President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo recently said that in the second, third, and fourth quarters, the government must be able to hold back the rate of economic growth so that it does not plummet deeper.
He instructed all economic recovery program schemes that have been designed such as interest subsidies for MSMEs, fund allocation for banks affected by restructuring, guarantees for working capital loans, State Capital Inclusion (PMN) for SOEs, and government investment for working capital, to be quickly executed.
