The Joint Agreement was previously signed on September 8, 2015 and ended September 8, 2017.

As a member of State-Owned Enterprises, Bukit Asam is committed to implement the principles of Good Corporate Governance (GCG), and to achieve its vision to be an energy company that cares about environment. To carry out the company's commitment and vision, Bukit Asam requires support from law institutions to carry on its operational activities and meet the GCG principles.

For this reason, Bukit Asam collaborates with the Republic of Indonesia's Attorney General's Office in civil and state administration division in terms of Legal Assistance, Legal Considerations, and Other Legal Measures through the State Attorney for Bukit Asam and all Bukit Asam subsidiaries.

The Deputy Attorney General for Civil and State Administration (JAMDATUN), Loeke Larasati A., in her speech said, "The Joint Agreement is a concrete manifestation of Adhyaksa Corps' support for the implementation of PTBA's business activities. In running its business, PTBA must manage the company based on the principles of Good Corporate Governance. Legal assistance provided by the Civil Service and State Prosecutor's Office, especially to PTBA, is in line with Presidential Instruction Number 1 Year 2016 which mandates the Attorney General to provide legal assistance/ consideration, prioritizing prevention to reduce irregularities, and conversely increases company compliance on regulation," said JAMDATUN.

Bukit Asam President Director, Arviyan Arifin, said that the Joint Agreement is a synergy between SOEs and the Attorney General's Office in an effort to protect state assets. "Obviously in carrying out business operations, we will face various challenges. Therefore, we need to prepare several preventive efforts, one of which is legal assistance by the Attorney General's Office of the Republic of Indonesia, "said Arviyan.

The Public Prosecutor's Civil and State Administration Division is authorized by law to provide Legal Considerations in the form of Legal Opinion, Legal Assistance, and Legal Audit. The Consideration is a preventive action so that it is expected to reduce irregularities and to increase compliance. In addition, the Civil and State Administration Division of the Prosecutor's Office can provide Legal Assistance (non litigation and litigation) and Other Legal Actions in order to save and restore state finances. The two institutions also agreed to improve technical competences through workshops (workshops), seminars, and socialization.
