Jakarta (ANTARA) – President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) has requested the Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing (PUPR) to renovate the Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) Cultural Park in Badung District, Bali Province to accommodate the G20 Summit delegates in November 2022.
He inspected the cultural park around 10:30 a.m. Central Indonesian Time (WITA) on Friday.
After accompanying the President for the review, Director General of Human Settlements at the Ministry Diana Kusumastuti said he gave a number of guidelines regarding the plan to host a dinner for G20 Summit delegates at the cultural park.
“We have been tasked with making the entrance area more spacious to allow Heads of State to walk from the vehicle drop-off point to dinner and return to the vehicles later,” the general manager said.
Besides the GWK Culture Park, President Widodo also requested the ministry to revitalize the area around the toll roads that will be used by the delegates.
Therefore, the general management will plant bougainvillea on the medians of toll roads, Kusumastuti said.
“In the meantime, on the right and left of the road, we will plant frangipani, which is a typical tree in the Bali region, as well as fragrant screw pine and some shrubs to beautify the toll road,” a- she informed.
The chief executive said she expected tree planting to take place not only along toll roads in Bali province, but also across the country.
“Therefore, the toll roads in Bali province will become a pilot project for the toll road greening program,” she added.
After reviewing the GWK Culture Park, President Widodo interacted with street vendors and stall owners at Alas Kusuma Market, Badung District, Bali Province, and paid them direct cash assistance (BLT).
