Jakarta, InfoPublik – Jakarta Social Agency held dissemination forum on giveaways regulations to the companies and business entities.

Jakarta Social Agency head Masrokhan said that various problems are still occurred in organizing giveaways event. "In 2016, many giveaways events did not obtain permission from the authority," he said at the opening of Social Assistance Fund Management dissemination forum at Travelers Hotel in Jakarta on Thursday (5/18).

In some cases, people experienced fraud in giveaways events and the organizers did not even report to the officials.

They also did not know the laws and regulations on this issue. "That is the reason why we need to explain the regulations to the organizers in Jakarta," he explained.

We hope this effort can prevent negative impacts that may arise in society by minimizing irresponsible giveaways activities.

"We also hope the participants can respond to any information to prevent people joining fake giveaways event," he said.

The forum was attended by 50 participants from companies and giveaways organizing agencies. (Translator: Wilda Stiana)
