Bappenas Holds Governors’ Coordination Meeting to Synchronize RPJPN and RPJPD Transformation Efforts

JAKARTA – The Ministry of National Development Planning/Bappenas held a Governors’ Coordination Meeting (Rakorgub) in order to synchronize the terms of the 2025-2045 National Long-Term Development Plan (RPJPN) and the 2025-2045 Regional Long-Term Development Plan (RPJPD), as well as to strengthen the foundation for transformation outlined in the 2025-2029 National Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJMN) and the 2025 Government Working Plan (RKP). 

The meeting discussed the progress and challenges of regional development, as well as strategic solutions for development within the corridor of resolving fundamental issues such as poverty, stunting, and basic services and infrastructure.

The Minister of National Development Planning/Head of Bappenas, Suharso Monoarfa, stated that over the past few years, the Ministry of National Development Planning/Bappenas has held meetings with governors, with most regional heads’ main requests being increased infrastructure development. 

"For the last two years, the two things that we have noted in the journey to improve basic services was the need to improve the provision of clean water and improving roads. One of the RPJMN’s targets is to ensure 75% of provincial roads being built by 2024, while the districts/cities target being at 65 percent. Right now, we are still far from those targets," Minister Suharso explained.

In order to achieve the Golden Indonesia 2045 Vision, the government has formulated 20 Super Priority Transformative Efforts (UTSP) which will serve as the main pillars in the country's transformation efforts towards prosperity and sustainable progress. Supported by the synchronization of RPJPN and RPJPD, strategic steps in the form of strengthening the foundation of transformation have been planned to address fundamental development issues through social transformation, economic transformation, and governance transformation efforts.

Social Transformation is the main focus in the initial stage towards the Golden Indonesia Vision 2045, with an emphasis on improving basic services in health, education, and social protection. Concrete steps planned include accelerating 13 years of compulsory education, resolving stunting, and investing in primary health care services. Economic transformation focuses on increasing research and technology budgets towards the commercialization of industries, leading industrialization based on superior natural resources, industrial downstreaming, fair energy transition, and accelerating digital transformation. Governance transformation focuses on strengthening legal supremacy, stability, and leadership as a solid foundation for national progress. Adding to that, reforms to the prosecution system, fiscal planning, and socio-cultural resilience are integral towards achieving the Golden Indonesia 2045 Vision.

The meeting was attended by various heads of regional governments, including the Secretary of Maluku, Sadali Ie, Acting Governor of Papua Pegunungan, Velix Vernando Wanggai, Acting Governor of West Sulawesi, Zudan Arif Fakrulloh, Acting Governor of Bangka Belitung, Safrizal Zakaria Ali, Acting Governor of West Kalimantan, Harrison Azroi, and Acting Governor of East Nusa Tenggara, Ayodhia Kalake. 

"This might be the last Rakorgub meeting in Jakarta. We hope that the next Rakorgub will be held at the [new capital city] Nusantara. There is already a hotel built there. So, next year we may have the meeting in that hotel," Minister Suharso concluded.
