Vice Minister of Finance Advised IPDN Students: Synergy Between Central and Local Governments

Bukittinggi, 12/08/2019 Ministry of Finance - Vice Minister of Finance Mardiasmo explained that synergy, integration, collaboration and synchronization between the central government and local government are needed to overcome the challenges of accountability in the era of decentralization and regional autonomy.

"Therefore, I think that after graduating from IPDN (Institute of Public Administration), students can help in accelerating the pace of regional development throughout Indonesia, in all provinces, in all districts and cities will enlarge and accelerate the national development process," said Vice Minister of Finance in the National Seminar themed "Transparent and Accountable State/Regional Financial Management" at the Institute of Public Administration (IPDN) campus in Bukittinggi, West Sumatra on Friday (09/08).

In his presentation titled "Creating a Transparent and Accountable State Financial and Asset Management", the Vice Minister emphasized that accountability in asset management must still be considered. This is because the low asset awareness in the public sector causes inefficiency. Not only must it be recorded but also be utilized.

Therefore, strategic asset management which is a series of asset management processes from planning, procurement, operation, maintenance to elimination must be carried out carefully.

"Every stage in asset management must be carried out transparently and accountably and meet the principles of public accountability," said the Vice Minister.

Furthermore, the Vice Minister explained that to carry out financial and asset management that is credible and professional, the role of human resources (HR) plays an important role. Indonesia not only needs competent human resources but also requires human capital who loves Indonesia by upholding professionalism and integrity.

"Promoting integrity is a prerequisite for all public sector reforms and progress in achieving performance as well as evidence of willingness and commitment to good governance," concluded the Vice Minister.
