Statement of President of the Republic of Indonesia at the Inspection of Bale Purbo Fishing Boat Pier, Gresik Regency, East Java Province, April 20, 2022
First, I met fishers to examine in detail how much they earn each day and what difficulties they face. Here, it is also hard to get diesel fuel. Although it is available, it is a bit difficult to get. Therefore, the issue was solved by Minister Erick (Minister of State-Owned Enterprises) and Minister of Marine Affairs and Fisheries. A small petrol station will be made especially for fishers, owned by, as the Regent said, Regional-Owned Enterprise. There.
Second, about siltation in this area. I will order Minister of Public Works and Public Housing to overcome this issue as well.
Third, concerning land certificate owned by the fishers who live in villages near this beach, because the land was formed due to alluvion. Alluvion is similar to land reclamation, but it is naturally formed by sediment. They said certificates cannot be made for this land. I directly called Minister of Agrarian Affairs and Spatial Planning, he said it can, so we will solve it.
Yes, thank you.
