President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) has promised to resolve the electricity problems that Bangka Belitung has been facing since recent years.
“I will instruct the relevant ministries to repair steam-fueled power plant (PLTU) within six months. In addition we will build a new steam-fueled power plant,” Presiden said here on Sunday.
Presiden Jokowi said he will instruct the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources and the Minister of State Owned Enterprises to check the electricity problems in Bangka Belitung directly.
“Next week the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources and the Minister of State Owned Enterprises will come to Bangka Belitung and check directly the electricity problems in the field,” Jokowi said.
