Previously, BIN and PMI had also conducted training for young Papuan human resources. One of them is the development of corn plantations in West Papua in order to realize the land of Papua as a national food center.
BIN and PMI empowered hundreds of residents to work on the corn fields in Sitori Village, East Kebar District, Tambrauw Regency, West Papua.
“Until now, we have accommodated every tribal chief in the area to do the job, both youth and parents. As many as 120 people have worked,” said PMI Kebar Timur Coordinator Daud Amnan.
BIN and PMI continue to be committed to improving the economy of the people of Papua and West Papua. This is in line with Presidential Instruction Number 09 of 2020 concerning the Acceleration of Welfare in Papua and West Papua.
There are around 200 hectares of vacant land owned by residents which are entrusted to PMI to be managed. Currently there are 70 hectares of land that has been planted with corn.
In addition, PMI, with the support of BIN, has succeeded in collaborating with investors, namely the company PT Nuansa Lestari Sejahtera, to participate in managing the corn crop so that it runs optimally.
