Likewise, in the plantation sector, the Joko Widodo-Ma’ruf Amin pair emphasized the importance of downstreaming to export semi-finished goods.

“Going forward, both in agriculture-fisheries are downstreaming. We will build as many fisheries factories as possible to export semi-finished commodities,” he stated.

In relation to social welfare, the Joko Widodo-Ma’ruf Amin pair prepared three card programs to promote the social welfare of Indonesians.

“In terms of social welfare, we have the Indonesia Smart Card (KIP). We hope for all children, especially those from poor families, can have access to higher education with this card,” Jokowi said.

Joko Widodo committed to fight for independence of Indonesian economy

Jakarta (ANTARA) – Presidential candidate number 01 Joko Widodo (Jokowi) expressed his commitment to continue to fight for the independence of the Indonesian economy in an effort to increase people’s welfare.

“We want to fight for the independence of the Indonesian economy in an effort to increase people’s welfare. Therefore, under my leadership for the past 4.5 years, we take over strategic resources that were previously controlled by foreigners. For example, Rokan Block, Mahakam Block, and Freeport,” Joko Widodo said during the fifth round of the presidential debates in Jakarta on Saturday.

During his administration, incumbent President Joko Widodo and Vice President Jusuf Kalla have been fighting hard to restore the original character of Indonesian development, which was not just based on the economic growth but more on economic equality.

Without economic equality, Jokowi noted that there will be inequality among regions that cause injustice.

“We build infrastructures not only on Java Island but also on islands outside Java, in an attempt to build new economic centers outside Java through Special Economic Zones, Tourism Industries and other industries,” Joko Widodo remarked.

Regarding to social welfare, Joko Widodo will launch the Smart Indonesian Card to support children from families who cannot afford to study in universities or colleges.

“We also prepare the Pre-Employment Card. The card provides training for high school graduates, colleges and victims of termination of employment (PHK). We will also prepare a card to subsidize staple food. By this card, mothers can buy staple food that has been subsidized by the government,” he stated.
