Minister of Transportation (Menhub), Mr. Budi Karya Sumandi, although the air bridge program in Papua has only been running for two months. But the value has decreased the price disparity. Therefore, president director of PR. Angkasa Pura II is planning to realize in Kalimantan and surrounding areas. He said, "This year is a new pilot project in 12 cities in Papua and for Kalimantan and surrounding areas, our new air bridge program will be realized next year."
According to Mr. Budi Karya Sumadi, the government's effort to build a sea toll and air bridge program to provide a triger for entrepreneurs in eastern Indonesia to use it. This problem of equity is a serious problem for the government today. After the road infrastructure, bridges and sea toll programs and air bridges, the government should not be enough and do not perform other programs. This is so that the development of eastern Indonesia impact on the people directly, and required collaboration with local governments.
With the program of sea tolls and air bridges, we expect fish commodities, tapioca starch, wood, handicrafts, and seaweed were consolidated to be re-marketed to Surabaya. In fact, it can facilitate exports. If it is connected it will facilitate the distribution of goods either staple or other. Thus, there are no gaps, disparities or other inhibiting factors.
