In the midst of the global economic slowdown, President Joko ‘Jokowi’ Widodo finally took real action, not rhetoric, to prevent the national economic condition from getting worse.
Jokowi and Sudirman Said have shown that this government has the courage to end the wrong energy policy, i.e. subsidy, that has gone unresolved for many years. This government certainly has the guts to do what needs to be done.
This decision came as a great relief after months of rhetoric. The decision to end gasoline fuel subsidies is a kind of relief. This decision answered all the doubts.
