“For example, if PUPR at that time said it would make the way, if it can be executed in 2022, we will be able to budget this at Rp. 178 trillion,” Sri Mulyani said in a working meeting with Commission XI DPR RI, Wednesday (19/1/2022) .

Sri Mulyani revealed stage I of development and transfer IKN which begins in 2022-2024 can indeed use more APBN funds to be the initial trigger. Moreover, the government needs to prepare basic infrastructure.

“So in this (cluster) strengthening of economic recovery, we have to be really pragmatic, which one can work,” he added.

“So at Rp 178 trillion, we will see the readiness of the K/L, the ability to execute it, and the most optimal economic impact, so we give priority to being able to use Rp 178 trillion,” he added.

The DPR refuses on the next page.
