“We want to be better than in 2016, when forest and bush fires were reduced up to 20 percent,” Secretary General of KLHK Bambang Hendroyono said.

Jakarta (ANTARA News) – The Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK) said it hopes that this year there would be no forest fire in Indonesia.

Forest fires have left a scene of destruction almost every year in a number of Indonesian regions such as Riau, West Kalimantan and Central Kalimantan.
