Jayapura, Jubi – Papua Goveror Lukas Enembe said tackling problems in the management of border areas and the strategy required coordination among technical institutions, both at national and local levels.

“All the technical agencies play a very important role,” Enembe said in Jayapura, Papua on last week.

In addition, he said the handling of the border area between countries also need to take into account the problems associated with the authority of the relevant agencies to manage it, whether it is the responsibility of the central government, provincial government or the regency/city.

“Coordination is essential in order to avoid overlapping. Papua is one of the 33 provinces in the territory of the Republic of Indonesia, which has a direct border with other countries both land and sea border, which is bordered by the State of Papua New Guinea, Australia and the Republic of Palau, “he said.


Other challenges such as border management, border management officials are becoming very complex issues including the geographical nature so that until now government services to the public could not be maximized.

“It is obviously an impact on social welfare and public services such as accessibility to transport services, communications, information, education, health, electricity, water and nine staples that are still very low,” said Enembe.

Meanwhile, head of the Border and Foreign Cooperation of Papua province, Suzana Wanggai said as many as seven National Postal Transboundary (PLBN) will be built by central government including one post in Skouw area.

“For Indonesia, there are seven PLBN in this year that must be built,” Suzana Wanggai said on Sunday (5/7 / 2015).

According to her, the border area is the authority of the Central and Provincial Government of Papua and they have committed to realize the border as part of Indonesia. (Alexander Loen/ Tina)
