Minister of Youth and Sports Dito Ariotedjo revealed that the Government is preparing an electronic one-stop system to facilitate licensing for arts and sports activities.

“So, this [meeting] solidifies and finalizes matters related to the upcoming one-stop licensing for arts and sports activities, one-stop licensing, and all of them will be submitted electronically, thus reducing interaction between business players organizing arts and sports activities and authorized officials,” Dito said in a press statement after a limited meeting, at the Presidential Palace, Jakarta, Tuesday (08/01).

The system, Dito added, allows organizers to directly monitor the permits submitted for their events. Dito also expressed belief that the system can improve transparency, accountability, and time efficiency.

“I think this is the wish and dream of the EO industry, because we understand very well about the many licenses that must be obtained, because it relates to the public every time they organize [an event], and now we will create an integrated one-stop system,” he said.

The Minister expressed hope that this policy can lead to an easier and more measurable organization of events. In addition, the Government and other related institutions can also directly monitor these activities.

“So, in terms of safety and appropriateness, we can monitor it more easily. So, we can do the controlling before the event is held because this is a one-stop, so the monitoring is very centralized,” he said.

Dito also expressed hope that the policy can improve the economy of Indonesia’s youths because the majority of arts and sports activities are practiced by the youths and creative industry players with a young and productive age range. “Hopefully, this is a breakthrough that will boost the economy of the youths,” he said.
