The Vice Bupati Made Sudiana was then invited up to address us.
He expressed on behalf of the Government, the People of Badung Regency and The Badung Regent, Anak Agung Gde Agung, what an honour it was for them to receive the Peace Torch and to host this Ceremony.
“This event is really appropriate with the spirit and the values of the Indonesian personality, specially the people of Badung Regency, such as brotherhood, peace and especially the life philosophy of the people in Badung Regency…
We also believe that sport can play a very important role in bringing people together that can unite people from many countries. Besides that, sport can give us health, which is an investment for us. Through this event I hope I can invite other people, especially our young generation, to stay healthy and keep peace in the world. This important thing, this event, can inspire all people for peace to become the need of our life.”
