TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan said that Jakarta is entering the global city era. One of the reasons is because it has succeeded in holding an international event.

"In this place, two weeks ago, we have just finished a world championship, Jakarta Formula E, and it ran successfully," he said in his speech at Jakarta International Stadium (JIS), North Jakarta, Saturday, June 25.
