Where the Marina Muara Padang port will be a port supporting Mentawai SEZ activities because it is close to the central government of the Province and the Padang City, said Deputy Governor of West Sumatra Nasrul Abit on the sidelines of the review of the Marina Center location on July 3, 2020.
The Deputy Governor expressed his gratitude to the Deputy for Infrastructure of coordination ministry for Maritime for reviewing the implementation, in fact, all plans had not yet been completed. Deputy for Infrastructure of coordination ministry for Maritime would soon build the Padang estuary.
"For this reason, we have prepared all of these permits, hopefully in this month all forms of licensing will be completed," hoped Nasrul Abit.
In this case, he added, he did not want to violate the rules regarding the permit issue from BWS V and also had to wait for the AMDAL and IMB to wait for everything to be finished. Not all permitting processes can be processed in parallel, everything there will go according to the process.
"Just waiting for the tender, if there are problems occur, of course the province will support this. Including the Mentawai SEZ to be processed," Nasrul Abit said
He explained, in fact, investor already exists, an airport had also been prepared, although there were 2600 areas, now the 400 hectares outside the airport had agreed.
They will do it faster because it will be traced later, both National and International.
"So the airport will be made with a length of 2500 which means it can be used for an international airport," said the Deputy Governor.
While Deputy for Infrastructure of coordination ministry for Maritime Affairs Ridwan Jamaludin also said that the highest program in West Sumatra is tourism and the tourist class object is Mentawai.
"For that we need to prepare a nuance of the sea, nuances of maritime in Padang City, and the government also supports it. So that our hope is beautiful if the maritime center has been built, it can be used as the port and also to be a good example for various maritime-based communities, "said Ridwan Jamaluddin.
