“We can say Cabinet Secretariat has one hundred percent implemented bureaucratic simplification,” he added.

Cabinet Secretariat has also made numerous improvements and innovations in carrying out its tasks of assisting the president and vice president in the administration of the Government. One of them is holding online Cabinet Meetings during the COVID-19 pandemic, said the Deputy.

“The President made this change for the first time in a cabinet meeting. This Cabinet Secretariat proposal had a huge impact and was finally adopted nationally,” he said.

“If it works, that’s one of the roles of Cabinet Secretariat, and if it doesn’t work then that’s also the influence of Cabinet Secretariat,” he explained.

Andi also expressed his appreciation for the Cabinet Secretariat’s accomplishments and progress. He also expressed hope that the Cabinet Secretariat will be able to not only maintain but also improve these accomplishments.

“Of course, we also hope that during the SAKIP and RB evaluation this time, we can obtain and discover new innovations made by the Cabinet Secretariat, as well as follow up on the notes and recommendations that we have submitted in the 2021 SAKIP and RB evaluation report,” Andi concluded.
