goodmorningpapua.com – The Presidential Staff Office (KSP) reminded the local government in Papua Province to accelerate development in mountainous areas with a traditional territory approach.
KSP Main Expert Theo Litaay conveyed that, when receiving an audience from the Regent of Deiyai Papua, Ateng Edowai at Bina Graha Jakarta, Tuesday (23/11/2021).
“Currently there are still several obstacles, namely data collection on development priorities and industries that the Deiyai local government will work on,” said Theo.
Deiyai Regency is a district resulting from the division of Paniai Regency, Papua Province, with an area of about 518.04 square kilometers and a population of 91,138 people.
Several development plans for 2021-2023 include river ports, development of tourist destinations, improvement of the Trans Papua Road, hospitals and health centers, as well as construction of lake docks and self-help teachers’ housing.
“Those programs need to be coordinated with the central government by means of relevant ministries/agencies so that they can be accelerated, and KSP will facilitate them,” said Theo.
Theo explained that since the KSP was early formed, it has focused on the issue of equitable development in Papua.
He is also optimistic that development in Deiyai Regency will not only reduce inequality between regions in Papua province, but also encourage the spirit of development in all corners of the country.
Meanwhile, at the same time, KSP also received an audience from the chairman of Commission II DPR Papua, Mega Mansye Nikijuluw.
On that occasion, KSP asked the members of the council in Papua province to assist the local government in resolving problems quickly for all development constraints in all sectors.
“The President has instructed that the acceleration of the transformation of the Papuan economy based on traditional territories from upstream to downstream must be conducted in an integrated manner. The role of the DPRP is to oversee and to assist the regional government,” said a Main Expert Staff of KSP Theo Litaay.
