We congratulate all the winners for their achievement. May you all extend the inspiration to Indonesian young intellectuals to strive for excellence through their works.

On behalf of the committee, we thank every single party who have devoted their time and energy to support all events in the commemoration. Special thank goes to the Indonesian Embassy in Canberra, particularly the Education and Cultural Attaché section, for their full support, without which this commemoration would have never been a reality.
Have a productive day and happy Independence Day!
