“We have held a meeting on the Grand Design of National Sports as a follow-up to President Joko Widodo’s directive at the commemoration of 2022 National Sports Day,” Effendy said here on Wednesday.
The meeting discussed the implementation of DBON, which requires support from all ministries/institutions, local governments, the public, and the business or private sector, he informed.
“The government will also synchronize the targets of the National Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJMN) and the Government Work Plan (RKP) with the targets contained in the DBON,” he added.
Effendy said that the government will also establish 10 young athletes development centers in a number of regions in Indonesia.
“There will be 10 young athletes development centers, which currently have been established in four provinces, namely Jakarta, West Java, Central Java, and East Java,” he added.
The government will also intensify the comprehensive coaching of young athletes.
“Everything must be done comprehensively, from the aspects of training, nutrition fulfillment, and life skills education. Academic education must also be paid attention to so it is not left behind,” the minister said.
To realize DBON, the involvement of many parties is needed, the minister emphasized.”These many ongoing programs emphasize the need for all parties’ involvement to support the National Sports Grand Design,” he said.
The ministerial coordination meeting, which was also attended by Youth and Sports Minister Zainudin Amali and Deputy Health Minister Dante Saksono, was held to follow up on the issuance of Presidential Regulation No. 86 of 2021 concerning the Grand Design of National Sports.
