Jakarta (ANTARA) - President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) instructed Agus Harimurti Yudhoyono (AHY), as the newly appointed minister of agrarian affairs and spatial planning, to achieve three targets.

"I tasked Mr. Minister AHY with executing three matters, with one of them being related to issuing electronic land certificates on an even more massive scale," Jokowi remarked after the inauguration ceremony of several state officials at the State Palace, Jakarta, on Wednesday.

The government started issuing digital certificates of land in December last year as an effort to provide convenience to people seeking to print out the physical form of their land certificates.

At the State Palace, Jokowi said he also expected AHY to immediately reach a conclusion to the issuance of a regulation concerning the land utilization rights (HGU) related to carbon trading activities.

"Secondly, I instructed the minister to accelerate the formulation of a regulation that will govern carbon trading HGU, as plenty of parties have conveyed their keenness to participate (in carbon trading activities in Indonesia)," he pointed out.

Furthermore, the head of state spoke of having urged Minister AHY to pursue the target of registering 120 million parcels of land under the Complete Systematic Land Registration (PTSL) Program.

AHY, the first son of Indonesian 6th President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, was appointed as agrarian affairs and spatial planning minister to succeed Hadi Tjahjanto, who was inaugurated as coordinating minister for political, legal, and security affairs on the same occasion.

President Jokowi installed the two ministers in accordance with Presidential Decree No.34 P of 2024 regarding discharge and appointment of ministers of the Onward Indonesia Cabinet for the 2019-2024 Period, issued on February 20, 2024.
