goodmorningpapua.com – The Papua Province Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin) continues to encourage the utilization of the potential of sago on Cenderawasih Earth to be maximized.
A Chairman of the Papua Provincial Chamber of Commerce, Ronald Antonio Bonay, said that one of the steps taken was to do a lobby for inviting and convincing investors to enter Papua, especially those in the food sector.
“The first step this year is the Kadin Papua meeting and visiting a modern and sophisticated sago factory in Bangka Belitung,” he said, Tuesday, January 18, 2022.
For him, the potential of sago in Papua is extraordinary, so his party deliberately made the visit to see the modern and sophisticated processing of sago flour.
“It is necessary to utilize the sago forest in Papua without destroying the forest, so we are looking for investors who are not only concerned with business profits but also the balance of nature, and also continue to look for ways to think about sustainability,” he explained.
He explained that his party is also thinking about the role of the local Papuan community, because he does not want the extraordinary potential of sago in Papua to be controlled by investors, but must partner with the community so that there is a good economic cycle around the industry.
“Many people actually do not feel anything and even become victims of development, for that for Kadin Papua the arrival of investors is the most important thing, it must have a positive impact,” he added.
He added that visiting a sago factory in Bangka Belitung is very important to get information before being invited to be a partner to build a factory in Papua, to work together to manage the vast potential of sago in Bumi Cenderawasih.
