Uu said, the West Java Provincial Government also strengthened the commitment through Governor Regulation (Pergub) No. 60 of 2019 concerning the Implementation of Anti-Corruption Education in Education Units. A number of regencies / cities in West Java have also followed the issuance of Mayor Regulations and Regents Regulations.
"I hope that this regulation will be participated by 27 regencies / cities so that the cultivation of anti-corruption at the educational level will be more massive," said Uu.
Meanwhile, during the commemoration of the world anti-corruption day and the anniversary of the KPK in Jakarta some time ago, Uu said the West Java Provincial Government had a good ranking in handling and preventing corruption. Of the 34 provinces in Indonesia, West Java ranks fourth best.
"West Java is among the best ranking among other provinces in handling corruption. And the decline in corruption in West Java is almost 80 percent, so in Indonesia West Java ranks fourth," said Uu.
