Statement of President of the Republic of Indonesia at the Inspection of Angso Duo Market to Distribute Direct Cash Assistance (BLT) for Cooking Oil, Jambi City, Jambi Province, April 7, 2022
This morning I visited Angso Duo Market in Jambi city, Jambi province to distribute the Direct Cash Assistance (BLT) for cooking oil amounting to Rp300.000,- (per beneficiary) that is expected to ease the burden and provide subsidy for people, especially street vendors selling fritters.
The BLT has been distributed and it is our hope that the assistance will not only be distributed in this province (Jambi province).
It also expected that the BLT for cooking oil can be immediately distributed in all provinces throughout Indonesia, as I ordered earlier, before Eid. [The distribution] must be completed at a maximum of one week before Eid.
That concludes my speech. I thank you. (AP/EP)
