INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta, Minister of Public Works and Public Housing (PUPR) Basuki Hadimuljono said the construction industry was one of the contributors to national economic growth, in addition to the consumption sector.

This is consistent with data from the Central Statistics Agency (BPS) that in the second quarter of 2018, Indonesia's economic growth reached 5.27%.

Minister Basuki said, as one of the Ministries with the largest budget, the absorption of the budget of the Ministry of PUPR as government spending also contributed.

"Therefore absorption is expected to be carried out evenly, not to accumulate at the end of the year so that it can continue to maintain economic growth above 5%, said Minister Basuki in the 2018 PUPR Ministry Limited Work Meeting (Rakertas) in Jakarta, Tuesday (7/8 / 2018)

Rakertas with the theme “Ready to Build the Country” was attended by around 550 people consisting of senior high-ranking officials, pratama, heads of halls and heads of Ministry of PUPR work units (satker) from all over Indonesia.

In Rakertas also presented sources from the Deputy Attorney General for Special Crimes (Jampidsus) Adi Togarisman and Director of Strategy Development and Public Procurement Policy of the Government Goods / Services Procurement Policy Agency (LKPP) Fadli Arif.

In addition to accelerating the realization of infrastructure spending, Minister Basuki also requested that all PUPR Ministries and Work Units in the regions pay attention to the quality of infrastructure built by strengthening supervision, as well as properly managing infrastructure assets already built.

PUPR Ministry Hall in the region is not only a construction manager who only focuses on building, but also infrastructure manager. The Head of the Office and staff must know the assets owned, the conditions, location and utilization of infrastructure assets within the scope of their responsibilities, "he said.

"In addition, the Hall is obliged to supervise all existing infrastructure works in the area, including those carried out by the Regional Government, if there are things that have not fulfilled the PU-technical rules, he explained.
