Papua invites investors for Biak satellite station

The Papua provincial administration will build a satellite telecommunication station in Biak Numfor regency within the next five years to improve communications in isolated areas. Papua Vice Governor Alex Hesegem said improvement in the telecommunications sector will enable Papuans to communicate with the outside world.

Hesegem said the administration had invited people interested in investing in Papua to join the project, a top priority in the administration's five-point development program. "The administration needs to work hard to realize this project. It will be directly overseen by Papua Governor Barnabas Suebu. We are positive about the satellite station because Papuans have already realized the importance of sophisticated telecommunications technology," he said.
