BANDUNG - Various programs continue to be rolled out by the West Java Provincial Government which aims to improve the welfare of all people in West Java so that equality occurs according to the vision and mission of the leadership of the Governor of West Java, Mochamad Ridwan Kamil and Deputy Governor of West Java, Uu Ruzhanul Ulum.
The Governor of West Java, Mochamad Ridwan Kamil said, the problem of inequality on the economic side in the West Java region is still clearly visible due to the uneven distribution of the sector.
"The problem in West Java, of all if I choose one that is a priority, is inequality," said the Governor, in the Inauguration of BNI Syariah Regional Office and Bandung Branch, Tuesday (11/14).
According to the Governor, the North West Java region with the South West Java region is too large, where in the South West region there are still many people with a relatively low economic level, including poor poor inequality.
"Those who are rich because they are sophisticated, can translate into opportunities, there is no knowledge in the village, there is no one who gives a chance, no one gives technology so that it runs in place," he said.
As a result of these conditions, according to the Governor, many residents in the villages flocked to big cities to find work according to what they hoped would improve their welfare.
"To reduce the rate of urbanization, the village must be independent. If possible, there may be villagers who migrate to the city, how do they do it? He must have a job," he said.
The governor stated that if there were no jobs in the village, the West Java Provincial Government as a country would attend through various programs, one of them being one village one company program, so that people did not need to go to big cities just to find work.
"There are 5 thousand of our villages that are eager to make 5 thousands of companies, what is for sale? Certainly the potential that exists in the village, such as tourism, agriculture or food products," he explained. (Parno)
