In addition, the planned construction of the Creative Economy Center in all 27 cities / regencies in West Java, also received a positive assessment. The creative economy developed, in line with the vision of the West Java mission in the future which will also focus on the creative economy on a digital and technological basis.
Economic growth, continued Emil, comes from many factors, one of which is innovation. The investment that is becoming a trend today is technology based.
"With technology, it will have added value. People in West Java are motivated to have higher education so that their qualifications can compete globally," he said.
Emil, the Governor's nickname, also claimed to be studying in other Provinces, to also advance in other development fields.
"Fastabiqul khairat Leadership, all compete in goodness, learn from each other, and inspire each other," he said.
"There is an APPSI Governor organization that provides a lot of development coordination, and also an appreciation for provinces that have leaps and bounds," Emil continued.
The Chairperson of APPSI, who is also the Governor of East Java, Soekarwo, explained that APPSI must play a role in strengthening synergy and connectivity between regions.
APPSI is expected to become a forum for leadership interaction. This can be done through the management of the provincial government and management of regional potential for community welfare.
"APPSI is also a bridge to the Province with the Center," he said.
The goal is to create a clean, effective, confident, creative and responsible local government to make regional autonomy successful (otda).
"The Governor is the representative of the Central Government in the region. The Governors must try to do something extraordinary," said Pakde Karwo, his nickname.
So it is important according to Pakde Karwo, to create a "data center" about Indonesian companies to reduce imports and substitution of commodities.
"There needs to be a data base between regions, so that we have benefits between regions and other regions," he said.
The Director of Jawa Pos, Leak Kustiyo, said that the Awards or Awards given were a form of "respect" to the Governor who had worked hard to serve the people of the nation and the country.
"Managing the trillion funds for years, 'the 16 million 18 sprains have also been able to collapse the image of the Governor and his families," Leak said.
"Then the Governor Award aims to appreciate the Government's performance, improve the positive image of the government in the eyes of the public, and the achievements will be emulated by other provinces," he said.
Leak stated that a series of assessment stages had been carried out by a team of judges who were also experts. The governor with the highest achievement will receive an award consisting of 19 fields in 2 categories, Adhi Purna Karya Award and Adhi Purna Prima Award.

Meanwhile, the award in the Adhi Purna Karya Award category, aimed at the Governor who successfully led and created until the end of his administration, and Adhi Purna Prima Award, was for the Governor who succeeded in leading until his leadership continued.
