Minister of Education, Culture, Research and Technology Nadiem Anwar Makarim in his remarks at the Commemoration Ceremony of the 77th Independence Day of the Republic of Indonesia which was read by the Rector of Udayana University said that 77 years ago with great courage our predecessors proclaimed the proclamation of flying the Sang Saka Merah Putih flag, stating that independence and sovereignty of the nation, then independent Indonesia was born. The struggle for independence has been recorded in history. We can't stop moving and walking. 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".

We are currently proving this spirit together through the G20 presidency in 2022, with the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Technology (Kemendikbudristek) 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 Learning platform. We have provided evidence that efforts to expand access to quality education can be carried out through a breakthrough in the School Operational Assistance mechanism and various scholarship support programs.

We have also convinced the world that the young generation of Indonesia has been trained in the world of work and social life, the provisions of which have been obtained since they were in college through various off-campus learning programs that are gathered in the Merdeka Campus. This is only a small part of Merdeka Learning's breakthrough, which has now reached 21 episodes. There are many more episodes of Merdeka Learning that we will launch until all children throughout Indonesia feel true independence, namely learning happily, working without obstacles, running towards the future with courage as Pancasila Students. Congratulations on commemorating the 77th Anniversary of the Independence of the Republic of Indonesia, especially for educators, education staff and students throughout the country, let's continue our mutual cooperation to restore and awaken an independent Indonesia, realizing Free Learning.
