INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Presidential Spokesman Johan Budi said President Jokowi asked for a review of various regulations that allow state-owned companies to level up the domestic component (TKDN).

"The President asked to immediately examine whether there are rules that can bridge that domestic industrial products should be used in the construction of both PLN, then other SOEs," said Johan Budi at the Presidential Palace Complex Jakarta, Tuesday (1/8 / 2017)

Johan states that the President has repeatedly received reports that there are many domestic industries that are qualified to produce goods that can be used by advanced industries, whether in small or large scope.

"In this limited meeting, Coordinating Minister for Home Affairs, Luhut B Panjaitan reported on the current state and state of the domestic industry that it has been able to produce high-tech goods such as boilers, boats," Johan said.

President Jokowi, continued Johan, said that it needs to be appreciated.

"If not, when we will step forward?," he said.

President Jokowi previously reminded all parties to implement the domestic component level policy (TKDN) consistently not only as an administrative technical policy in the procurement of goods and services.

"Please be underlined, I see it is still just an administrative technical policy as a complement to the terms of procurement of goods and services," Jokowi said when he chaired a Limited Cabinet Meeting at the Presidential Complex Presidential Palace Office here on Tuesday.

He sees such conditions in both ministries and agencies and SOEs.

The President requested that the TKDN policy is not merely an administrative technical policy as a complement to the requirements for procurement of goods and services.
