Furthermore, Arief also explained the duties and functions of Cabinet Secretariat in assisting the President and Vice President.

“Cabinet Secretariat is tasked with providing cabinet management support to the President and Vice President in administering the government,” said Arief.

As a manifestation of this role, Arief added, Cabinet Secretariat oversees government programs and policies from the beginning to the end, including planning, implementation and evaluation.

In addition, Arief underlined that Cabinet Secretariat is also in charge of managing cabinet meetings, the highest forum for policy making in the cabinet.

“The cabinet meeting is [an event] through which the President decides on policies that must be implemented by ministries or institutions. The results of cabinet meetings, known as cabinet minutes, must be carried out by ministers,” said Arief.

Meanwhile, Danil explained the importance of the national One Map Policy in supporting development programs in the country, including the national strategic program (PSN).

“One of the most common PSN problems is on land [acquisition],” Danil said.

Danil stated that one of the goals of PSN development is to speed up development in the infrastructure sector as well as to increase Indonesia’s competitiveness.

“One of our weaknesses that causes our economic competitiveness to be less competitive is the very high logistics costs,” said Danil, adding that the current development carried out by the Government is not only concentrated in one region. (TGH/UN)(KA/FI)
