governments around the world as subsidizing energy costs. indonesia is taking those subsidies away. why? because it had been a huge part in the nation. national budget, we know that there has been increase in the global oil prices in the beginning. what that intended to, but because i'm assuming be saturday, july agency. so in the, in the major mentioned by the function for subsidy is the always the price to be like the $3.00 us dollar. but when the oil run increased, more than $100.00, and then you've already been huge. but nobody's been, i've been goldman and they don't enjoy it anymore. so that's why i think they take out the problems. so the systems become on affordable,
4:35 pm
but i find it interesting that they're only just working out now that a lot of these subsidies weren't going to the right people. we can ration every time i, every time they go about subsidies, people are the people we will get the benefit from that. but we cannot the pickup is because of the assumption if you would like to put the bridges, but to get to obtain the subsidies just like the people we have to like, i mean the money story in, in, in the gas station you just have to put more control in it, like you, you want to get stations. so the people, i mean, the rich people cannot get the subsidies. but when you fix the people, the people will be affected more because not only affected how they will get it, they get it or are diffused what will face consumption as well
4:36 pm

4:37 pm

4:38 pm
people use it and also a people use it. but in another crossings, like in a matter, people use their own site. so when the prices p a petition, maybe they will use us, but i think people with in, in, in, in a lot at stake, environmentally and health wise for the indonesians and also asians. what else has, what i thank you very much for being on d. w.
