Boston / August 17, 2017 - A community gathering featuring the Deputy Governor-elect of Jakarta, Sandiaga Uno, was held today at Vanderbilt Hall, Harvard Medical School in Boston. The event was part of ICONE's Indonesian Independence Day community celebration series in New England. Mr. Uno shared his views on some of Jakarta and Indonesia’s current issues and motivated the local Indonesian diasporas to stay united and productive as a community. The event was attended by Indonesian graduate students and professionals currently residing in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
Thank you to Olla Chas (Co-Founder & President of ICONE, Inc.) and the two Indonesian graduate students from Harvard University, Nanda Prasetya and Talitha Chairunissa, who helped spearhead this event into realization.
