In addition, North Maluku provincial administration spokesman Umar Hasan has said in Ternate that broken bridges and roads in Morotai have been mended. Divers accommodations in the form of hostels and procurement of diving equipment have also been made available in a bid to make the international marine event of Sail Morotai a success.
Umar said the local government would also build three docks in Morotai district for the upcoming Sail Morotai 2012. "We will focus on the construction of three docks in Morotai because the new district is located in a border area where Sail Morotai will take place in 2012," Umar Hasan said.
According to him, the new district of Morotai got a special attention from central government. Umar said the construction of three docks in Morotai would receive funds amounting Rp2.1 billion from 2011 regional budget, and also from state budget, focused on supporting the public activity through sea transportation.
The docks will be located at the shipping route of the participants of Sail Morotai from foreign countries. Other supporting infrastructures at Morotai district would be improved for the success of the international marine event.
"Therefore the local government will build three docks namely in Dodola, Posi-Posi, and Bere-Bere," Umar said, adding that the three locations were strategic and representative for the Sail Indonesian participants to visit Morotai.
In addition, he said the docks would be used to support the international marine event of Sail Morotai 2012 and to step up the local community’s economy and welfare.
