The Jakarta administration has received an award from the Central Information Commission (KIP) for its transparency in disseminating information to the public, together with Central Java, West Java and West Kalimantan.

The award was received by Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan at the Vice President’s office in Central Jakarta on Monday.

Anies said the award was proof that information regarding the city's programs, from the planning stage to implementation, could be accessed by the public.

Anies added that good information was vital for the supervision of public institutions and the government. The provision of public information should be utilized to create collaborative programs between the administration, the public and other stakeholders, he said.

"Change should start within the body of the government, from the dissemination of information to collaboration. We want to push that," Anies said at City Hall on Monday.

After receiving the award, Anies, Central Java Governor Ganjar Pranowo and West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil had coffee together at a coffee shop at City Hall.

The three governors expressed their happiness at receiving the information transparency awards.

"If we can be transparent and accountable, we can prevent corruption. We can give the public access to information so we can educate them all," Ganjar said. (iwa)
