighted this on his official Instagram account @erickthohir here on Tuesday.
“Pancasila in actions, united for strong Indonesia. Commemorating Pancasila Day,” he stated.
On June 1, Indonesian citizens commemorate Pancasila Day as the foundation of the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia (NKRI). Pancasila Day is replete with historical values. The five principles of Pancasila have a philosophical meaning as the nation’s views of life, he noted.
Industry Minister Agus Gumiwang Kartasasmita had earlier urged industrial players to interpret Pancasila Day as the orientation to make Indonesia more advanced by developing human resources and boosting the value-add of natural products in a bid to bolster the structures of national industries.
“For me, Pancasila is so Indonesia. Hence, in the context of Pancasila Day, industrial players have to interpret it as the orientation to make Indonesia more advanced by developing human resources and boosting the value-add of natural products in attempts to strengthen our industrial structures,” Kartasasmita noted.
In accordance with the President Joko Widodo’s instruction for the industrial sector at the Pancasila Day commemoration, the 4.0 industrial revolution has to be utilized optimally.
Meanwhile, Chairman of the Indonesian Food and Beverage Producers Association (Gapmmi) Adhi Lukman stated that Pancasila is the fundamental philosophy that offers the national nuance, so that economical players sense comfort in doing their businesses.
