In addition, he said the need to synchronize poverty alleviation programs in both urban and rural areas.

"Nowadays, poverty alleviation programs are still sporadic, and each ministry has its own program, there needs to be harmonization of the program so that the allocation of resources is more targeted and more impactful," Firmanzah said.

Fiz, call Firmanzah, also hopes in the remaining two years the Jokowi-JK Government can expand the private involvement in the region in the infrastructure development program.

"Private sector in the region should not only be a spectator of infrastructure development in the region, and private involvement in this area will also create new jobs which will eventually increase purchasing power," he said.
