It is City 4.0 approach where in the future, city government is not only functioned as service provider and resident is not only as a customer
Anies said, this moment is also a chance for Jakarta to share about Jakarta Government initiatives related to social integration and inclusion to the world, such as implementing Community Action Plan (CAP) Program in 16 villages in the Capital.
"Residents are actively involved in this program and they are given the authority to make decision regarding management and arrangement in their villages," he conveyed as it is written in his official Facebook account, Tuesday (10/30).
His side is committed to make various places in Jakarta, including main roads, as the 'third place' for residents to interact, gather, and greet each others, while enjoying arts, cultures, and sports.
He mentioned, city government should be a facilitator and collaborator while each resident has a role as participant and co-creator in various city management aspects.
"It is City 4.0 approach where in the future, city government is not only functioned as service provider and resident is not only as a customer," he added.
