Jakarta: President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo will attend the 10th Islamic Students Associaton Alumni (KAHMI) National Congress in Medan, North Sumatra on Friday, November 17, 2017.

Jokowi departed from Halim Perdanakusuma military airbase around noon. The PDIP politician was accompanied by a number of high-ranking officials.

The national congress will start at 16.00 Western Indonesia Time. The annual event will be attended by as many as 1400 participants.

Earlier this month, Jokowi received the KAHMI leadership at the State Palace. The former Jakarta governor discussed various development issues during the meeting.

Last week, Jokowi awarded the national hero status to HMI founder Lafran Pane. The former furniture salesman named four hew national heroes during the Heroes Day commemoration.
