Jayapura, Jubi – The Papua Legislative Council (DPRP) of Papua province has approved the budget of Rp 4.3 billion to build a market for women traders in a plenary session this week.
“In discussions with the Department of Public Works few days ago, we agreed will push the budget of Rp 4.3 billion in the plenary session that will be held on Wednesday (05/08/2015),” the chairman of Commission IV of DPRP on Infrastructure, Boy Markus Dawir.
“The budget will be used for the early stages of development such as laying the first stone, the clearance of the location and preparation of the land, ” Dawir said on Monday (03/08/2015).
According to him, the DPRP has also been listening to aspirations of Papuans women traders.
“There are tents from Australia to be installed to replace the tents that have leaked but still used by the traders. So if there are issues or if the statement said that the government is not serious to deal with their aspirations, it is not true. Actually we, DPRP and local government are working to realize it, “he said.
While chairman of the DPRP Working Committee (Panja) of Papua women market, Natan Pahabol said, there must be written assurance between Papua provincial government and Perum Damri before Damri occupies the land temporarily. (Arjuna Pademme/ Tina)
