Meanwhile, when met after the plenary meeting, Emil stated, a surge in the budget absorption of the 2019 Fiscal Year Budget will occur from this month to December. Moreover, it has carried out grounbreaking for various infrastructure projects.
"I have started a lot of groundbreaking, because the auction process has just been settled. So, usually a surge in absorption occurs in these months to December," Emil said.
Then related to Silpa, Emil admitted that he did not want a lot of the remaining budget in each budget. Because according to him money from the people must be maximized to improve people's welfare.
"In the concept of development there is such a thing as Silpa. The remaining budget is usually because, for example, it has contracted 100, but there is a bargain that means 80 remaining 20," he said.
"Well, that is what ultimately many remnants that we formulated here we have to spend a maximum. Because I myself do not like a lot of leftovers, public money must be maximized," he concluded.
