Thank God, we achieved Best Paper in the category of Human Rights and Democracy. This event was attended by total of 165 delegates in 70 teams from more than 13 countries,” Muhammad Bintang explained (11/22).

Bintang further said that the paper discussed issues that had boomed in the society which were related to the proposal of government policy in involving foreign airlines as domestic service providers in an effort to reduce the high-ticket prices for domestic flight routes in Indonesia.
