INDUSTRY.co.id - Ternate - North Maluku Transportation Agency (Dishub) (Malut) expects investor involvement in the construction of airports in regencies / cities, especially those capable of investing in large-scale business.

"Local governments have limited budgets to build airports in districts / cities, so there needs to be investor involvement in its development as a form of their support for the region," said North Maluku Transportation Division, Ismail in Ternate, Monday (09/17/2018)

In North Maluku there are still a number of districts / cities that do not have airport facilities, including Central Halmahera and Taliabu Island, so that transportation from and to the area only relies on land transportation and sea transportation.

According to him, the involvement of investors who invest in districts / cities in the construction of airports in the district / city will not only benefit the local community, but also for the business activities of the investors concerned.

In various regions in Indonesia, many investors do such things, especially investors who have investments in districts / cities far from the provincial capital and not supported by adequate transportation facilities.

He said, there were investors who expressed their willingness to build an airport in North Maluku, namely investors who are currently establishing nickel processing industries in Central Halmahera Regency.

The investor is planned to allocate a budget of at least Rp50 billion for the construction of the airport in Weda, the capital of Central Halmahera Regency which is expected to be realized in the near future because the Ministry of Transportation has stated its willingness to give permission.

He added, specifically for the development of a number of major airports in North Maluku, such as Sultan Babullah Airport in Ternate, Kuabang Kao Airport in North Regency and Leo Watimena Airport in Morotai Island Regency were entirely from the central government, even included in the national priority program.
