In addition to establishing various public facilities, he also succeeded in developing public transportation such as providing city buses, public transportation and making bus stops at various places within the city," he added.

Under his leadership, Jakarta has gradually grown into modern metropolitan city. Besides, he also actively played a role in developing Betawi culture by preserving various things related to Betawi.
