Pak President, how do you feel after visiting fishermen village? It looks lively.

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

Yes, we want to listen to aspirations from the fishermen about the current problems in the field. Licensing, conflicts within fishermen, and fishing gears are the problems that are still prevalent. I think we have listened to their aspirations and will soon find the best solution. I think minor problems in the field should be resolved.

Are those the results of your discussion with the fishermen, Pak? The discussion issues with the fishermen?

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

Those are the issues. They expressed their requests, complaints, and I think minor problems in the field should be resolved. I have instructed related officials to resolve licensing. The conflict among fishermen of different area will be notified to the Regional Police. All fishermen are brothers. Therefore, it is expected there is no longer friction among fishermen.
