JAKARTA, KOMPAS TV – Defense Minister Prabowo Subianto had the opportunity to give a speech at the Open Senate Meeting of the 57th Anniversary of the Faculty of Forestry UGM virtually, on Friday (23/10/2020).
He then highlighted the number of agricultural lands that had been converted into real estate.
According to Prabowo, the number of population growth is increasing day by day. Meanwhile, agricultural land continues to shrink due to the massive conversion of land functions.
“So much land for farming has turned into real estate. The question is can we eat cement? Can we eat concrete?” Prabowo said as quoted from the UGM Forestry Youtube channel on Saturday (24/10/2020).
“Why would apartment towers and real estate be so great when the people couldn’t eat.”
