Regarding drugs, the Governor of Bali Wayan Koster said that drugs have now entered remote villages. Then during the pandemic, it even became a time when drug cases increased everywhere and Indonesia is now not only a transit point and a consumer, but has become a producer.


"Drug abuse not only has the potential to damage the future of the younger generation, but has become a source of rampant criminal acts that can become an obstacle to national development," he explained.


Regarding Corruption, Koster said that the high number of corruption cases can lead to moral degradation which also causes significant losses to the state. This is indicated by state losses reaching Rp 56.7 trillion and bribery cases reaching Rp 322 billion. This amount is equivalent to 3,000 (buildings, ed) puskesmas and 1,750 primary schools.

Head of BNN RI Komjen. Pol. Petrus R Golose, who got the first opportunity, said that Indonesia is a potential market for illicit drug trafficking with the percentage of users reaching 1.8 percent or equivalent to 3.4 million people. Eighty percent of drugs enter by sea which is difficult to detect, because the radar they use is turned off.


"VUCA itself, which is part of the discussion theme, is an abbreviation of Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity. VUCA can mean where the world we live in is changing very quickly, unexpectedly and influenced by many factors that are difficult to control and truth and reality become very subjective. The biggest impact of the world shift is due to the influence of technology which is developing very rapidly,"  Golose said.

Head of BNPT, Komjen. Pol. Boy Rafli Amar said that the deviant ideology of terrorism justifies violence as a way to achieve goals and becomes an ideology that is anti-democratic, anti-human and very intolerant.


"It becomes even more dangerous when the ideology of terrorism and radicalism that comes from outside is forced into our country by including narratives and religious texts that make it very likely to be indoctrinated in ordinary people.

The goal of terrorists is to destroy the country, so I invite the younger generation and all of us to continue to socialize, teach how the history of our nation is. The four consensus of our country that we agree on must not be interfered with by other ideologies," he stressed.


At the end of the event, Governor Koster handed over a souvenir in the form of Balinese Endek Woven Fabric to the Head of BNN RI, Komjen. Pol. Petrus Reinhard Golose, Chairman of the KPK, Komjen. Pol. Firli Bahuri, and the Head of BNPT, Komjen. Pol. Boy Rafli Amar.(gix)
