Moores Rowland Celebrates the 77th Independence Day of the Republic of Indonesia.
Happy 77th birthday, Indonesia!
Since the declaration of independence by Soekarno on August 17, 1945, and official independence after four years of war with the Dutch in 1949, Indonesia has gone through many ups and downs. Now we are in the Reformation Era and Indonesia's people live in a democracy with more freedom of the press. We should be proud because 2022 marks the year of Indonesia's presidency of the G20, which it will host in Bali this November. And in 2023 Indonesia will carry out the duties of the ASEAN presidency.
In the spirit of '45', the freedom fighters and founding fathers of the nation, Moores Rowland Indonesia again celebrated Indonesia's Independence Day with activities organized and designed by our internal committeeTaking enthusiastic part in the events celebrating Independence Day and competing for prizes prepared by the committee were Moores Rowland staffers from the Human Resources department, General Affairs support, IT and Finance, Sustainability & FIHRRST, Outsourcing, Tax, Legal and Business Development, KAP Y. Santosa and Partners, and KAP Achsin Handoko Tomo.
