Improving the Papuan People’s Economy with Reforestation – Many things can be done to improve the economy of the Papuan hinterlands, one of which is through reforestation. It is what PT Papua Agro Lestari or PAL has done, which has carried out the delivery and planting of fruit tree seeds to the rural communities of Guiss-Rawa Kasat Hamlet, Ulilin District, Kab.
