goodmorningpapua.com – The 122nd Anniversary of Fakfak Regency is an encouragement for the Acting Governor of West Papua, Komjen (Purn) Drs Paulus Waterpauw, M.Si to develop a number of potentials in the region, including in Fakfak which is one of the oldest districts in the land of Papua.
An Acting governor is proud to see the current condition of his birthplace. But there is still a lot that needs to be fixed. He himself understands the slow development in Fakfak, one of which is because access to transportation is still difficult.
The solution taken is to support the completion of Siboru Airport, thereby opening a visiting room for guests and tourists. This support was accompanied by a budget disbursement for the completion of the highway in the amount of IDR 60 billion that had been submitted and this year an additional IDR 20 billion.
“Because flights are still difficult, it’s also difficult for people who want to come. So, Siboru Airport must be accomplished, which is a breakthrough. We hope that this airport can be inaugurated by the president,” he explained, Wednesday 16 November 2022 in Fakfak.
He asked that this investment be supported by adequate facilities and infrastructure, including managing tourism potential properly in order to increase regional income.
“We need to bring in investors, but there must be supporters, namely hotels, nice residences that must be built by the regent and staff,” he explained.
He mentioned that he had toured Pulau Panjang and Pulau Ega which had interesting tourist spots and these tours had to be managed properly.
“Primarily transportation routes because they want to come, it needs time, comfort and certainty,” he said.
