Therefore there needs to be a synergy between the Ministry and the University in realizing a reliable village apparatus so that village funds can be optimal. In line with this, on Thursday, April 22, 2021, the Directorate General of Fiscal Balance (DJPK) of the Ministry of Finance in collaboration with the Faculty of Economics and business (FEB) of the University of Lampung held a Financial Management Training and Utilization of Village Potential “Village Head Enters Campus”.

In his remarks, the Director of the General Transfer Fund of the DJPK welcomed this event as a step to strengthen the institutions and capacity of village heads in optimizing village funds that have been rolled out since 2017. In addition, this activity can also be a good step for collaboration between universities and villages in map the potential and develop sustainable villages. This activity was filled with material presentations on village policies (delivered by Dr. Ambya, SE, M.Si and Fajar Satria Kesumah, SE, FBE), village financial management (presented by Neny Desriani, SE, MSAk, and Resha Moniyana Putri, SE, M.Si), and optimizing village business and insight (presented by Sri Waluyo, Ph.D and Arif Darmawan, SE, MA).
