Dear all keynote speakers and all seminar participants. First of all, let me welcome you to our beloved province, West Nusa Tenggara. We have two relatively big islands, Lombok and Sumbawa. And there are hundreds of small Island surrounding our province that still need to be developed, especially for tourism. There are several destinations that have been well known worldwide, such as Senggigi, Gili Trawangan, Mojo island and recently Mandalika Resort. Secondly, I really appreciate the idea of conducting this international seminar with the Theme: Implementing Rural Sciences for Sustainable Development Goals Achievement. There are never-ending issues regarding the theme that can be elaborated in order to achieve Sustainable Development Goals especially for our community in this region. Even though our province was inaugurated as the best province in the nation in terms of Millenium Development Goals 2015, we feel that we still need to working hard and thinking smart in the future in order to reach the best achievement. Therefore, this international seminar is one of the best strategic and hopefully effective way of finding the closest path that we are looking for. Do your best, enjoy your visit to Lombok Island, West Nusa Tenggara Province. Governor.
