Jayapura, Jubi – A Papuan woman trader Asna Inggamer said what Papuan traders need right now is capacity building training from both provincial and municipal governments.
“We hope the relevant offices in municipal and provincial governments to consider that we seek for economic development training as they promised earlier. We have settled in this market for months but no training so far,” Mrs Inggamer told Jubi on Tuesday (26/6/2018).
According to her, Jayapura Mayor has declared that the market was intended to anticipate the National Sports Week XX that would be held in Papua in 2020 as it would sell souvenirs, traditional accessories and so on. However, no action was taken by the government to set up the traders.
“We also expect the government to help build food stalls on the third floor, where it was intended. Because it is a new market, we cannot use wood tables. If so, these should be identical in type and shape for a neat look,” she said.
The Coordinator of the Solidarity of Papuan Traders (Solpap) Franky Warer confirmed that the indigenous woman traders need a scale up in economic practice. “These women indeed need to have regular training. We unceasingly talk to relevant stakeholders about this but no further action,” he said. (*)
