Cabinet Secretary Pramono Anung talks with the Governor of the Special Region of Yogyakarta Sri Sultan Hamengkubuwono X and Managing Director of Angkasa Pura I Sulistyo Wimbo Hardjito, at the Presidential Office, Jakarta, on Monday (9/5)

President Joko ‘Jokowi’ Widodo has previously emphasized on the things relating ease of doing business and said he will fully evaluate the 1st to 12th Economic Policy Packages.

“The evaluation which involves the Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin), Indonesian Young Entrepreneurs Association (HIPMI), businesspeople and regulators aims to oversee whether there are still handicaps in several sectors or not,” Cabinet Secretary Pramono Anung told the reporters after a limited meeting at the Presidential Office, Jakarta, on Monday (9/5) afternoon.

According to Pramono, there are four points to be carried out, among others:

First is the de-regulation on ease of doing business will be carried on by referring to the countries that rank in the top 30 in ease of doing business.

“Because the President wants to improve Indonesia’s rank in ease of doing business from 109 to 40, then benchmarking must be established. For the record, the benchmarking is countries that listed in the top 30 in ease of doing business,” Pramono said.

Second, once Jakarta and Surabaya, as two cities where the dissemination takes place be able to carried out the dissemination well, both cities will become the role models.

“It will be followed and implemented by other regions and make it easier,” Pramono said.

Third, Pramono added, the apparatus must indeed be prepared. Prepared to adjust to the regulations that have been changed. Do not only conduct regulation while there is no change on the ground.

“Thus, a change on the ground is important. The President is scheduled to directly inspect several locations, particularly Surabaya and Jakarta,” Pramono explained.

Pramono added that the President has instructed Coordinating Minister for the Economy Darmin Nasution and Head of Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM) Franky Sibarani to monitor the whole improvement process, whether the process is in line with the plan or not.

“We do hope we can improve our rank in ease of doing business from the previous 109 to 40,” Pramono said.

Pramono also asserted that the rank in ease of doing business is not negotiable.

“The target is to rank 40. Thus, benchmarking procedure will be conducted referring to the countries that rank first to 30 in ease of doing business,” Pramono concluded. (DID/FID/ES) (RAS/EP/YM/Naster)
