OK OCE budget set at Rp 82 billion
The Jakarta Post
The Jakarta administration has set Rp 82 billion (US$6 million) aside in its 2018 city budget plan for an entrepreneurship training program called One District One Center of Entrepreneurship or OK OCE.
OK OCE is a flagship program by Deputy Governor Sandiaga Uno. It is designed to create 200,000 new entrepreneurs.
Jakarta Cooperatives, Small and Medium Enterprises Agency head Irwandi said on Wednesday the allocation was not explicitly under the name of the OK OCE. He added that the agency had put the budget under the entrepreneurship empowerment and assistance program.
"The budget for OK OCE, which is still undergoing deliberation, is at Rp 82 billion. The budget will be used for training and giving assistance to entrepreneurs, as well as for co-working spaces,” said Irwandi, as quoted by kompas.com on Wednesday.
He added that the administration planned to open co-working spaces in five municipalities and the Thousand Islands regency. However, these spaces would only be located in the administration’s buildings.
Regarding the entrepreneurship empowerment program, the agency had recruited trainers who would work in the municipalities’ districts, as well as in the regency.
"Their salary will be in accordance with the provincial minimum salary," he said. (agn)
