    As for the city’s 2020 budget spending, it is set at Rp79.61 trillion or increased by 2.26 percent compared to the 2019 budget at Rp77.85 trillion.

    Additionally, Jakarta is determined to optimize the tax revenue by implementing an online system and regional retributions. Anies said the measure is necessary considering the profit-sharing funds of last year worth Rp21.67 trillion had not yet been disbursed by the central government.
