“We will support STPark through the development of infrastructures under a government-to-business cooperation (KPBU) scheme. The West Nusa Tenggara provincial government will be responsible for it. We will start it with a study to make sure the mechanism,” Bappenas Deputy for Development Rudy Soeprihadi Prawiradinata said at a meeting discussing strategic issues related to development in the provinces of Bali, West Nusa Tenggara and East Nusa Tenggara here on Saturday.
Under the KPBU scheme the government will cooperate with corporate bodies in developing public infrastructures based on the specifications approved by the relevant minister, head of institution, regional head and state-owned company.
West Nusa Tenggara Governor Zulkieflimansyah said STIPark will function not only as a means to develop incubation business but also to accelerate the process of grooming youths to become entrepreneurs and deepen their knowledge of industrialization.
“The industrialization is not identical to large factory. But it is the way to deepen knowledge of structure to give added value to farm commodities instead of exporting them in unprocessed form,” he said.
Therefore, not only Java but also West Nusa Tenggara will be home to creative industry, he said.
