Jakarta (ANTARA) – The Melanesian Spearhead Group (MSG) visited Papua, Indonesia and observed that the easternmost region of the country is generally in a stable and conducive area so that the socio-economic activities of the people can run well.

Usman Kansong, Chair of the Public Communications Task Force for Papuan Prosperity, praised MSG Director General Leonard Louma and Executive Advisor Christopher Nisbert for conducting a direct review of the efforts made by the Indonesian government to develop the region.

“Their visit is a positive step and should be appreciated because the two MSG leaders witnessed firsthand the real conditions in the Land of Birds of Paradise,” he said in a statement received in Jakarta, Wednesday.

Director General Louma and Executive Advisor Nisbert during a visit to Jayapura City, Papua Province, Monday (17 June) praised the real conditions in the region.

Both figures share the same view that Indonesia, as a member of the MSG, has demonstrated good practices in managing its border areas.

They said it would be better for MSG member countries to emulate the steps taken by Indonesia in managing borders well in an effort to thwart illegal activities, as has repeatedly happened on the border between Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands.

Apart from that, the two Melanesian figures noted that they view Indonesia’s big role in ASEAN as a determining and crucial factor for the interests of MSG member countries.

Director General Louma stated that he would support plantation cooperation between MSG countries by involving Indonesia in various projects, including the vanilla plantation program in Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands.

Standing among the largest vanilla producers in the world besides Papua New Guinea, Indonesia can help MSG countries penetrate the ASEAN vanilla market, he said, adding that MSG is really trying to increase Indonesia’s involvement in the Melanesian sub-region.

Louma also used his visit to Papua to explore the potential for educational cooperation between MSG and Indonesia. In this regard, both parties aim to carry out student, student and lecturer exchanges.

Meanwhile, Expert Staff at the Presidential Staff Office (KSP) Theo Litaay assessed that the visit of MSG representatives to Indonesia would have a positive impact on the economic, socio-cultural and political aspects of the subregion.

“Cooperation in this sub-region can stimulate economic growth in the Pacific as a whole. “Countries in this sub-region will be able to take advantage of Southeast Asia’s economic growth and use it as a catalyst for their development,” he said.

Previously, the MSG delegation arrived at the border area of ​​Skouw Papua and Wutung Papua New Guinea Provinces at 10.00 local time after traveling overland from Port Moresby.

The group was then welcomed directly by the Indonesian Consul Alexander Tangkuman at the Skouw State Border Post.

Officials from the Papua Province Border and Cooperation Agency then picked up Louma and Nisbert to continue their journey to Jayapura City to see firsthand the development of Papua.
