Jakarta (ANTARA News) - President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) and state institution leaders held a meeting at the Merdeka Palace here on Tuesday to build the spirit of togetherness and optimism in all government programs.

"We want to build camaraderie and a sense of optimism in all the programs that have been done in the past and will be done by the government in future," the president remarked at a press conference after the meeting.

Jokowi revealed that the meeting was to discuss issues on economic equality policies related to the socio-economic gap and the inequalities existing in society that could be reduced by following up on the redistribution of assets and agrarian reform.
