BANDUNG CITY- Acting West Java Governor Uu Ruzhanul Ulum asked the West Java Indonesian Association of Communications (ISKI) to take part in communication between the West Java Provincial Government and the community.
"Our hope is that ISKI Jabar as a communication person is able to build communication and become an intermediary for communication between the government and the community," Uu said while attending the inauguration of the management of ISKI Jabar for the 2019-2022 period at Prime Park Hotel, Bandung City, Monday (10/14/19).
According to Uu, ISKI administrators with academic, practitioner, journalist and public relations backgrounds, can deliver programs and policies of the West Java Provincial Government effectively and efficiently, both directly and via mass media and social media.
"What is conveyed by the government wants to be helped in order to reach the community and not to arrive at a piece, but it must be perfect. Because if the information submitted is not complete, I am afraid that it will be slander," he said.
Uu also said, the West Java Provincial Government currently has a number of programs aimed at improving the welfare of the community, both outward and inward. Therefore, he invited ISKI West Java to collaborate to socialize the West Java Provincial Government program.
"Our mission Jabar champions physically and spiritually with innovation and collaboration, we invite all people in the scope of pentahelix ABCGM (academics, business, government, community, media) to build West Java, ISKI West Java is one of them," he said.
"Our leadership is not top down anymore, but it is bottom up, so what the community wants until we are then formulated. Then, then we decide. Then, ISKI West Java can be a facilitator between the community and the government," he added.
The Chairperson of the ISKI 2019-2022 period Atie Rachmiatie said that she was ready to collaborate with the West Java Provincial Government. According to him, members of ISKI West Java are spread in 27 regencies / cities.
"West Java ISKI membership is spread in various professions such as academics, lecturers, researchers, public relations, journalists and communication entrepreneurs. They are now spread across 27 regencies / cities in West Java," he said.
