Jokowi: Ministry has Duty to Publish Govt`s Project

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - President Joko `Jokowi` Widodo said the public announcement showing the government`s achievement at cinemas was part of the Communication and Informatics Ministry`s job.

According to Jokowi, the ministry’s job was done since the New Order Era. “Years ago, it was the Information Ministry that informed [the public],” said the President on Friday, September 14, after opening the 36th Congress of Indonesian Christian Students Movement at Green Forest Hotel, Bogor.
