Jayapura, Papua (ANTARA) - The Papua provincial government hopes to see the values of Pancasila embedded in every young Papuan.

Acting Papua Regional Secretary Derek Hegemur called on all stakeholders to instill Pancasila values in all elements of the nation, especially the younger generation.

"Pancasila is the best ideology for Indonesians, embodying national wisdom and values," he remarked after a Pancasila commemoration event in Jayapura on Saturday.

Hegemur emphasized the importance of young Papuans strengthening their national values, particularly in today's age of open information access.

"Pancasila must remain the foundation, even amidst widespread information," he emphasized.

By strengthening Pancasila values, the younger generation can maintain their identity, uphold Pancasila principles, and critically evaluate information that may not align with Indonesia's culture and spirit, he said.

"The ease of connecting with people worldwide presents a great opportunity for young people," he highlighted.

He added that information openness allows them to encounter diverse viewpoints, fostering acceptance of differences in opinions.

Hegemur concluded by underscoring the crucial role Pancasila values play for young Papuans, equipping them to uphold the philosophy's noble ideals.
