Parhan Ali Bachsin, Regent of West Bangka and Ridwan Gunawan Samsudin, Head of Development Planning Agency and Regional Development of West Bangka

 

Through this REDS Program, we learned so many things and we would like to implement two policies at home:

 

  1. Strengthening research and development in order to lay a solid foundation in the formulation of our local development policies and programs.

  2. Applying one vision, one team, and one voice principle in planning, implementation, evaluation of our local development.

 

Demianus Katiop, Assistant I of Government, Mimika Regency

 

Through this REDS Program, I learned at least two lessons:

 

  1. The system and coordination of planning, implementation, and supervision of city and region development is very good.

  2. The city and regional facilities and infrastructure and the functioning of government, from the lowest to the highest level in California are well run. We do not have such experience in Indonesia.

 

Kristian Viktor Kabei, member of Mimika Assembly

 

I learned two important things in this Program.

 

  1. To work on the first building block of local and regional development, that is the institutional foundation with "one vision, one team, and one voice” principle.

  2. To help the development of partnership between local government and private sector in promoting the business economic development of Mimika.

 

Robby Omaleng, member of Mimika Assembly

 

  1. This Program increases my understanding of the importance of cooperation in the planning and implementation of local and regional development programs.

  2. I hope the REDS program can assist the economic development throughout Papua especially in helping the frameworks on the partnerships of the stakeholders in local and regional developments of Papua.

 

Michael Gomar, Head of Community Empowerment Agency, Mimika Regency

 

I learned two lessons:

  1. The importance of good coordination and cooperation in the planning, implementation and monitoring of local and regional development.

  2. The importance of the sustainable strategic development planning and the joint commitment of the stakeholders to execute it.

 

Slamet Sutejo, Head of Government Section, Mimika Regency

 

Two lessons that are stuck in my mind:

  1. Government as a regulator must be proactive and adaptive in anticipating the dynamic progress and global change.

  2. Local and regional development policies must be based on good quality data and research.

 

George Deda, member of Mimika Assembly

 

  1. I now understand how useful it is to have database of population and the wide-economy to local governments in managing the development.

  2. A comparative study like this needs to be held more in order to assist local and regional governments in Indonesia in managing their economic development.
