Present at the inauguration of Deputy Chair of the Central Information Commission Gede Narayana Sunarkha. In his remarks he said the membership of the West Java Information Commission was the third or most period, followed by Central Java and DKI Jakarta.
"If it is already in the third phase, it must be better in facing IT development. KI must now be able to understand IT and monitor. Moreover, West Java has received the title as an informative province," he explained.
Openness becomes a necessity, especially as an informative province of transparency is an obligation for stakeholders. Today's society is increasingly literate and increasingly knows how to obtain information, one of which is through KI.
"The benefits of public information disclosure must be felt by the community. Public bodies must collaborate with KI so that the public can obtain transparent information," he said.
