The 17th of August 1945 was the most historical day for Indonesian people, when our first President, Ir. Soekarno proclaimed the Independence of Indonesia. After being under Dutch colonialism for more than three and half centuries and Japanese colonialism for three and half years, the people of Indonesia finally achieved their aspiration to become an independent nation. Because of this, there are a lot of celebrations all over the country today.
On marking the 72nd Indonesian Independence Day, Mercure Serpong Alam Sutera hold a flag raising ceremony as the greatest respect and honor. The ceremony was taken place on Thursday, August 17th, 2017, started from 7 am at main Lobby Area with the participation of employees within the departments.
