President Joko '€œJokowi'€ Widodo has instructed his newly appointed ministers to strictly follow his guidelines and get familiar with the cross-organizational work style he will apply for the next five years.

Speaking in his first Cabinet meeting on Monday afternoon, Jokowi underlined that his ministers'€™ duty was to '€œimplement the president'€™s vision, missions and main programs.'€

'€œMinisterial visions and missions no longer exist we have to work and [follow] a straight line based on my direction,'€ Jokowi said.

Jokowi also reminded his 34 ministers to put aside their '€œsectoral egos'€ as they would be asked to intensively coordinate with other ministers to settle certain problems.

'€œWe can do nothing alone. The synergy will not always involve those working under the same coordinating ministry but also among coordinating ministries,'€ he said. (nfo)(+++)
