President Joko ‘Jokowi’ Widodo appreciated ‘the Best Minister in the World Award’ granted to Minister of Finance Sri Mulyani during the World Government Summit held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, last Sunday (11/2).

“It’s an international recognition. The Award was also personally handed over by Sheikh Mohammad bin Rashid Al Maktoum to Minister Sri Mulyani,” the President told the reporters after the Opening of Working Meeting of the Officials of Foreign Ministry with the Head of Indonesian Representatives Abroad, at Pancasila Building, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Jakarta, Monday (12/2) morning.

The President also added that the selection process involves a thorough analysis from Ernst & Young, one of the largest professional services firms in the world. “Of course all Indonesian people are proud,” he said.

The granting of this Award shows that the management of fiscal and macro economy as well as State Budget are on the right track, very effective, and carefully conducted.

“It’s an international recognition given to only one minister (in the world). I think all of us are very proud,” the President said.(DND/OJI/ES) (MMB/YM/Naster)
