PON XX Papua held in four clusters; Jayapura City, Jayapura Regency, Mimika Regency and Merauke Regency will start from 2-15 October 2021. In order for Menpora Amali to easily monitor the conditions of XX PON implementation, he will also have an office in Papua during the PON implementation.
“Well, to make it easier to coordinate and communicate with the PB PON there, my friends and I will have an office from Papua. My friends in the cluster will also take turns, but I will be there during the PON to make sure that everything goes smoothly. “We will go around to several match venues, both in the Regency and City, Jayapura, Merauke Regency and Mimika Regency, “said Menpora Amali.
Menpora said that before having an office in Papua, he had asked President Joko Widodo for permission. So that if there is a limited meeting, the Minister of Youth and Sports can still attend via virtual.
“I’ve also asked the President for permission, I’m in Papua until the PON is over. Later if there is a meeting I can still attend via zoom, I also did that during my visit to Jayapura,” he said.
The Minister of Youth and Sports hopes that there will be no obstacles in this preparation. And the existing contingent can be served well. “Besides that, the progress has been going well. As has been done by friends from the Ministry of Health and BNPB. And the acceleration of vaccination until now has been carried out,” he added.
