The Pancasila Day commemoration that was held in the midst of the global Covid-19 pandemic, did not discourage the employee to keep following the ceremony that has started since 07.30 AM.

The Birth of Pancasila is the speech title delivered by Soekarno on the Dokuritsu Junbi Cosakai Assembly (In Bahasa Indonesia : Badan Penyelidik Usaha Persiapan Kemerdekaan”) on June 1st 1945.
Within this speech the concept and initial formula of Pancasila was first put forward by Soekarno as the foundation of an Independent Indonesia. This speech was first delivered by Soekarno as an acclimation without any title and only then got the designation as “The Birth of Pancasila” by the former chairman of BPUPKI, Dr. Radjiman Wedyodiningrat in the preface of the book containing the speech which was then recorded by BPUPKI.
Since 2017, 1st of June officially became a national holiday in remembrance of “The Birth of Pancasila”.
