S. Jakarta holds development expo

South Jakarta mayoralty is holding a five-day development exhibition, featuring achievements in development programs throughout the mayoralty.

The exhibition was opened by Maskup Ustianto, an assistant to the city secretary. There are seventy stands representing district offices, governmental institutions and private companies in South Jakarta.

In a written statement read at the opening of the exhibition, Governor Surjadi Soedirdja urged Jakartans, especially residents of the mayoralty, to become active in the city's development program.

"Such involvement is badly needed to enable the city to anticipate the continuing increases in the population," the governor was quoted by the Antara news agency as saying.

In a related development, South Jakarta mayor H. Pardjoko said that his mayoralty is giving priority to the improvement of water services and the preservation of water catchment areas with the aim of maintaining an adequate supply of water. (hhr)
