Regional Expansion to Build Papua’s Independence

16
Regional expansion is considered very necessary to improve services and development for the Papuan people. 
Through regional expansion or New Autonomous Regions (DOB), it will facilitate the acceleration of development to improve public services. 
The addition of new new autonomous regions in Papua will also open up access to development which will have a welfare impact on the Papuan people. 
Because, so far only the two provinces of Papua and West Papua have been the focus of development. 
Meanwhile, both provinces have quite large areas where public services will certainly be difficult, far away and logistically expensive.
The process of expanding the Papua Province region is not only to reduce the scope of government services, but by expanding the region it is hoped that it will be able to improve the economic standard of living of local Papuan residents.
Commission II of the DPR RI, Agustinus Wilujeng Pramestuti, said that regional expansion aims to bring services closer to the welfare of the people in Papua. 
Having a new autonomous region in Papua will help facilitate health services, education, and even administration with the government. 
With DOB there will be more positions for governors, regents/mayors, members of the DPR, DPD and also DPRD. 
This means that there will be far more local Papuan politicians accommodated in seats of power. 
Thus, the mission of Special Autonomy (Otsus) for the welfare of the people will be achieved slowly.
Regional expansion in Papua is an aspiration that comes from the Papuan people themselves. 
This aspiration has existed for several years and comes from various community groups in various regions. 
The demands of various community aspirations for the expansion of a new autonomous region in the Land of Papua were loudly voiced by indigenous community groups after the reform of May 21 1998. However, the expansion of the Papua Province region was responded to dynamically. 
Papua continues to try to catch up in all development programs. 
As government leadership changes, the community’s aspirations for regional expansion continue to grow, especially during the leadership of President Joko Widodo who is committed to the welfare of indigenous Papuans in various villages and districts.
The existence of new autonomous regions is also a golden opportunity for generations in Papua to be able to obtain better welfare. 
It is hoped that the existence of a new province in Papua will encourage access to services to the community to become faster and more massive. 
With the expansion, there will be the appointment of new governors in each new province so that the people will be more protected.
On a different occasion, the Chair of the Indonesian National Youth Committee (KNPI) Biak Numfor Regency, Papua, Jemmy C. Krobo, said that the creation of new autonomous regions in Papua and West Papua Provinces aims to shorten the span of control of government bureaucratic services to the community. 
Papua New Zealand is an extraordinary policy provided by the government to build community welfare. 
It is believed that Papua’s new autonomous region will be able to absorb the human resources of indigenous people more optimally.
Implementing the Papua Special Region is the most appropriate way to optimize services to the indigenous Papuan community, as well as realizing the government’s efforts to equalize development.
Progress after the construction of new autonomous regions is because people will be closer to public service centers, and of course this will be followed by the construction of other facilities such as health centers, terminals and various facilities that can be used by the community. 
The government’s main task is to serve the community, so that the development of new autonomous regions is an effort to speed up the service process in Papua.
Development in Papua must continue to be encouraged, because it can stimulate progress which also has an impact on improving the quality of everything. 
The acceleration of new autonomous development will of course provide new opportunities for local people to develop their potential. 
The development of new autonomous regions also aims to divide regional government tasks into increasingly specific areas and focus on areas far from the center of government.
It is hoped that this DOB development effort will be able to reduce the distance people travel so that the Papuan people can save money, time and energy when they want to access public facilities. 
Moreover, every new province that is formed, all of them have their own offices and public service centers, so that it will make things easier for the community.
The government wants at least 80 percent of ASN in Papua to be native Papuans, so that improvements in community welfare can truly be realized. 
Equitable development must be carried out because it is not only Jayapura, Merauke or Wamena that are getting a touch of modernization. 
But it also reached Yahukimo and other areas in Papua. 
Development must be carried out to remote areas so that people feel the benefits.
Infrastructure created in the context of equitable development is not just roads and bridges. 
But also electricity, internet networks and various other facilities. 
Society will progress in various fields because it gets support from the government, and Papuans will no longer be identified with traditional life. 
The Government’s strong desire, which includes human resource development, infrastructure development, and support for fair development policies for the interests of the Papuan people, is the main capital for developing the prosperity of the Land of Papua. 
All of these things were presented in the Advanced Indonesia Cabinet era. 
In this way, Papua can immediately become a region that is economically and humanly advanced, with a prosperous community life.
