The seminar was very enjoyable which was attended by more than 200 participants. GEMA also performed a traditional dance as the opening of the seminar. The material presented by the speakers was very interesting, so many seminar participants asked questions to the two speakers, as well as discussions between participants and the two speakers.

The holding of the NETs National Seminar is expected to be a forum for students and other young generations to gain insight into existing economic issues, as well as a means of discussion with a large scope to respond to and address economic issues and government policies in the economic field.
