President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

Yesterday, we distributed Fuel Cash Assistance in Sentani district, Jayapura city, then in Saumlaki city, Tanimbar Islands in Maluku province, this morning, we are distributing Fuel Cash Assistance in Lampung province. It means, the Cash Assistance Program has started, and I can see that it has been going well, the system earlier was running well.

Reporter

Sir, reports from the community said that this Cash Assistance Program is not right on target. Any words regarding that, sir?

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

This is what we will disburse, Rp20.6 million. It’s impossible for us to be 100 percent accurate. Probably there will be one, two, three that are not accurate, because we need to disburse to a lot of people.

Reporter

Is it going well so far, sir?

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

Good, running well, alhamdulillah, thank God, fine. We check on the ground, everything is good.

Reporter

When will it be completed, sir?

This is continual work. We will start to disburse them next week to all cities (and) regencies.

Thank you, sir.

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)
