In order to convey the message of development in Papua, it needs to be strengthened jointly by the parties between the media organs such as PWRI, PWI, AJI, then youth and community leaders by educating the public in a good and measured manner.

He continued that overseeing finances is not the realm of the media, but how to control their use of them
responsibility to oversee the implementation of funds or budgets for Papua’s Special Autonomy and others.
“PWRI has started by providing education – education through our representatives, both Indigenous Papuans (OAP) and outside Papua,” he said.
