Although East Java is the winner of the 2018 Regional Development Prize (PPD) award, they are many small villages, far from cities, still not advanced in economic development. The villages are generally villages with farmers who can not sell their products as well, so they often immigrate to the city to seek additional family income. This has certainly caused the village to be undeveloped, the people relying on assistance from outside the region, including their non permanently immigration to the city and back to the village when the harvest arrives and this will also cause social problems in the city. To anticipate conditions that may worsen the situation, it is proposed to make local product promotion facilities in the villages, so that the Government plays a role in assisting in promoting local products. By empowering Business Development Support professionals and cadres, it is expected that the real economy in remote villages can increase, and it will create a model of rural economic development in other villages in other provinces, thus increasing the speed of regional development wheels that will support the growth rate of the national economy.
