GETNEWS.ID, Dompu – The NTB Governor’s working visit on Sumbawa Island arrived in Dompu District. After launching the Melaju Marine Tourism Village, the Governor together with his wife and entourage met and had a direct dialogue with the residents of Kawo Village, Kilo District, Dompu Regency on Saturday (11/1) on the momentum of prayer in congregation with residents.
Residents on the occasion expressed their aspirations about improving road and telecommunications infrastructure, procuring waste banks, and procuring books to foster interest in reading in the Kiwu Village community. The NTB Assistant Governor for Development Economics, Ridwan Syah who was then in a group with the Governor, explained the steps that the NTB Provincial Government would take.
“For the road, God willing, this year the island of Sumbawa will get a bigger portion of the budget than Lombok Island. Of course, Dompu will also get apart. Regarding waste banks, if indeed waste management is a village priority, for the procurement of garbage cars, “Ridwan Syah explained.
As for telecommunications, Ridwan Syah explained that he would communicate with provider companies, to speed up telecommunications access to NTB free of blank spots. “The provincial government target is zero blank spots. So no area is not covered by an internet connection. If there is an internet connection, God willing needs such as books will soon be fulfilled. So the interest in reading the community will also gradually develop, “he explained.
