Campus.UBMG - In celebrating the Independence Day of the Republic of Indonesia, the Bina Mandiri Gorontalo Foundation (YBMG) held a flag-raising ceremony for the Red and White which was attended by the entire Academic Community, both UBM Gorontalo, Postgraduate Program (PPs) UNBITA Gorontalo, and SMK Bina Mandiri Bone Bolango, Wednesday (17 /8/2022).

The chairman of YBMG, Dr. Ir. H. Azis Rachman MM, IPM acted as Ceremony Master in delivering the Speech of the Minister of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology (Mendikbudristek), Nadiem Anwar Makarim. In his speech, Nadiem said that the struggle for independence has been recorded in history.

"We must not stop moving and moving. Especially this year, we commemorate the 77th Anniversary of the Independence of the Republic of Indonesia in 2022 with the spirit of "Recovering Faster, Rising Stronger," said Azis.

"We are currently proving this spirit together through the G20 presidency in 2022, with the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Technology playing a major role in fostering global collaboration to work together to restore and revive the education system. We have given an example to the world how the learning process in Indonesia is currently more in favor of students and frees teachers to be creative in teaching through the Merdeka Curriculum and the Merdeka Mengajar platform. Likewise in the cultural sector, the Ministry of Education and Culture in the G20 forum encourages countries in the world to provide funding support for artists and cultural actors so that they can inspire again with their best works, especially in the post-pandemic period. This initiative is a continuation of the breakthrough cultural endowment fund and the first cultural channel in Indonesia that we launched and has provided many benefits for our cultural promoters,” said Dr. Azis Rachman read the Mendikbudristek's speech.

Not only that, the Minister of Education and Culture through the speech delivered also congratulated the commemoration of the 77th Anniversary of the Independence of the Republic of Indonesia in 2022 for all levels of Indonesian society. Especially for educators, education staff, and students throughout the country.

"Let's continue our mutual cooperation to restore and awaken an independent Indonesia, to realize Merdeka Belajar," he concluded.

On that occasion, there was also the inauguration of the Campus 2 UBM Gorontalo Intellectuals Corridor, as well as the inauguration of officials at UBM Gorontalo which was coupled with the signing of the MOU between Bank Syariah Indonesia (BSI) Gorontalo and UBM Gorontalo. (ais/rls/at)
