"Regarding the income earned from the BUMD, there are still some BUMDs that have not contributed to PAD, while the capital budgeting budget provided through the APBD is quite large. Indeed the purpose of BUMD not only to obtain PAD, but there is a social service side there. In connection with this, to optimize the performance needs to be reviewed for unproductive BUMD, "he explained.
