“The technical matters will be discussed with the Finance Ministry, but will be pushed [to complete] in the first quarter, in line with the Susenas (National Social and Economic Survey) in April,” he added.

The third program is the expansion of the government-borne value-added tax incentive or VAT DTP until June 2022, from initially ended in December 2021. The fourth program is the luxury goods sales tax (PPnBM) for automotive.

Airlangga Hartarto also said the proposal for people's vehicles submitted by Industry Minister Agus Gumiwang Kartasasmita to Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati is needed to be discussed and studied further. “This has not been approved yet,” he said.
