"I remember meeting with the Governor (Frans Lebu Raya) in Tampak Siring, Bali, Lippo was moved and called to invest in Kupang which is economically limited and needs support, therefore we need the support of Mr. Governor," he said when giving a speech representing investors.
He admitted that if he wants to make a profit, he does not need to go to Kupang or to NTT to do business. However, his business calls in Kupang because he was moved to help people in NTT.
Lippo has built Siloam Hospital in Kupang and West Manggarai, as well as the first shopping center in Kupang, Lippo Plaza.
In the education sector, he added, NTT needs an increase in human resources.
He continued his presence in NTT is not merely doing business, but helping to improve the economy of the people of NTT.
On that occasion, James received an award from the Governor of NTT Frans Lebu Raya, because it has helped East Nusa Tenggara especially Kupang.
Meanwhile, Frans Lebu Raya in his speech expressed his gratitude to all those who have helped the development in NTT.
"Such as creating jobs in Kupang City, as well as helping improve the economic community," said the governor of NTT two periods.
