President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo visited on Wednesday Mama-Mama Market in Papua, a market he promised to build during his visit in 2014 soon after he was elected president.
The President, who was accompanied by First Lady Iriana, Social Affairs Minister Kofifah Indar Parawansa, Women’s Empowerment and Child Protection Minister Yohanna Yembesi and State-Owned Enterprises Minister Rini Soemarno, went on foot from his hotel to the four-story building formerly used as a bus terminal.
In Papua since Tuesday, the President officiated a number of projects in the eastern-most Indonesian province, including the Integrated State Boundary Post in Skouw, Jayapura and the construction of the 50-Megawatt (MW) feed gas-fired plant (PLTMG).
President Jokowi also witnessed the delivery of social assistance in Jayapura, such as through the Smart Indonesia Card (KIP), Indonesian Health Card (KIS) and people’s nutrition improvement program.
Papua is the last province visited by Jokowi on his five-day tour across Indonesia starting from Aceh last Saturday.
Before flying to Papua from North Maluku on Tuesday, the President inaugurated three new ports in the province -- Tapaleo, Wayabuka, and Bicoli.
"The government is prioritizing building more ports in various regions," Jokowi stated in North Maluku on Monday.
While in Papua, Jokowi also inspected the progress of the trans-Papua road, the construction of which is being carried out by the central government. (bbn)

                              Jokowi di Papua - Jubi

Jayapura, Jubi - Member of the working team of United Liberation Movement for West Papua, Markus Haluk, said that President Joko Widodo's visit to Papua will not change the focus of the Papuan people's struggle.

"The Papuan people are focused on fighting for the independence and sovereignty of West Papua Politics," the former male secretary general of the Central Highlands Students Association told Jubi by telephone on Tuesday (9/5/2017).

Although the President of the Republic of Indonesia 1001 visits to West Papua land, Haluk said will not affect the commitment of the people of Papaua to self-determination through his political vehicle.

"The attitude and struggle ULMWP as the main vehicle of the nation's politics in realizing the mission of the nation that is Merdeka and sovereign for the people of Papua," he said.

Vice Regent of Jayawijaya, Jhon R Banua met on the sidelines of preparation at Jayawijaya Regent's Office, explained that one agenda of President Jokowi's visit to Jayawijaya is to divide the Healthy Indonesia Card (KIS). Activities will be held at the Regent's office yard.

"The point is that the regional government is ready to welcome the President, for the route of his visit all depends on the protocol of the palace," said Banua.

In a different place, the Coordinator of the Jayawijaya Community Forum and the Central Papua Mountains (FMJ-PTP), Mully Wetipo also asked the President to pay more attention to schools in Papua that do not have teachers.

"Now Jokowi comes for Healthy Indonesia Card and Smart Card Indonesia, it does look good but what good are the cards if the service does not exist," said Mully. (*)
