The government continues to strive in optimizing development for the Papuan people so that they feel justice as enjoyed by the people of other regions in Indonesia.

The success of development in Papua Province should be a benchmark because of the government’s great attention to the people of Papua.

It is not an easy matter to realize various development programs in Papua that has an area three times the size of the island of Java.

Not only the trans road in Papua that was built by the government of President Jokowi-Ma’ruf Amin, but also the access road to the border of neighboring Papua New Guinea.

In addition, new docks or ports were also built and revitalized old ports to strengthen sea toll transportation to assist the Papuan people in meeting basic and affordable basic needs.

This includes the revitalization of various airports as a bridge for the distribution of goods to improve the local community’s economy.

Various products that were previously difficult to find in Papua, are now easier to market to the public because of connectivity in the transportation sector.

“The development of transportation facilities in the transportation sector is still the government’s concern through the Ministry of Transportation,” said the Special Staff of the Minister of Transportation for Economic Affairs and Transportation Investment, Wihana Kirana Jaya, Saturday (7/5).

The policy of the government is to develop the transportation sector in Papua, because people in the mountains of Papua whose lives are very dependent on the connectivity of air transportation.

“Officers of the Ministry of Transportation are also continuing to build a number of airport facilities in Papua so that people can experience convenience like other Indonesian citizens on the islands of Java, Sumatra and Kalimantan,” he said.

The construction of an airport in the mountains of Papua by the Ministry of Transportation is also very supportive of the one-price fuel oil (BBM) policy throughout the Papua region.

Before the one-price fuel policy was implemented, the fuel price was IDR 50,000 per liter to Rp 100 thousand / liter.

With the one-price fuel policy enacted by the government, people in Papua can buy fuel for Rp. 6,500/liter the same as other regions in Indonesia.
