The statement was made by Sri Mulyani when she was a mentor in the National Movement “Ignite The Nation 1000 Digital Startup Indonesia.” This meeting was held as an effort by the government to encourage the growth of the start-up industry which is now booming among millennial young people.

For example, Maritime and Fisheries Minister Susi Pudjiastuti, Minister of Communication and Information Rudiantara, Head of the Investment Coordinating Board Thomas Lembong to Bekraf Triawan Munaf.
Sri Mulyani also said that by reading financial notes, millennial children engaged in the startup industry also had the opportunity to help the government. Moreover, the government currently needs tools in the form of information systems and applications that encourage the creation of government performance accountability.
He said, a number of sectors that had the opportunity were in the sectors, education, village funds, ultra micro-credit distribution to research funds.
One of them, in the education sector, in 2020 the government will pour funds worth Rp 505 trillion in this sector. That much money, one of which will be used for the school operational budget for 270 thousand schools for 50 million students.
“How do we know if we spend hundreds of trillions of operational costs that really help school operations, I imagine with digital technology, both applications or information systems you can have a mind,” he said.

“So, my friends here, I ask for help, please help me, we are in promoting the budget so much, you can come up with an idea,” Sri Mulyani said.
