What you were talking about with the people and the traders here, Sir?

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

The most important thing here in Muaro Bungo Market is renovation, so the traders will sell inside the market. Why they do not want to sell inside? Because, it is dark inside the market, so it definitely needs some improvements that will later be carried out by Minister for Public Works and Public Housing. I have just ordered Minister for Public Works and Public Housing, so that the traders will feel comfortable, the market will be neat, there are enough parking spots available, and we hope that the traditional market will stay busy.

Journalist

Sir, what are the most promising potential sectors of Jambi province that can be improved in the future?

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

I think there are so many, especially in people’s farming and agriculture. I also acknowledge that the people’s mining is actually promising, but it has to be managed in a modern way, unlike the people’s mining in the old days. It has a huge potential; it’s quite apparent. Also, the local people here are all wonderful, whether in Jambi, in Muaro Bungo, in Merangin, in Tebo, everyone is kind.

Journalist

How are the price stability and the basic commodities, Sir? Are they remain stable?

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

The price is stable. Everything is going very well.

Journalist

Thank you, Sir.
