President Joko Widodo has formally invited world leaders of G20 countries to Bali next year, as Indonesia assumes the G20 Presidency following the end of this year’s summit in Rome. 

At the closing event of the G20 Rome Summit last night, Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi formally handed over the forum’s presidency to Jokowi, which was marked by a symbolic hitting of a gavel. 

“We will entertain all of you honorable ladies and gentlemen, in open space, on the beautiful beaches of Bali to inspire innovative ideas for the productivity of G20 in the future,” Jokowi said, according to an official statement. 

“See you in Indonesia.” 

Indonesia will host the G20 Summit on Oct. 30-31 in Bali next year. The country aims to push for more cooperation with world economic recovery in mind, by adopting “Recover Together, Recover Stronger” as a theme during its presidency.
