Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs Airlangga Hartarto conveyed Indonesia's G20 Presidency aims for the world to emerge from the crisis and become more resilient. To achieve the goal, it requires a transformation in the way of working, a change in mindset and business model, as well as opportunity utilization amid the pandemic to bring new breakthroughs.
