Jayapura (ANTARA) - The Papua provincial government is upbeat about President-elect Joko Widodo (Jokowi) continuing infrastructure development, so far, conducted in the province, during the second term of his administration.

Secretary of the Papua provincial government Hery Dosinaen stated here on Monday that infrastructure development projects so far implemented in the province, including construction of the TransPapua road, will be continued.

"The development of local infrastructure has a major impact on boosting the economy of Papuans," he remarked.

Dosinaen expressed gratitude for the safe and smooth implementation of all stages of the presidential election for the appointment of the new elected president and vice president.

"The success of the presidential election is, of course, inseparable from the hard work of the TNI (Indonesian national army) and Police apparatus, and other related parties in maintaining a conducive situation, as are the people who contribute in maintaining safety, especially in Papua," he affirmed.

He also called on all Papuans to not be incited easily by any parties that intent to hinder the security and stability in Indonesia, particularly in Papua. EDITED BY INE
