“This is a special moment for Cabinet Secretariat and also for me, because it is the first time that Malaysian delegation visits to Cabinet Secretariat’s office” Purnomo said.
Furthermore, Purnomo explained about the three presidential institutions in Indonesia, namely Ministry of State Secretariat, Cabinet Secretariat, and Presidential Staff Office.
He also explained that Cabinet Secretariat has a duty to support the President and Vice President of the Republic of Indonesia in government’s cabinet management. The institution chaired by Cabinet Secretary regularly gives policy recommendations which are to be considered and decided by the President.
