Plataran launches three campaign themes this year, all anchored on the three primary pillars: True to Nature, True to Community, and True to Culture. By incorporating Plataran's genetics and DNA into the development of ecotourism, Plataran achieves a larger goal, namely to invite the younger generation to demonstrate their creativity, encourage them to continue to innovate, and to have an identity as responsible Indonesian citizens through the principles of true identity, integrity, creativity, and originality.

“The year 2023 is a year of gratitude for Plataran to God Almighty because Plataran has not only gone through the dark tunnel of Covid for almost 3 years, but Plataran has also continued to grow and develop extraordinarily during the pandemic. Therefore Plataran's gratitude will be manifested in 2023 as a year of transition from the sea to the ocean opportunities & challenges by working harder, being creative, responsible and continuing to achieve and contribute to Plataran's loyal customers, the community, and being the pride of Indonesia on the national and international stages through the launch of the tagline True Indonesian Icon - True National Pride.” Said Yozua Makes as CEO and Founder of Plataran Indonesia Group.
