INDUSTRY.co.id - The Development Finance Comptroller (BPKP) must ensure that the Government development goals are achieved in an accountable, effective and efficient manner, President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo has stated.

“Observing procedures is important; yet, what’s more important thing is ensuring (the Government) to achieve the targets that have been set. Once again, those targets must be achieved in an accountable, effective and efficient manner,” the President said in his remarks at the 2021 National Coordination Meeting of the Government Internal Comptroller, at the Bogor Presidential Palace, Thursday (27/05).

According to the President, the outcomes of the programs run by the Government and every penny spent by the Government must benefit the people.

To that end, he added, oversight measures must be able to prevent fraud related to the Government budget use.

The Head of State also reiterated that he has zero tolerance for budget fraud, especially amid COVID-19 pandemic when the Government has been making every effort to combat the pandemic.

This year, he pointed out, is a momentum to boost national economic recovery and the Government has set aside a budget of Rp700 trillion that must be disbursed immediately to propel economic growth and kick-start national economy.

“In the first quarter, our economy contracted by minus 0.74. We are aiming to achieve a 7-percent growth in the second quarter. It is no easy task. Hence, the programs must be well managed,” the President said.
