JAKARTA (JP): There is a visible lack of coordination between the central government and local administrations in the development of the real sector and micro, small and medium businesses, Coordinating Minister for the Economy Boediono said Thursday.
The government, through last year's policy package under Presidential Decree No. 6/2007, plans to accelerate growth in the real sector and strengthen small and medium enterprises, which is expected to boost the country's economy.
However, while most of the programs and measures in the policy package have been wrapped up according to the government's target, the implementation has not gone as planned.
"We acknowledge that there is an information gap between the national and local levels. For instance, when the central government finishes formulating a measure, local administrations still do not know the details," Boediono said Thursday.
"We will soon address the issue. In this case, we will send a copy of each new measure to local administrations to solve the problem," he said. (adt)
