"We should be focus. We should be selective. We must abandon the old ways," Jokowi said.

The former Solo mayor urged the regents to explore economic opportunities. He urged them to attract investment interests.

"If you have around Rp100 trillion for one year, you should spend 60 percent of them for your region's leading sector," Jokowi said.
