Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh,
Today, we have invited all heads of state institution: the House of Representatives (DPR), Peoples Consultative Assembly (MPR), Regional Representative Council (DPD), Supreme Court (MA), Constitutional Court (MK), Supreme Audit Agency (BPK), and Judicial Commission (KY). The intention of the meeting is to build the spirit of togetherness and optimism in all programs that have been and will be implemented by the Government. This afternoon, we will talk about several issues on economic equality policy related to socio-economic gap.
We will follow this up by redistributing assets and conducting agrarian reforms that are expected to reduce the gap in the society. We will start handing out concessions to the people, customary lands, cooperatives, Islamic boarding schools, and we will also accelerate the distribution of certificates to the people who do not have them yet, so that they could have collateral, mortgage in order to get capital from banks.
Those were the points in that meeting.
Wassalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
