President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

Well, I think we know that Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal, and Security Affairs was formerly a Commander of the Indonesian National Defense Forces (TNI), I think he is well prepared to deal with political, legal, and security affairs. And, I have ordered several things related to security and order, and also things related to support for investments that enter Indonesia. I think so.

Second, the target for Cultivation Rights Title (HGU) for carbon trading related to the Government Regulation must immediately be achieved because many [investors] showed their interest. Third, regarding the Complete Systematic Land Registration (PTSL) target of 120 million, 120 million plots to be registered on the PTSL, we must be able to achieve it, I think so.
