He furthered that related regional working unit (SKPD) must also be more assertive to industry actors in Jakarta to monitor industrial smoke exhaust and install air quality control in industrial chimneys.
"If it is needed, we will involve the community in its monitoring, including Early Awareness Society Forum (FKDM) personnel," he told.
Similar opinion with Rico, Executive Director, Mohammad Syaiful Jihad, Jakarta Public Service (JPS) added that socialization becomes an important instrument, not only related to the seven points in the instruction but the benefits that can be felt by the community.

With this instruction, it needs participatory collaborative concepts to realize greening the environment and the use of eco-friendly renewable energy sources.
"I believe it needs to be started soon and conducted good monitoring to get optimum results," he said.
