Date 22 September 2021
President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo handed over 124.120 certificates of land redistribution for agrarian reforms objects (TORA) on Wednesday (22/09). The hybrid ceremony held at Bogor Presidential Palace in West Java province was participated in by representatives of the certificate recipients that were present on the location, while other recipients participated online.
“To coincide with the momentum of the National Agrarian and Spatial Day 2021, today I will hand over 124,120 certificates of land redistribution from 26 provinces and 127 regencies and cities, while the remaining 5,512 certificates are certificates of the result of agrarian conflict resolution in 7 provinces and 8 regencies and cities that were the Government’s priority in 2021,” said the President.
On that occasion, the Head of State said that the handover of the certificates is special handover because the land certificates handed over by the Government are certificates of the state’s new land from the Government for people as a result of agrarian conflict resolution, abandoned land, and the release of forest areas.
Furthermore, President Jokowi underscored that the land handed over by the Government should be optimally utilized in order to improve its productivity.
“I order Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Villages, Development of Disadvantaged Regions and Transmigration, Ministry of Cooperatives and SMEs, and Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries to disburse assistance in form of capital, seeds, fertilizers, trainings, so that the land owned by the beneficiaries of the agrarian reforms program will be more productive. Once again, it aims to improve land productivity so that the land can provide yields to help owners’ daily life,” the President said.
“Ladies and Gentlemen, all certificate recipients, I urge that the certificate must be kept well and safe. Do not let it disappear. Do not damage it. Do not switch its functions or give it to someone else. Please, keep it well and safe,” President Jokowi remarked. (TGH/UN) (AP/LW)
