The city administration won three of the Regional Development Awards (PPD) 2024 in the Best Province category from the National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas).

This is in accordance with President's direction

This award is given to regions that prepare quality plans and achieve regional development targets well.

President, Joko (Jokowi) Widodo, handed over the award trophy directly to the Acting Jakarta Governor, Heru Budi Hartono at the National Development Planning Conference (Musrenbangnas) 2024 at the Jakarta Convention Center (JCC), Senayan, Central Jakarta, Monday (5/6).

The city administration received an award for its efforts to increase investment and economic growth.

He stated this award is a form of the city administration's commitment to continuing to plan and conduct development to solve various city problems. Therefore, he appreciated all levels who have synergized together in designing strategies and policies to encourage Jakarta to become a resilient city that is globally competitive and achieves regional development targets that support national development.

"This is in accordance with President's direction today, who emphasized that synchronization is the key in realizing the central government's work plan which is also supported by regional governments. Thus, development initiated by the central and regional governments can be realized sustainably and the results can truly be felt by the people," he expressed, as quoted by the city administration's press release.

The city administration's development achievements throughout 2023 focus on several priorities, such as transportation, flood management, handling stunting, poverty, and increasing the democracy index. In the PPD 2024 assessment, the city proposed a program from the Jakarta Investment and One-Stop Integrated Services Agency (DPMPTSP) which innovated to present 'Gerai Memulai Usaha' (Outlet Starting a Business).

This innovation is useful for providing certainty to the business community regarding business licensing. Services include assistance and consultation provided to business actors, from application to permit issuance. Gerai Memulai Usaha is available at DPMPTSP offices at sub-district, sub-district, city and provincial levels, including public facilities such as MRT stations, markets, and malls in Jakarta.

National Development Planning (PPN) Minister/Bappenas Head, Suharso Monoarfa, said that the regional development award assessment consisted of two stages. The first stage is the assessment of planning documents and regional innovation documents. In the second stage, interviews and verification were done through discussion group forums and field visits.

"Hopefully, this award can give motivation and appreciation to local governments who have worked well in regional development," he hoped.
