President to issue decree to accelerate Papua`s development

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono will soon issue a decree on accelerating development activities in Papua and West Papua provinces.

“I think we all have agreed that there should be a presidential decree to speed up development there. The decree will allow us to coordinate the existing programs to ensure that all accelerated programs in Papua will work well,” Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs Hatta Rajasa said after attending a coordination meeting on political, legal and security affairs.

He said the accelerated development programs in Papua and West Papua would focus on infrastructure projects, including crucial programs in the educational and public welfare sectors.

“Every thing will be coordinated among the ministries concerned,” he said.
