BANDUNG CITY- Governor Ridwan Kamil together with Deputy Governor Uu Ruzhanul exchanged relations with the leaders of the media, at the 18th Floor Trans Luxury Hotel Bandung, Friday (6/12/19) evening.
The West Java Provincial Government Head and the media leadership are discussing about the progress of development during 2019, as well as the 2020 development plan. The governor hopes that with a pure budget design, development in 2020 can be maximized.
"In 2020, because of the pure pride design from Pak Uu and I, we hope that the programs can run optimally," said the Governor who is familiarly called Emil.
"The first year of adaptation, the second year of acceleration, the third year we harvest the results. The point is that for 2020, we will maintain good things in 2019, which we will not introspection be willing to introspect," he added.
As for throughout 2019, the Governor felt grateful that the majority of the West Java Champion programs had made changes.
"Then the villages are more stretched now, there are digital villages, the village economy is improved by OVOP and others," he added.
Likewise, several infrastructure projects have been running, but most of them have not yet been completed. Because there are still shortcomings.
While the affairs of the North Bandung Region (KBU), in 2020 will be emphasized by a regulation involving the Citarum Harum Task Force and the Bandung Basin Authority Agency. While the consistent tree planting movement is expected to be a short, medium, and long term solution.
Even in 2019, there is one thing that makes the Governor happy, namely that at the end of this year the Provincial Government can set aside the APBD. Until the first time, the West Java Provincial Government through the West Java Education Office can make SPP free, for high school / vocational / state students. "There is also private sector, but for students who can not afford," he said.
Still in 2019, more than 80 awards from domestic and foreign won until the end of this year. The proudest achievement for Emil is the 2019 GovInsider Innovation Awards at the United Nations (UN) Asia Pacific headquarters in Bangkok, Thailand, last Wednesday (10/16/19).
At that time, West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil won an award as an Inspirational Leader in the Asia Pacific region. Then the West Java Provincial Government through the Office of Communication and Information also won two awards, namely Best Adaptation for the Digital Village Program and Best Team Under 35 for the Jabar Digital Service unit.
"West Java, some of its programs are no longer champions at the national level, but have reached the Asia Pacific level," he said.
In the meeting, the Governor invited 70 leaders of print, online, television, local, regional and national radio, including journalist organizations. This meeting is a routine activity to maintain communication and good relations with the media. This is the last meeting in 2019.
