Plt. The Head of the Ministry of Education and Culture's Public Relations and Cooperation Bureau, Anang Ristanto, in his remarks at the opening of the event, expressed his appreciation to BPMP Bali for facilitating this activity and this is a form of collaboration and mutual cooperation to improve public information disclosure, especially at the Ministry of Education and Culture. In 2022, his party has started to conduct an independent assessment of public information disclosure and has given appreciation in Jakarta. The plan is that in 2023 it will again carry out an independent assessment of public information disclosure. Through this assessment, it is hoped that public information disclosure will be carried out both in ministries and UPTs and PTNs according to standards set based on applicable laws and regulations and of course all information can be obtained by the public in accordance with applicable regulations.
"On this occasion I would also like to remind again that public information disclosure is very important in this era of public information disclosure and in the digitalization era, especially because we are currently also playing with social media, which the public can easily access and the public can give us feedback. Therefore, "In this openness of public information, of course, the community plays a role in controlling every step and policy taken by public bodies, namely the Ministry of Education and Culture and the work units in their environment," he said.
Besides that, we must be accountable to the public for the administration of government, especially in the Ministry of Education and Culture and the work units under it, because the budget that is managed is from the community.
