Most of House overseas trips useless, badly planned

A House of Representatives lawmaker says that most of the overseas trips conducted by members of the legislative body are not well-planned.

“For example, why should members of the Flat Housing Bill committee visit Italy? They should have gone to Singapore, a small country which has a good track record in utilizing small spaces for vertical housings,” Ahmad Muzani from the Greater Indonesian Movement Party (Gerindra) said at the House in Jakarta on Friday.
