REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, BOGOR -- President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) has called on students to move quickly to respond to global changes while taking anticipatory measures in the face of the industrial revolution 4.0. While opening the congress of the Indonesian Christian Student Movement (GMKI) here on Friday, Jokowi affirmed that rapid changes in technology and global conditions must be addressed carefully.

"We must realize that there are changes occurring globally now. These changes are so fast. We must know and follow all, especially the young people," the president noted.

The students and participants of the GMKI congress were enthusiastic to hear the statement of the president. On the occasion Jokowi remarked that youngsters, the spearhead of the nation, were the most capable of following and taking the required measures in the face of the changes in the world.

Especially, the fourth industrial revolution, whose changes are said to be three thousand times faster than the first industrial revolution, requires the Indonesian people to really prepare themselves to be able to compete.

"There is something we have to prepare, which we have to take precautionary measures against as our big task. We can make a leap if we can plan and anticipate the changes. Otherwise, we will be really left behind," he emphasized.

The president said that the leap in progress and adaptation to global changes can only be realized if all elements of the nation unite and work together for the great interests of the Indonesian people. At the end of his speech, the head of state invited all parties to maintain harmony and unity while preparing for the challenges of the times.

"Let us prepare ourselves to deal with these changes. Once again, our unity and harmony must be maintained," the president remarked.

Also accompanying the president on the occasion were Minister of Research, Technology and Higher Education M. Nasir, Minister of Law and Human Rights Yasonna Laoly, and General Chairperson of GMKI Sahat PP Martin Philip Sinurat.
