IO – Quick-hurry up to the venue. And fast-hurry back to work.
Although have today off – Independence Day of the Republic of Indonesia. What I do not forget: it is the 74th.
Almost all our economic indicators are not good anymore. Initially, the election was expected to end the uncertainty. Moreover, radical reconciliation has occurred.
The balance of trade, exchange rates, the value of foreign investment, there are encouraging. Only – alhamdulillah controlled inflation.
It’s been so much input from experts. Starting from the ‘crazy’ to the mediocre. For economic growth does not stop at 5 percent. Even threatened to go down again to 4.5 percent.
If I’m realistic. Expansion is not possible. Except by increasing debt. And we do not want to.
Request for an expansive state-owned enterprises has also been difficult. SOE debt already very alarming. It has been difficult. With the revaluation of assets weapon even – To add new debt debt space.
In the case of PLN, revaluation of assets became a disaster: PLN liquidity became very tight. Until should consider tightening cash flow, who switches the lights off.
Economists like Ramli also mentioned the revaluation of state-owned assets as a weapon. I also agree. With conditions: tax arising from the revaluation should be postponed. Yet it is equally part of the state: left pocket right pocket.
The Finance Minister certainly do not agree. It’s her job to disagree.
But over the Finance Ministry there is still the President. Who could decide anything.Including state tax deferment.
Do not be like PLN. Revalue taxes paid. About 15 trillion. Medium revaluation that does not generate revenue. Only generates debt. Which must also be paid, with interest. PLN cash was drained.
If anyone in the country I would invite friends over the entrepreneur. Especially those engaged in export. Let us try to discuss it with ease. Export anything that we can. We make friends. Throughout-length.
We rearrange the list. Be transposed. Tailored to the scale of priorities.
Businessmen know all that. Not a bureaucrat.
Task bureaucrats to adjust the rules. In order for export targets to b met.
Full week the discussion was conducted. Day and night. It must be born of the long list.
From there the export figures could be compiled. Can know how much reach. If not, be discussed again. Until you find the ideal figure. It’s the country’s economic progress.
If necessary, export into ‘war Baratayudha’ these days. That the ceremony August 17th next year could be more festive. Remember, the Independence Day next year is the 75th. Figures mystery.
Otherwise, next year we celebrate it in a state of recession.
