Press Statement of President of the Republic of Indonesia on Social Assistance Distribution at Dobo Post Office, Aru Islands Regency, Maluku Province, September 15, 2022
Today we once again distributed direct cash assistance for fuel oil (BLT BBM) in Aru [Islands] regency, particularly in Dobo. The distribution was just finished.
And I need to state that as of today, the Government has disbursed [BLT BBM] to 8,179,000 [people] in 461 regencies and cities. The number has increased from 431 to 461 now. The progress is rapid.
We hope that with the speed of the BLT BBM distribution, the people’s purchasing power, the people’s consumption rate does not decrease.
