JAKARTA - The government needs the cooperation with the private sector or enterprises through the Government Cooperation Scheme Enterprises (KPBU) to be able to build equally the infrastructure in eastern Indonesia. These solutions could support the development of West Papua, especially the city of Sorong into a developed city in all sectors, including infrastructure.

It was presented by Yusid Toyib, Director General of Construction of the Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing (KEMENPUPR), during the opening of the Regional Forum 'Changing Paradigm Infrastructure Investment, Cooperation Partners Forum for Construction Services and Technical Guidance Monitoring and Evaluation Partnership and Empowerment', Wednesday (23/11) in West Papua.

"For example, the construction of the Trans-Papua could be built by the private sector, how? The government could provide assets such as land around the road plan that will build and give an opportunity to the private sector to be able to manage the land around the road that will be built ", said Yusid Toyib, as reported from, Thursday (11/24/2016 ).

Development of infrastructure projects through KPBU scheme can provide greater confidence on the part of private investors. It is necessary for ripening the concept of collaboration between government and enterprises, in order to accelerate infrastructure development in Indonesia.

Yusid Toyib said to be able to build infrastructure not only with money but also can be an asset. This is done so that the road construction is not economically feasible or financially can be really helpful to improve the economy of the region.

All this to realize the mandate of the president of the Republic of Indonesia that encourages the development of infrastructure in Indonesia must be done equally, no longer focused on Java-centric, but Indonesia-centric.
