Jokowi Sees Maritime Resources as Indonesian Future

ITSCL, May 2017 - President Jokowi “Jokowi” Widodo has said Indonesia has to seriously start exploiting maritime resources, which he believes are the future of the country’s economy. He said there is only a small part of maritime resources worth Rp 17 quadrillion (US$1.28 trillion) annually that could be exploited.

Presiden Jokowi "Jokowi" Widodo mengatakan bahwa Indonesia harus secara serius dalam mengolah sumber daya maritim, yang dia yakini sebagai masa depan ekonomi negara tersebut. Dia mengatakan hanya sebagian kecil sumber daya bahari yang berhasil di olah, yaitu senilai Rp 17 triliun (US $ 1,28 triliun) per tahun yang bisa dimanfaatkan.

“Maritime resources are key to improve people’s welfare and social justice in the country,” said Jokowi in his speech at a peak event of the maritime cultural festival in Pegagan Beach, Tatah Bumbu regency, South Kalimantan, on Sunday.

"Sumber daya kelautan adalah kunci untuk meningkatkan kesejahteraan masyarakat dan keadilan sosial di negara ini," kata Jokowi dalam sambutannya pada acara puncak festival budaya maritim di Pantai Pegagan, Kabupaten Tatah Bumbu, Kalimantan Selatan, pada hari Minggu.

During the event in South Kalimantan, Governor Sahbirin Noor and Tanah Bumbu Regent Mardani Mamin demanded that the central government develop an international seaport in the area to boost the shipping industry in the province.

Dalam acar di Kalimantan Selatan, Gubernur Kalimantan Selatan Sahbirin Noor dan Bupati Tanah Bumbu Mardani Mamin meminta agar pemerintah pusat membangun pelabuhan internasional di daerah tersebut untuk mendorong industri perkapalan di provinsi ini.

In response, Jokowi said his administration needed to study the potential of the areas before deciding whether or not such a large scale seaport was needed. “I will make a note of it, meaning that we have to make a calculation on if such a project is good for the nation. If it is really good, I think we should develop it,” said Jokowi, as reported by tempo.co.

Sebagai tanggapan, Jokowi mengatakan bahwa administrasinya perlu mempelajari potensi daerah tersebut sebelum menentukan diperlukannya pelabuhan berskala besar atau tidak. "Saya akan membuat catatan tentang hal itu, artinya kita harus membuat perhitungan apakah proyek semacam itu bagus untuk bangsa. Kalau memang bagus, saya rasa kita harus mengembangkannya," kata Jokowi, seperti dilansir tempo.co.
