Hence, Gerindra asked the city to be more concerned about this matter," he expressed, during the plenary meeting about submission of fractions' opinion on the draft bylaw on 2017-2022 RPJMD, Monday (4/2).
On the other side, PKS fraction also expressed their opinion through Achmad Yani whereby the city was reminded to finalize the target of budget absorption in period 2017-2022 by 96.31 percent.
They uttered that it needs to be reminded, as the target is never more than 90 percent. "There should be a mature strategy, including the development of an early warning system in case of obstacles," he stated.
Meanwhile, William Yani from PDI Perjuangan, appreciated the assumption of economic growth that reached 7 percent in accordance with the target of 2017-2022 RPJMD.
