INDUSTRY.co.id - In a series of his working visit to East Nusa Tenggara province, President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo, Thursday (14/10), inaugurated the Wae Kelambu Multipurpose Terminal, Labuan Bajo Seaport in West Manggarai regency.

“I really appreciated the swift work, the construction was started in August 2020 and today we can inaugurate it,” the President said in his remarks.

He went on to say that construction of Wae Kelambu Multipurpose Terminal aims at dividing logistics terminal and passenger terminal as an effort to support the development of Labuan Bajo as a premium tourist destination.

According to the President, the old terminal will only serve to transport passengers since it is located in tourist destination spot, whereas logistics terminal will be relocated to the newly-inaugurated Wae Kelambu Multipurpose Terminal.

The President also expressed hope that the Multipurpose Terminal can improve smooth flow of goods transported to and from East Nusa Tenggara, particularly West Manggarai regency.

“I hope the terminal can still be in operation for 15-20 more years to transport logistics from East Nusa Tenggara province, particularly West Manggarai regency,” he said.

Also on that occasion, President Jokowi who was accompanied by First Lady Ibu Iriana and a number of ministers also officiated the merger of four state-owned port operators PT Pelabuhan Indonesia (Pelindo).
