First of all, let me begin by praising God Almighty for His blessings that we may congregate here today at the 2018 Bank Indonesia Annual Meeting. I would like to express my heartfelt appreciation to the President of the Republic of Indonesia and all guests for attending this event.

I would like to congratulate and thank the bankers, businesses and individuals who received a total of 40 awards in 4 areas and 14 categories of the Bank Indonesia Award 2018, covering monetary stability and financial system management, the payment system and Rupiah currency management, those supporting Indonesia policies as well as individual contributions. In particular, I would like to express my highest appreciation of MSMEs in various regions who have contributed greatly to control inflation. These awards are presented annually and this year, we have combined the ceremony with the Bank Indonesia's Annual Meeting as a form of appreciation and national recognition to our partners who have supported Bank Indonesia in conducting its tasks.
