President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

It is crucial to solve issues in Blora regency one by one, particularly relating to land dispute. That is really important. If we live in a disputed land, it makes us inconvenience. So, the issues have been solved by Ministry of Agrarian Affairs and Spatial Planning/the National Land Agency (BPN). We must be grateful for it.

Second, to ensure certainty to cultivate a land within the state-owned forestry company Perhutani area, social forestry decrees are issued. The decrees also provide certainty to the people to manage the land. However, the land should be managed by adopting agroforestry system. [The land] is planted with trees, for instance teak or mahogany, and also planted with corn, cassava, or sweet potato. I think that’s how it should be.


Sir, regarding illegal levies on the street, how do you think about it?

Presiden Republik Indonesia (Joko Widodo)
Just say no; don’t give even a small amount of it.
