JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com Vice Governor of Jakarta Basuki Tjahaja Purnama still insisted to hold Jakarta Fair or Pekan Raya Jakarta (PRJ) for free outside the building JIExpo Kemayoran. The city administration will hold a Jakarta Fair at the National Monument (Monas) to be enjoyed by all society.
"To be sure, JIExpo is not a patent holder to hold Jakarta Fair, which means that the city government is entitled to create an event out there," Basuki said at City Hall, Jakarta, Wednesday (5/6/2013).
Basuki said that his side will learn more about the Regional Regulation (Perda) which regulates the implementation of the Jakarta Fair. Prior to the Jakarta Fair, the exhibition was called PRJ, because it was held for a week or about seven days before the Jakarta Capital City Anniversary. When changed its name to Jakarta Fair, the event was held for one month.
In addition, he will also study the legal side of organizing the annual agenda, whether to use PT JIExpo as a single organizer or may be transferred to other organizers.
"We still have to study the law, that is the area that is controlled by them, if we want to use another place it can be just exhibition or they still exhibition there, they want to use Jakarta Fair, please, if for HUT DKI, make Pekan Raya Jakarta alone can dong? " said the former East Belitung Regent.
If Jakarta Provincial Government is implementing PRJ, then he said, DKI will determine the organizer through the investment auction or beauty contest. The organizers must also be willing to share the profits to the Provincial Government of DKI.
"We can make a beauty contest, such as organizing Fauna Flora Festival, so who will dare to make the event, we will learn the event like what, and he must donate a few billion for example to us, or someone who invited us to share the total income of Jakarta Fair. For example the total turnover, he wanted for us how much, "said Basuki.
