“I also want to express my highest appreciation to all working groups and engagement groups for their dedication, contribution, thoughts, and contributions to the G20 Indonesia Presidency,” he said.

Jokowi also revealed that apart from the declaration, the Indonesian Presidency had also succeeded in producing concrete results, namely work results which contained a list of cooperation projects for G20 member countries and invitations. Jokowi believes that this cooperation project will help bring the work of the G20 closer to the people.

Finally, Jokowi closed the long G20 event
