The information in the G20pedia will continue to be updated according to the latest developments in the implementation of the 2022 G20 agenda.
Jakarta (ANTARA) – The directorate general of information and public communication (IKP) at the Communication and Informatics Ministry on Wednesday released an electronic handbook called G20pedia to strengthen public understanding of the intergovernmental forum.
The release of the handbook is important since Indonesia is the only developing country in Southeast Asia that joins the G20, director general of IKP at the ministry, Usman Kansong, said in a statement issued on Wednesday.
Thus, Indonesia has a strategic opportunity to participate in determining the direction and policy for post-pandemic global economic recovery, he added.
The information contained in the G20pedia is important and should be understood by the public since, in addition to providing an understanding of Indonesia’s activities at the international level, it offers an insight on the benefits of Indonesia’s G20 Presidency for the community, Kansong said.
Hence, the public can take an active role in making the international event a success, he added.
“As stated by President Joko Widodo, it is hoped that Indonesia’s G20 Presidency will not only focus on the implementation of the event, but it will also have a positive impact on national and global socio-economic recovery,” the director general remarked.
In the G20pedia, technical terms regarding the G20 have been simplified to aid public understanding, he said.
The electronic handbook has two parts: one provides an overview of the G20 and the other covers Indonesia’s G20 Presidency, he informed.
Furthermore, Kasong said he expected the electronic book, which is also available in English, to serve as a reference for the mass media as well as the public in seeking information regarding G20 activities under Indonesia’s Presidency.
“The information in the G20pedia will continue to be updated according to the latest developments in the implementation of the 2022 G20 agenda,” he added.
The electronic handbook can be accessed through linktr.ee/g20pedia and the official G20 website at www.g20.org.
