Greatindonesia.co.id, Jakarta – The economic recovery in disaster-hit Palu and Donggala, Central Sulawesi needs special attention and sustainable support from all parties, entrepreneur Indra Uno emphasized. Reviving and stabilizing the citizens’ purchasing power through constant support and accompaniment is key to restarting the region’s economy, Uno added.

“There are more than 300 thousand people living in palu, and after the natural disaster, they were also hit by an economic disaster,” Uno, older brother of Vice Presidential Candidate Sandiaga Uno, said during a discussion Wednesday (17/10/2018) evening at the Prabowo-Sandi Media Center. “We have to be aware that those in Palu lost their source of income in no time.”

Uno, along with Dr. Benny Oktavianus and psychologist Dini Rahma, conversed and explored ways to rebuild Palu and Donggala after a devastating series of earthquake and tsunami that took the lives of thousands. Uno emphasized the need to provide sustained assistance for those eager to revitalize their economic condition.

“They need to be assisted throughout a period of time, and this remains so until they are able to restart the region’s economy on their own two feet,” Uno said.

Support can come in different forms, Uno said.

He added that helping others through relationships is a fundamental aspect in entrepreneurship, and this allows for aid in the form of access to opportunities and a stable market.

“Traditional markets that are starting to operate need to be supplied with staple goods that are affordable… unaffordability of basic goods will become a new problem in the region. Producers need to also be given outlets to sell their goods. The government, communities, or the private sector needs to take part by connecting them to a market of buyers,” Uno said. These two things need to be the focus on management altogether. (skr)

Greatindonesia.co.id, Jakarta – Ministry of Education will provide classrooms that are free from haze caused by land and forest fires in affected areas in Kalimantan and Sumatera, Minister of Education and Culture, Muhadjir Effendy, stated in Jakarta, Tuesday (17/9/2019).

“If the haze covers the air in the long term, we will see the condition. Later, I will soon announce a meeting to explore the possibility of providing haze-free classrooms,” Effendy remarked. However, if the haze is taken care of within this week, the plan would be dropped.

Modest technology, which was also used in the previous case of fire haze back in 2015, will be installed in the classroom in cooperation with Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB), he stated. The preparation takes only two to three days.

The technology covers a filter used on windows and an exhaust fan installed in the room to manage air that is circulated. There is a plan to install an aquarium inside the room to maintain humid air and oxygen production.

Besides, an interior plant will help to produce oxygen as well.

“We will prioritize vocational school (SMK) buildings since they need a practical room,” Effendy added.

The haze from the land and forest fires in Kalimantan and Sumatera had compelled several schools to stop their activities due to the dense haze which led to a very unhealthy air condition. (ptv)
