75 Thousand Villages Need Touch of Higher Education


At least 75 thousand villages spread over various islands in Indonesia need the touch of universities to build and develop these villages.

Secretary General of the Ministry of Rural, Development of Disadvantaged Regions, and Transmigration (Kemendesa PDTT), Anwar Sanusi said that the number of villages that reached about 75 thousand and scattered on various islands, require not simple responsibility from higher education. According to him, higher education as  institutions of science could become partners for Kemendesa PDTT which was mandated to oversee rural development plans.

Anwar said that higher education has the necessary competence to be able to contribute to the government in order to produce a policy that is consistent with the context and needs of the communities/ society.
