The accolade was awarded to Suhariyanto, Head of the Central Statistics Agency, Idham Azis, Chief of the Indonesian National Police, and Attorney General ST Burhannudin.
Minister Tjahjo expressed his appreciation to the 763 government units across Indonesia that have worked to establish an “integrity zone” encompassing an Anti-Corruption Area and Clean Bureaucratic Services Area.
