BANDUNG - West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil said that the Human Development Index (HDI) in Indramayu District is still not optimal. To that end, his side together with the Indramayu Regency Government want to give more attention to the development of the HDI.
Emil, Ridwan Kamil's nickname, said that from 27 regencies / cities in West Java, Indramayu Regency received the largest financial assistance from the Regional Government of West Java Province.

"Hopefully our good intentions from the province to provide maximum assistance must be seen clearly in changes in infrastructure, changes in the education index, etc.," he continued.
Emil asserted, he wanted to focus on the development of HDI in Indramayu. The HDI development indicator can be seen from the progress of three fields, namely education, health, and people's purchasing power.
"The HDI is still not optimal. We are operating the HDI in the past five years. HDI is divided into three categories: education, health, purchasing power. If we are low in education, we will focus on financial assistance in education, "Emil said.

Another thing that must be a priority of development in Indramayu is the potential of the economy, tourism, and oil and gas (oil and gas). According to Emil, Indramayu has a wealth of oil and gas which must be directly proportional to people's welfare.
"In Indramayu's land there are a lot of oil and gas too, which of course must be seen between natural wealth and the welfare of its citizens," Emil said.
While in terms of tourism, Emil will help from the promotion side. This year the West Java Provincial Government has also budgeted around Rp 30 billion for revamping the Jatibarang Square.
"Then a lot of tourism has not been optimized, because of lack of promotion. We will help with promotion, there is Belentong Beach, Biawak Island, alun-alun, there is a river that passes through the grand mosque, Cimanuk, there are many, "he explained.
"I see as a governor who has a vision of infrastructure living in poles and promoting. "It should be that Indramayu can be shot not only as a city for itself but can receive guests who will provide economic competitiveness," Emil continued.
