Good morning,

1. I would like to begin by thanking God the Almighty, Allah SWT who has blessed us with the opportunity to meet here in the occasion of Bank Indonesia Pre Annual Investment Forum 2017. I would like to express my sincere appreciation towards our international guest speakers who have travelled a long way to attend this event. I also hope that you can take time to explore the beauty of East Java as part of the magnificent Indonesia.

2. The main agenda of this forum is to discuss about the "Global Economic and Market Outlook 2017". I believe now is a perfect time for such discussions to take place, in the face of heightened global uncertainty. On this note, I encourage all of us here today to actively participate in exchanging views and ideas so that we can have a spirited discussion filled with fruitful conclusions.
