Jayapura, Jubi – At least 30 members of the Indigenous Entrepreneurs Board (KAPP) in Papua attended a workshop in Jayapura this week to encourage the publication of Gubernatorial Regulation as a reference implementation of Special Bylaw (Perdasus) No. 18 of 2008 on Economic Democracy.
Presenters in the workshop in the Hall Development Center and Women’s Development (P3 W) in Padang Bulan were from Perindakop and Papua Provincial Legal Bureau, NGOs, and academics from the University of Cendrawasih.
The chairman of KAPP, Merry Costavina Yoweni, said she hoped there would be the draft of Governor regulation that 3.5 percent of the budget of the Special Autonomy Fund can be allocated and used to increase the economic welfare of Papuans.
“Besides academics, we also invite indigenous experts and NGO. This will be pursued by a formulation team that includes involving the Department of Trade as relevant agencies who will propose the draft to the Bureau of Law,” Merry C Yoweni added.
According to her, a week or two weeks later, KAPP will push it to the Legal Bureau. “We believe that KAPP is a sample used by governor to implement his vision and mission and it gives great opportunities. Hopefully in two years our targets can be seen, “she stated.
Meanwhile, a member of Commission II of Papua Legislative Council on economics, Pendis Enumbi said it hoped, the Governor of Papua immediately issue for the implementation of the gubernatorial regulation No. 18 of 2008. (Arjuna Pademme/ Tina)
