Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh,
Good afternoon,
May peace be upon us all.

Distinguished Ministers; Minister of State Secretary, Minister of State-owned Enterprises, Minister of Public Works and Public Housing in attendance;
Distinguished Governor of Riau province, and Regents; Regent of Rokan Hilir, Regent of Bengkalis, and Mayor of Dumai in attendance;
Distinguished Speaker of the Riau Regional House of Representatives (DPRD), Members of the DPRD in attendance,
Distinguished Customary Leaders, Prominent Community Figures,
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Distinguished Guests.

The problem of water supply is found in almost all provinces, regencies, and municipalities, particularly the problem of raw water in regencies and municipalities. Alhamdulillah, thank God, today we can witness the Drinking Water Supply System (SPAM) for the people of Rokan Hilir, Bengkalis, and Dumai. The System will provide water supply to Rokan Hilir; provide good quality drinking water to 32,000 households in Dumai, Rokan Hilir, and Bengkalis.

The project spent a budget of Rp396.6 billion. The significant amount of money was sourced from the Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing. Meanwhile, a five-hectare plot of land was provided by [local government] of Rokan Hilir regency.

Therefore, since the system has just been inaugurated, how many percent of the water is consumed so far? It’s only 400 liter per second. We hope the system can provide drinking water to more people, to households around here. Thus, the project will be followed up once the provision of 32,000 households is settled.

I conclude my remarks. Hopefully, it can provide high quality drinking water for Rokan Hilir, Bengkalis, and Dumai which will make our society healthy and prosperous. By saying bismillahirrahmanirrahim, today I officially inaugurate Dumai, Rokan Hilir, and Bengkalis Drinking Water Supply System in Rokan Hilir regency, Riau province.

I thank you.

Wassalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
