President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

I just met with fishermen; both those who fish or go to the sea.  I also went to a place where they’re dry-salting fishes. I think all is good but I received a complaint about subsidized diesel oil that is often hard to get. I have talked with the minister by phone and ordered him to resolve that matter.

 

Reporter

Is there any other complaint Sir? How about the request to rejuvenate fishing equipment?

 

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

Right, the first complaint is about subsidized diesel, and the second one is rejuvenation of fishing equipment. I had talked with Cabinet Secretary and Minister of Fisheries and Maritime Affairs and asked them to procure 15 PK outboard motors. I guess we need to procure a new one.

 

Reporter

Mr. President, how about the progress of Kalimantan Industrial Park Indonesia (KIPI)?

 

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

I have mentioned it twice earlier.

 

Reporter

How about the addition of quota for subsidized diesel?

 

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

I will have a discussion about that matter since I also find the number is not enough.
