Jakarta, dpd.go.id - Mental Reform echoed by the government is considered not too significant in the regions. This was stated in the Hearing (RDP) of Committee IV DPD RI with the Minister of National Development Planning (BPN) / Head of Bappenas, Bambang Brodjonegoro.

"Mental Reform Issues" echoed all the way to the sea, the sea highway also echoed out of the country so they wondered. But the fact is that until now the reality has not been too significant, "said Member of Committee IV DPD RI, Budiono at the DPD RI Building, Jakarta, Monday (11/01).

According to him, the region stil has not been touched with Mental Reformation. In fact, there are still a small number who might be able to reform the bureaucracy. "The current reality has not changed much from year to year," said Budiono.

Budiono assessed that the Indonesian Nation is actually oriented to forestry, livestock, agriculture and marine fisheries. The government should concentrate there, so that it can prosper the people.

"So I need skilled professionals who are also medical professionals, I think it is also less competitive. My input is how to allocate funds to train Indonesian workers more skillfully, more competitive, certified, professional so that they are sold everywhere, "said Budiono.
Meanwhile, Vice Chairman of Committee IV DPD RI from West Java Province Ayi Hambali explained the problem of the consequences of this plan, namely avoid the inconsistent implementation. "To maintain consistency, perhaps this is the Bappenas Law that we must propose so that Bappenas truly becomes the leader in development," he hoped.

At the same opportunity, PPN Minister / Head of Bappenas Bambang Brodjonegoro said the target for future economic growth would be difficult. Especially the achievement of 1968 - 1979 when the Indonesian economy grew 7.5 percent per year. "Now growing 5 percent is good and difficult to achieve," he said.

Bambang considered that Indonesia experienced structural problems that hindered the pace of economic growth. For example industrial productivity, especially manufacturing, and labor.

"The challenge of the manufacturing industry in the future is to increase added value in order to encourage competitiveness. This will encourage the ability of domestic products to compete with other countries' products in the export market. For that, in the future the government must continue structural reforms to revive the manufacturing sector, "Bambang said. *
