BANDUNG - Vice Governor of West Java, Deddy Mizwar thinks that the collected funds from various corporations to realize the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program remain lower compared to the number of corporations in West Java which is about 6000, while the corporations that have distributed CSR are only 127.
According to Deddy Mizwar, the lack of funds is because half of corporations directly build coordination with the local government of Regencies/Cities.
"They probably contribute to CSR, but directly to the Regency/City," he said to reporters in Bandung, Tuesday (03/14).
The Provincial Government of West Java itself cannot force a corporation to do CSR. However, the Government invites all corporations in West Java to participate in the program in order to resolve problems among the citizens.
Likewise the CSR funding, the Government receives nothing from the implementation of the program.
"In the distribution of CSR from the corporation, do not let new problems occur. Therefore, the CSR assistance should be accepted by society. The Provincial Government receives nothing or zero rupiah. We just record the activities of CSR distribution," Deddy emphasized.
The Vice Governor who is familiarly known as Demiz, considers the CSR program to be able to solve various problems.
"The existence of the CSR program initiated by corporations can resolve the problems among the society which are not handled by the government," he concluded. (MAT)
