The main director of PT Taman Wisata Candi Borobudur, Prambanan and Ratu Boko (TWC), Edy Setijono, as the manager of TMII said that his party had prepared the land for the construction of the new platform. “We have prepared, even though there are two concepts, whether this will be divided according to the province,” he said, Wednesday, November 16, 2022.
Because, according to Edy, the three provinces have almost similar cultures. “After all, the culture is almost the same or it becomes a relatively wider area and is managed by each of them,” he said.
Therefore, according to Edy, his party is still waiting for a request from the regional government concerned regarding the platform. In essence, TWC has prepared all the needs related to the discourse on building regional pavilions for the new province. “Depending on demand, but we have prepared the land,” he said.
The inauguration of the three new provinces was based on regulations passed on Friday, November 11, 2022. The inauguration of the South Papua Province was based on Law (UU) Number 14 of 2022, for Central Papua Province based on Law Number 15 of 2022 and Papua Mountains Province based on Law Number 16 Year 2022.
With this addition, the number of provinces in Indonesia has increased by three, from 34 provinces to 37 provinces. Currently, each province has a platform at TMII.
