Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan proposed to the City Council on Monday changing the organizational structure of several working units in the capital.

“The arrangement is intended to make the 42 working units more appropriate in terms of function, size and cooperation [….],” he said during his speech in a plenary meeting on Monday.

One of the agenda items of the meeting was the governor’s presentation, which proposed changes to a regulation on working units.

The proposed organizational changes consist of breaking up the tourism and culture agency and forming the Jakarta Tourism Agency and Jakarta Tourism and Creative Economy Agency.

Meanwhile, the Jakarta Industry and Energy Agency would become the newly-proposed Jakarta Environment and Energy Agency, while the Jakarta Industrial, Trade, Cooperative and SMEs Agency would be formed.

The Jakarta Forestry Agency would change its nomenclature to the Jakarta Parks and Urban Forest Agency.

The Jakarta Tax and Levy Board would become the regional income agency.

City Council deputy speaker Triwisaksana, who led the plenary meeting, concluded the meeting by saying that the council would hold a follow-up meeting on Wednesday to respond to the proposed matters.
