Tabanan, Bali (ANTARA News) - President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) has expressed hope that the cash labor-intensive program involving the local people would be able to boost the circulation of money and the people`s purchasing power in rural areas.

"We really hope the program would be able to boost the circulation of money and purchasing power in rural areas," the president remarked while reviewing the cash labor-intensive program for the construction of roads and small irrigation project at the Kukuh Village in Tabanan District, Bali Province, on Friday.

Jokowi noted that such a project is expected to increase the people`s purchasing and consumption power in future.

The projects that have, so far, been implemented in rural areas are those of the Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing.

The president expressed hope that more such projects would be worked out based on the cash labor-intensive pattern.

If all devices and instruments have been prepared up to the lowest level, then the absorption of funds in villages for such projects can be optimized, the president added.
