Papua to Have Proper Roads by 2018: Jokowi

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo said that all regencies in Papua would have proper land transportation channels by 2018.

“The Public Works and Public Housing Ministry must complete the construction of a road connecting Wamena to Nduga by 2016,” Jokowi said when inspecting the Nduga-Wamena road construction in Nduga Regency on Thursday, December 31, 2015.

Earlier on Wednesday, December 30, 2015, Jokowi held a meeting with Papua Governor and Nduga Regent to discuss the road construction in Nduga.

“A large port will also be constructed to accommodate up to 300 GT ships. Therefore all necessities can be distributed and prices can be cheaper,” Jokowi added.

In response to a question whether the infrastructure could change Nduga Regency’s security status, Jokowi said that the only way to change the situation in Nduga was to improve the welfare.

Accompanying Jokowi in his work visit to Papupa were First Lady Iriana Widodo, Papua Governor Lukas Enembe, Presidential chief of staf Teten Masduki, Public Works and Public Housing Minister Basuki Hadimuljono, Military commander Gen. Gatot Nurmantyo and Presidential special staff Lenis Kogoya.
