Meanwhile, Regional Secretary of Ogan Komering Ulu (OKU) Regency Achmad Tarmizi said that the existence of MPP will have a positive impact in the community. This MPP can be utilized by the community to invest and manage other public services.
Achmad said that OKU Regency is targeting the MPP development in its area to be completed in 2021-2022. This development, he added, is the answer to the problem of services in OKU Regency, namely unintegrated-public services.
“People need swift, easy, and accurate services. These three needs can be achieved at once through the MPP,” he said.
