This message was conveyed by the Minister of Home Affairs when giving directions for the 2022 Innovative Government Award (IGA) at the Sasana Bhakti Praja Building, Ministry of Home Affairs Office, on Friday, December 23, 2022.

In his direction, the Minister of Home Affairs revealed that innovation is an important element in supporting change. According to him, no community, state, nation or society can advance without innovation, including creativity or various breakthroughs.

Thus, innovation is an issue that must be encouraged in the current Indonesian government system. This is because the existence of these innovations can boost the Indonesian state to become more advanced. This is proven by the trust that Indonesia will host the G20 meeting in 2022.

“In my opinion the factor that made us (Indonesia) able to become a G20 country, the 20 largest economies is because the regions are all alive, alive, and this awakening is due to innovation,” said the Minister of Home Affairs.

Innovation is also an important capital for the country to face competition between nations which is getting tougher along with the birth of information technology which triggers revolutions in all fields. To survive in these conditions, the Minister of Home Affairs stressed the importance of Indonesia to increase innovation to the regional level.

“With innovation from all regions, this will boost our (Indonesia’s) position, our (Indonesia’s) competitive power will be higher,” said the Minister of Home Affairs.

The Minister of Home Affairs appreciated and congratulated the regions that received the IGA 2022 award. He said the award was given for the extraordinary hard work of each region in Indonesia. This effort is commendable. The Minister of Home Affairs also advised regions that have not yet received an award to continue to be motivated to increase innovation in their regions.

“Congratulations to colleagues who got an award, thanks for extraordinary hard work, we need to appreciate it and for those who have not been lucky to get an award, we hope this event can motivate ladies and gentlemen,” concluded the Minister of Home Affairs .

Through the Regional Innovation Index (IID) measurement and assessment system in 2022 as many as 510 Regional Governments report innovations with a total of 26,900 innovations.
