Therefore, the topics discussed focus on elaborating on the issue of escorting Otsus scholarships and developing Papuan human resources abroad from various perspectives.

“We need to explain a problem concerning with to the Papua land development policy within the framework of Otsus, which of course has provided the widest possible access for Papua. In this case, the government has determined the education sector as the main sector for the development of Papuan human resources, which is managed by PSDM. However, in the process of development, there were many obstacles, including in terms of management and finance. This is what appears in the aspirations of students, the community and parents of students. So the question that will also be answered in this discussion is how to oversee the implementation of the Otsus scholarship fund so that it runs better in the future,” explained Rumayom in his foreword.
