The Policy Discussion held by Article 33 Indonesia together with KEMENKO PMK on January 31 at the office of KEMENKO PMK related to the study of strengthening the role of Kecamatan in the border areas. This Policy Discussion was led by Mr. Wijanarko Setiawan as Assistant Deputy for Strategic and Special Empowerment of KEMENKO PMK and attended by several Ministries/Institutions (K/L) such as KEMENKO PMK, Ministry of Rural Development and Transmigration, BAPPENAS, Ministry of Home Affairs, Cabinet Secretariat, and BNPP.
Policy discussions are conducted to accommodate input and advice from each government stakeholder on the General Guidelines that will be made by the study team with the aim of increasing the role of the Camat and Kecamatan. Some important revenues and inputs that can be underlined are: (1) BNPP states that if the role of the Camat is not large, it will have an impact on massive budget corruption at the Village level, on the other hand, the budget also cannot go down properly if there is no coordination between the Camat and the District;(2) Up to now there is still overlap between the policies of UNDANG-UNDANG 23 and UNDANG-UNDANG 43 which discusses who is responsible for developing border areas, and this General Guidelines are expected to help divide the role of the problem.
