President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo once again warned ministers and local government leaders on Tuesday not to excessively issue regulations.
“With global changes happening so rapidly, we need policies that allow us to make quick decisions, not issue more regulations,” Jokowi said in Jakarta during Bank Indonesia’s (BI) annual gathering.
Jokowi expressed his desire to have a government that can swiftly tackle challenges like startup companies, which have been able to experience accelerated growth despite a lack of clear regulations.
“There are a lot of what they would call companies without rules. I also want [a] government without many rules,” Jokowi said.
He went on to say that too many regulations would hinder the government’s response to the latest developments.
Jokowi, who is seeking reelection next year, reiterated his commitment to developing Indonesia’s human resources in a scale similar to the massive infrastructure development carried out during his administration while hoping that large-scale human development would give birth to reformists in all levels of the government.
“We hope that the training that we will provide in large-scale will give birth to reformists leaders in villages, subdistricts, cities and in the national [level],” he said. (bbn)
