Not only on the island of Java, but also on islands that were previously neglected. Of course, for him, President Jokowi’s leadership style is considered very different from the previous government, which is now being able to provide a platform for creative youth communities.

The construction of the PYCH building is one of the Indonesian Government’s efforts to continue to support the role of the younger generation in managing all the potential that Papua has. Furthermore, the central government supports the development of creativity centers to provide more space for Papuan and West Papuan youth in the development of technology, innovation and local Papuan products.

The HR development activity is the provision of material and hands-on practice aimed at providing new knowledge about studio photography.
It should be noted that the construction of the PYCH building in Papua was a directive, idea and support from the President of the Republic of Indonesia Joko Widodo, and BIN Head Gen. Pol (Purn) Budi Gunawan, which was then followed up by BIN Deputy IV for Economic Intelligence, Made Kartikajaya.
Meanwhile, a young Papuan from Manokwari, Simon Tabuni said that the PYCH building would be a place for young people to develop themselves, their interests and talents so that they could contribute to advancing the Land of Papua. The Papuan youth thanked President Joko Widodo and Head of BIN Budi Gunawan, for the planned construction of the PYCH building.

Not without reason, because with the inauguration of the PYCH building that was carried out, automatically the development of all the potential of the young Papuan generation will be increasingly realized, not only that, but they will also contribute to the welfare of the economy of the people of Cenderawasih Earth.
