Tom, familiar greeting Thomas, said the realization of socialization is likely to begin next year. There is also currently it will do the planning, including on the budget because it coincides with the preparation of the budget next year.

"Now is the time to look at what we have to budget for EODB improvements next year including the IT system budget in the Supreme Court and the judicial system, and I urge that IT budgets are always being pushed because so much can be achieved through digital and online technology," he said.

In the annual report "Doing Business 2018" released by the World Bank, Indonesia's effortless ranking in 2018 overall rose 19 ranks to 72 positions from 190 countries surveyed.
