INDUSTRY.co.id – Jakarta – Elected President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) delivered his winning speech on Sunday, July 14th, in which he described some of his ideas and policy plans for the next five years titled “Indonesian Vision.” Jokowi highlighted a lot on the urgency to adapt to global development, to change our mindset, and to open to investment as wide as possible.
