The Indonesian government will simplify the national logistical system in order to be more efficient. It is done by forming a national logistical ecosystem (National Logistical Ecosystem / NLE) system. Coordinating Minister for the Economy Airlangga Hartarto, after attending the Limited Cabinet Meeting via Video Conference on Wednesday stated that the government will form an NLE four months ahead. Minister Airlangga further said that President Jokowi asked that NLE can be made not only based on the application and ecosystem of the system itself, which integrates among ministries and institutions, but it is also to simplify the process and eliminate repetitive processes and reduce logistics costs. He also explained that it also needs the integration of related ministries or institutions, so that there is a harmonization of the system to reduce obstacles in services.
"Roadmap of the NLE itself will be done for the next 4 months and the President has said that there will be assignments for the Customs ( Beacukai ) to carry NLE and have presidential instruction ( inpres). Of course in the Inpres there will be a director from the relevant ministries then there will be a daily executive handled by Minister of Finance and Customs. Besides the President also gave direction for the implementation of this National Logistics, the major thing is in the field implementation and the President also gave direction to involve the Corruption Eradication Commission ( KPK ) for supervision, so that this system can run effectively and efficiently" minister said.
Meanwhile, Minister of Finance Sri Mulyani Indrawati explained that in term of improving the logistics system, the government will build two platforms, namely at the system development level and at the implementation level. The government will make a national logistical ecosystem (National Logistical Ecosystem / NLE) which will also integrate logistics movement in Indonesia at the level of system development. Ndy / AF
