He said that currently Bangka Belitung is a strategic and efficient international shipping lane, so that with existing port facilities it is expected to have a very good impact on economic development in the region.

"Bangka Belitung has seven ports, namely two on Belitung Island and five on Bangka Island. In addition, the Bangka Belitung Sea with its wealth can also be compared to other islands in Sumatra," he said.

In addition to having marine wealth, Bangka Belitung also has 450 islands, of which 50 islands have been occupied by residents. "There are 400 islands that have not been touched, so you can imagine how beautiful the island is and this is a potential that we can develop," he said.
