Mr Luhut also reiterated Mr Joko's commitment to solve the issue of transboundary haze. "He understands very much about the issue of environment, especially the issue of the Sumatra smoke exported to Singapore. This is one issue he's going to tackle in the near future. Of course it cannot be done overnight, it will take some time, but there is the intention to fix this problem."
"We have made various changes to help our NSmen better prepare for their fitness test and also to make it more convenient for them. Some of these recent initiatives include the IPT-in-the-Park, which will bring greater convenience to the NSmen. We hope all these will help the NSmen improve their fitness eventually. We are very happy to see NSmen taking charge of their own fitness because that tells people that they are committed" said Chan
"Take Bangkok's International Festival of Music and Dance, for example. They always bring the same type of ballet and opera. There's nothing new. And there's only Thailand Cultural Centre and super small-scale theatres. There's no variety. And there are shows that wouldn't work either at the cultural centre or any blackbox spaces."
...NSman Joel Chua, who needs to do the IPT because he failed the 2.4km run and chin-up stations, said the location has benefitted him greatly. "Having the IPT here in Bishan Park makes it a lot more convenient for me" he explained
