    TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo evaluated four aspects of Indonesia’s national strategic projects for the country’s COVID-19 economic recovery effort. 

    The first message he conveyed after conducting the virtual meeting earlier today was that the strategic agendas crucial to the nation will not be stopped and must continue. 

    “This morning, we will evaluate the national strategic project for the economic recovery due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” he said. 

    The second crucial aspect he said must continue was the prioritized implementation of the national strategic projects (PSN) that had a direct effect on the people’s economy and its recovery. 

    “I noted that several national strategic projects are very crucial to equalize and strengthen the people’s economy,” said Jokowi while ensuring that the programs would be executed under strict health protocols. 

    Those included in the PSN he considered crucial were the people’s land certification program, legalization of transmigration land, agrarian reform, social forestries, and the rejuvenation of people’s plantations. 

    Lastly, President Jokowi ordered officials to keep a close watch on the national strategic projects in the field and determine which were recommended and which were not.
