President to give direct briefing tax, customs officers Wednesday
In a frame to reach targeted state revenues, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono will provide direction for officers at the Directorate of Taxation and Directorate of Customs and Excise on Wednesday.
â€ś[On Wednesday], the President will have a meeting with top officials within the tax as well as customs and excise offices,â€ť Finance Minister Agus Martowardojo said Tuesday.
The Presidentâ€™s directive aimed at informing the officers on policy and management of the two offices, which are the most strategic directorates for state earnings, he added.
Agus said last Friday that the tax office needed to be fully reformed following a high-ranked graft case involving its former officer Gayus H. Tambunan.
