Jakarta (ANTARA) - National Development Planning Minister Suharso Monoarfa has emphasized the importance of achieving the targets outlined in the 2024 Government Work Plan (RKP).

"The completion of the targets will also be influenced by the development realization at the regional level as well as collaboration with non-state actors," he informed here on Tuesday.

He made the remarks at the 2023 National Development Planning Forum (Musrenbangnas) on preparing the 2024 RKP as well as the launch of the 2025–2045 National Long-Term Development Plan (RPJPN) Initial Draft and the 2020–2050 Population Projection.

The documents were developed using the clearing house mechanism – holding a forum to resolve problems by involving related stakeholders -- to ensure the development plans can fully benefit the community, the minister stated.

The preparation of the 2024 RKP involved several stakeholders through public consultation forums, development planning technical coordination meetings, as well as provincial development planning forums.

"After the implementation of the Musrenbangnas, preliminary discussions will be held with the DPR RI (Indonesian House of Representatives),” the minister informed.

He further said that a presidential regulation concerning the 2024 RKP will be issued later, and it will serve as the basis for preparing the 2024 financial notes and the state budget plan (RAPBN).

The 2024 RKP is themed “Accelerating Inclusive and Sustainable Economic Transformation.”

Several development targets have been set in the initial draft of the 2024 RKP, including economic growth of 5.3–5.7 percent, poverty rate of 6.5–7.5 percent, open unemployment rate of 5.0–5.7 percent, as well as a Gini ratio of 0.374–0.377 points.

In addition, other determined targets include a Human Development Index of 73.99–74.02 points, a greenhouse gas emission reduction of 27.27 percent, a fishermen's exchange rate of 107–110 points, as well a farmers' exchange rate of 105–108 points.

Those targets continue to be pursued through eight policy directions, including reducing the poverty rate and eradicating extreme poverty, improving education and health service quality, revitalizing industry and strengthening applied research, as well as bolstering business competitiveness.

The directions also include low-carbon development and energy transition, accelerating basic infrastructure and connectivity development, expediting the development of Indonesia’s future capital Nusantara (IKN), as well as holding the 2024 general elections.
