How do you think the country is doing now?
I think the country is doing well now. Education is improving and the economy is getting better, even though in some regions it needs to be improved.
Is the central government in Jakarta doing enough for the regions?
If you were running the country, what three things would you fix or change immediately?
I would change the education of the young generations. I can’t think of anything else.
What do you think about Bali’s government?
It’s really good. I’m really happy with it.
Are you worried about the deadly outbreak of rabies in Bali?
Yes. The government has handled the issue but there are still a lot of stray dogs on the streets.
Indonesia is made up of more than 17,500 islands, many religions, dozens of ethnic groups and hundreds of dialects. Therefore, is it reasonable to expect “Unity in Diversity,” as the founding fathers declared?
I think we are united.
What are the qualities of an Indonesian?
We’re friendly and quiet.
What for you has been Indonesia’s greatest moment since it declared independence in 1945?
There hasn’t been such a moment yet.
