President Joko Widodo together with Minister of PUPR Basuki Hadimuljono check the work of Bocimi Toll - Purwokerto - Infrastructure development carried out by the government in various regions can foster new economic centers, said the Chancellor of the University of Jenderal Sudirman (Unsoed) Purwokerto Professor Suwarto.

"I think in terms of equitable development, I observe that it is quite good because in some areas outside Java, development seems to have developed rapidly and I think road infrastructure and so on will excite the economy in these areas," he said in Purwokerto, Banyumas Regency, Java Middle, Thursday (16/8 / 2018_

Thus, he said, there is no economic development if the infrastructure is limited and becomes an obstacle.

Therefore, according to him, the acceleration of infrastructure development by the government is a good step to stimulate economic activity somewhere.

"Only what needs to be considered is that it must be replaced, in the sense of not just infrastructure, but the development of human resources (HR) in that place must also be balanced. Do not let the infrastructure be good but the human resources have no touch," said the man who is familiarly called Prof. . Warto.

In this case, he pointed out that HR development can be related to how to improve the capacity of local communities to develop the economy, innovate, and maintain and maintain infrastructure.

According to him, these abilities must be controlled by the people in the area so that they have a sense of ownership and are able to develop the economy.

"We are grateful to be able to help develop the infrastructure there," said the agriculture expert.

To Antara, he admitted that if the infrastructure development carried out by the government had now opened up remote areas.

According to him, this condition is different from the previous government which prioritized infrastructure development in certain areas.

"But with this equality (infrastructure development, ed.), I think it's good because everywhere the economy will develop," he said.

He pointed out that the development of rural areas in Java, which is currently growing rapidly with improvements in agricultural infrastructure such as irrigation and farming roads, will accelerate the movement of commodities in an area so that they are more efficient and economical.

In fact, he said, infrastructure development also supports the development of civilization and culture so that there are no more isolated areas.

"Thus, residents in remote areas can feel infrastructure development. They can feel that Indonesia has 73 years of independence, its development has begun to be evenly distributed," he said.
