    Sri Mulyani explained about Indonesia's debt

    DAILY UMMAT ■ Minister of Finance Sri Mulyani Indrawati explained the debt condition that occurred in the 2020 State Budget (APBN).

    This was expressed by Sri Mulyani in teaching activities to students throughout Indonesia. This activity is a series of the 5th Ministry of Finance teaching carried out simultaneously on the same day by more than 1250 volunteers and 84 schools in the country.

    She said this year's state revenue was not comparable to government spending. So that to cover the difference, the government was forced to withdraw the debt.

    In the Presidential Decree Number 72 of 2020, state revenue is set at only IDR 1,699.1 trillion. Meanwhile, state spending reached Rp. 2,738.4 trillion. Thus, there is still a difference or deficit of IDR 1,039.2 trillion.

    "If the income is only Rp1,699 trillion, but where do you get more of it? From debt," she said at the Ministry of Finance's teaching event, Monday (30/11).

    Sri Mulyani realized that debt was often considered bad by the community. But on the one hand, the government still needs debt because it needs to be issued so much because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

    She added, actually it could be reduced state spending. However, the impact can be on society. Because when the government reduces spending, it must really maintain its spending, it must be efficient, effective, efficient and must not be corrupted.

    "Well, if the spending is maintained, the income is less than we owe it because there are so many needs," she said.

    She said the budget allocation for handling Covid-19 and economic recovery reached hundreds of trillions. Where the health budget reaches IDR 97.90 trillion, social protection IDR 233 trillion, and sectoral K / L and local government IDR 65.97 trillion.

    In addition, there is also MSME assistance of IDR 115 trillion, corporate financing of IDR 61.22 trillion and business incentives of IDR 120.6 trillion
