SUKABUMI REGENCY- West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil stated, the West Java Provincial Government (Pemdaprov) is currently not only focused on outward development such as infrastructure, but also inner development. This was realized in the vision of West Java Champion Born Inner.
"West Java Provincial Government now not only builds outward dimensions, but also builds an inner dimension," said Emil - greeting Ridwan Kamil - when giving a public lecture at Pondok Modern Assalam Putri, Sukabumi Regency, Saturday (8/31/19).
Emil also explained a number of inner development programs, such as Koran Recitation, Morning Congregation, Digital Alms, Digital Da'wah, One Village One Hafiz, and MTQ Champion. In addition, he also mentioned several Champion Pesantren programs, such as One Pesantren One Product (OPOP).
The OPOP program itself has been running at Pondok Modern Assalam Putri by producing soap, lotions and other skin care products. Therefore, Emil appreciated what the pesantren had done.
"If it is developed professionally, it will be an extraordinary pilot of the pesantren economy," he said.
According to Emil, pesantren must have economic independence. If this is realized, the people's economy will improve. "Usually there are products, but it is difficult to sell. Or else, from that side we (West Java Provincial Government) are ready to help," said Emil.
On the same occasion, Emil inaugurated the Jami Pondok Modern Assalam Putri Mosque inside the boarding school.
