BALI-West Java Provincial Government under the leadership of the Governor and Vice Governor, Ridwan Kamil-Uu Ruzhanul Ulum, is committed to giving full access to the weak economic community.
For this reason, Emil, the nickname of Ridwan Kamil, said that he had a program as a step to reduce poverty and community inequality.
Emil said this when attending the International Conference on Inclusive Economic Growth: Reducing Poverty and Inequality at Anvaya Beach Hotel and Resort Bali, Kartika street, Kuta, Badung Regency, Bali Province, Wednesday (10/10/18). This conference is a series of 2018 IMF-World Bank Group Meetings Annual agenda.
"Our commitment in West Java for five years will provide full access support, help to the weakest community groups," said Emil.
Furthermore, Emil explained, West Java will have the Mesra Credit program (Sejahtera Mosque) which will be launched next month. This credit will use the mosque as a place for credit providers to be given without interest and collateral.
"So if anyone needs enough financial assistance to the mosque without interest without collateral," he explained.
In addition, there is also the One Village One Company program. This program will help increase the income of rural communities without having to travel to the city.
"We are collaborating with universities, so the One Village One Company program will be the alumni of the university who have just graduated two to three years. After that he can stay in the village or transfer the company to another," he explained.
According to Emil, this program is an effort of the West Java Provincial Government to reduce the existing gaps in society.
"These strategies are what will ensure that West Java advances together. The rich people are getting richer but the poor are taking it," said Emil.
"Because what is happening now is that there is a gap, upper middle class people have more prosperous access, the middle-lower class is confused, there is no access to no help, so he walks in the place," he continued.
Furthermore Emil explained five economic development strategies in West Java to support inclusive economic growth, namely infrastructure development to support economic growth, improve the quality of human resources, increase intercity cooperation / districts in West Java, revitalize villages (including the Satu Desa Satu program Products, One Village One Company) and development of new economic growth centers with the use of local resources.
"In the next five years, I imagine West Java to be an area that develops from selfie economic tourism, mothers whose abilities have increased through women's schools, and agriculture," he said.
Doesn't depend on APBD
On this occasion, Emil also said that to realize its program for the next five years, it could not only rely on APBD.
"As a leader I will look for funding sources, whatever it is. Because if you only rely on the APBD, according to mathematical calculations it will not arrive, right," said Emil.
Other funding, said Emil, could come through investment both from within and outside the country, or using CSR.
"Unless we have domestic and foreign investment. We have domestic and foreign grants, we maximize CSR at home and abroad," said Emil.
"Those are the ways we build West Java, ensuring when government funds are limited, a leader does not give up and continues to seek financing innovations," he said.
