Ilham and Rahmatin in the competition raised a problem about the Human Development Index (HDI) in each province in Indonesia. These efforts are carried out through grouping each province with appropriate characteristics. "After that, we give appropriate advice. For example the province is lacking in the education sector, we give advice such as allocating better School Operational Assistance (BOS) funds, etc., "Ilham said. (BC / RIS)
