The Memorandum of Understanding and Cooperation Agreement aims to synergize the programs and activities to be held for improving the welfare of the community in the empowerment work area of PT Vale in East Luwu Regency, South Sulawesi.

The scope of cooperation includes the development and empowerment of communities and rural areas, the implementation of the Community Development and Empowerment Program (PPM) and the Self-sustaining Village Development Program (PKPM), fostering and strengthening the capacity of government institutions at the rural and urban village level, fostering and strengthening the capacity of the Agency for Inter-village Cooperation as well as fostering and strengthening the capacity of Village-Owned Enterprises and or Inter-village Joint-Owned Enterprises.

The synergy, according to PT Vale's President Director and CEO Nico Kanter, is to comply with the new regulations, specifically the ESDM Ministerial Decree Number 1824 concerning the Implementation Guidelines for Community Development and Empowerment as well as the Village Law which directs all elements of both the government and the private sector to be together and synergize in the community development programs.

In realizing the community development program, PT Vale seeks to study the national and regional targets. We also take the new government regulations related to the village development under our consideration. We hope that with the new design and scheme of the Self-sustaining Village Development Program, the targets of village development can be achieved, including the development goals of East Luwu Regency in 2021,
