Moderator to Joko: Why should Indonesia be independent economically? What is your stance on the government’s debts?
Jakarta Globe Blogs @jgblogs
Joko: We need to provide space for traditional markets and street vendors. I've done that in my tenure as Solo mayor and Jakarta governor
Jakarta Globe Blogs @jgblogs
Joko: In regards of our debt, we need to minimize state budget corruption through e-budgeting and e-purchasing systems.
Jakarta Globe Blogs @jgblogs
Joko: This will create a more efficient and effective state budget. The remaining funds can then be used to cover up this debt.
Jakarta Globe Blogs @jgblogs
Moderator: gov’t has allocated a large budget to reduce poverty. What do you think is wrong with the system in terms of poverty reduction?
Jakarta Globe Blogs @jgblogs
Joko: It’s not just about allocating enough budget but we need to prioritize the establishment of a good system.
Jakarta Globe Blogs @jgblogs
Joko: That is why education and healthcare has always been our focus (in Jakarta and Solo)
Jakarta Globe Blogs @jgblogs
Joko: Need to invest in other regions so that people will not migrate into big cities.
