This theme is inspired from the dynamics of the communities in Jakarta before the seemingly divided Pilkada (Jakarta Elections), but after the tentative announcement of the results, we expect the community to be reunited. As we observe, all parties embrace the other sides and carry forward the process of democracy in Indonesia. “Indeed, Indonesia is made up of a diverse society. Starting from culture, behavior, and thinking. But, this is clear evidence of how this diversity does not make us fragmented. In time, the people of Indonesia can unite to achieve a common goal “, explains Hermawan Kartajaya on the concept of Indonesia (Re) United.
The Minister of Tourism of the Republic of Indonesia, Arief Yahya who attended the Jakarta Marketing Week 2017 for the second time, also expressed his appreciation for MarkPlus as the organizer. “This event held for a week with highly innovative and full of creative content. From the theme of BUMN to tourism. This event can be a pioneer for similar events that must be followed by other institutions in promoting various potential areas in Indonesia “, said Arief at the closing ceremony JMW 2017.
