President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo on Wednesday (8/1) departed for Natuna Regency of Riau Islands Province for a working visit.

President Jokowi and his entourage left Halim Perdanakusuma Air Force Base, Jakarta, aboard the Indonesia-1 Presidential Aircraft at around 07.35 Western Indonesian Time and landed at Raden Sadjad Air Force Base, Natuna Regency.

The President is scheduled to inspect vessel line up and meet with hundreds of fishermen at the Integrated Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Center (SKPT) in Lampa Strait.

He is also scheduled to hand over land ownership certificates at the Regent’s office before heading back to Jakarta.

The President’s working visit to Natuna Regency is paid amid the country’s ongoing spat with China over the latter’s controversial naval maneuvers in Indonesia’s Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) in the North Natuna Sea.

Also accompanying President Jokowi during the visit were, among others, Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Arifin Tasrif, Presidential Chief of Staff Moeldoko, Commander of the Indonesian National Defense Forces (TNI) Hadi Tjahjanto, and Deputy Minister of Agrarian Affairs and Spatial Planning/Deputy Head of National Land Agency Surya Tjandra.
