The ministry of research, technology and higher education presented on January 3 awards to officials tasked with public relations and public service reports management in agencies under the leadership of the ministry.

The event was held at Diponegoro University. The jury board consisted of independent experts, such as member of presidential special staff on public communications Adita Irawati, digital strategist Nukman Luthfie and Nagaru Communication founder Dian Agustine Nuriman.

“I hope PR officers in the agencies could become better and better,” said ministry’s secretary-general Ainun Na’im.

President Joko Widodo said on April 16, 2018, that government PR staffers would need to become “quicker” in disseminating information, especially about government accomplishments.
