Jayapura, Papua (ANTARA News) - President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) has observed the distribution of 3,331 land certificates to people in Jayapura, Papua Province, as the legal ownership letter of the land.

"Let me count all the certificates. The certificate is a legal land ownership proof owned by the public. I have asked the minister to accelerate the land certification program in all regions of Indonesia," the president said here on Wednesday.

Jokowi attended the land certificates distribution in Jayapura Head District Office of Gunung Merah Sentani during his working visit to Papua Province.

According to Minister of Agrarian and Spatial Sector Sofyan Djalil, 2,058 people attended the certificate distribution.

From 3,331 certificates that were distributed, 767 certificates were for Kerom District, 768 certificates were for Jayapura District, and 463 certificates were distributed to the people of Jayapura City.

Meanwhile, the government also distributed certificates to other districts, such as Sarmi, Biak Numfor, Merauke, Jayawijaya, Yapen Islands, Nabire, and Mimika.

The president also reminded people to maintain the condition of the certificates.

He also reminded the owners to calculate the payment when the people wanted to use the certificate as the collateral to a bank to gather venture capital.

During his speech, Jokowi also asked people to maintain peace and calm ahead of the head regional election in 2018 and the general election year in 2019.

In 2017, the government had distributed 70 thousand land certificates to the people of Papua.

The ministry targets to add another 20 thousand certificates in 2018.

Jokowi will conduct a working visit to Papua from April 11 to 13, 2018. He also plans to visit a remote area in Asmat District to observe the recovery efforts of malnutrition and measles cases in the area.

Around 3,000 Papua residents received land certificates directly handed over by President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo in a ceremony at the Jayapura regent office in Gunung Merah, Sentani city, Jayapura, Papua, on Wednesday.
It was the first time Jokowi had distributed land certificates in Papua, which he has visited eight times in total since he was first elected President in 2014.
Yawa Bosway, a resident of Sarmi regency who attended the ceremony to receive a land certificate, expressed his gratitude for being able to get a certificate for his land without a complicated, costly process.
“I feel happy and want to thank Pak Jokowi because I have been able to receive this certificate so easily. My land in Sarmi is around 2,000 square meters or 2 hectares,” said Yawa.
At 3 p.m. local time on Wednesday, Jokowi and his entourage arrived at Sentani Airport in Jayapura, from where he proceeded to the Gunung Merah regent office, where thousands of residents had gathered and waited for his arrival for hours.
In the certificate handover ceremony, Jokowi told the residents that the certificates were proof of their land ownership. “By holding the certificates, we will feel more secure because the ownership right of our land has become clearer,” he said.
“I have ordered the Agrarian and Spatial Planning Minister [Sofyan Djalil] to accelerate the distribution of land certificates in all provinces across Indonesia. In 2017, we gave 70,000 certificates to people in Papua and this year, we will increase it to 80,000. I hope this target can be met,” said Jokowi. (ebf)
