The Indonesian government set five priority programs this year that continue the government's seven economic priority programs implemented last year, the Bisnis Indonesia daily reported here on Wednesday.

"We would direct the development programs mainly to support the national economy activities aimed at increasing economic growth, creating and opening more jobs and reducing poverty," Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said on the sidelines of handing over the 2010 preliminary budget to the ministries in the presidential palace on Tuesday.

The five priority programs comprised of improving the social protection system for the people, human resources improvement, improving national security, law and bureaucracy reform, economy recovery supported by agriculture, energy and infrastructure and improving the natural resource management and good climate change handling.

On the occasion, the president declared his government's development theme this year called "National Economic Recovery and People's Welfare Preservation."

The president expected that by setting the five priority programs, the government would be able to spend its budget efficiently.

He also said that the five priority programs were in line with the action plans he set for his first 100 days governing the country.
