BANDUNG CITY- West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil reminded that creativity is the main capital for the progress of West Java in the future.
West Java cannot rely on natural resources or energy forever, because one day it will run out. But if human resources are made as investments, they will produce changes.
As stated by the Governor at the Inauguration of Management and Chords of the Indonesian Creative Cities Network (ICCN) 2019-2022 period at Simpul Space Jalan Braga, Bandung City, Saturday (7/12/19).
Emil - greeting Ridwan Kamil - hopes for the management of the ICCN which is chaired by Fiki Satari for the period 2019 - 2022. ICCN is a network of creative cities, currently has 211 cities / regencies in Indonesia.
"So I appeal to all those present here, one of which I always believe is legacy. That's the cool language, but our language is trace. Second, don't be surprised by disruption, "said Emil.
In addition, he also reminded the four values ??expected by the management to have technical competence, struggle competence, social competence and sincerity competence.
"I hope Kang Fiki, yes, can be measured. All that is said must be measured. So if we gather again in December 2020 there must be a kaleidoscope of progress, "he said.
Today the community sees the trail. "What is the definition of a trail? Sorry, there are buildings, there are products, there are works. So that people see oh the presence of the organization is beneficial, "he stressed.
Emil added, creative people should not just narrate and theorize without any tangible results that benefit the community. Then the work that has been done can be appreciated and will continue to be remembered, as it has been done before.
According to Emil, currently West Java is a barometer of national creativity. With the organization that will be inaugurated, creative centers will be presented in 27 districts / cities, and the budget is also there.
"Hopefully West Java can also be a mentor in cities that are still developing. Because I experienced this process, there are those who are positioned 1.0, 2.0 in terms of it, "he concluded.
The ICCN initiation began when the "10 Creative Cities Principles" were declared in Bandung together with the holding of the Creative Cities Conference on 26-27 April 2015. ICCN was formed to coincide with the first Indonesia Creative Cities Conference activity on 22-25 October 2015 in Solo. Now ICCN is chaired by Fiki Satari for the period 2019 - 2022.
