Vice President Boediono is scheduled to convene a meeting on the development of Papua and West Papua, at his office in Jakarta on Monday.
A number of officials, including Coordinating Economic Minister Hatta Rajasa and Finance Minister Agus Martowardojo, are scheduled to attend, along with representatives from Papua and West Papua provinces, tempointeraktif.com reported Monday.
The meeting is being held to finalize a draft of a presidential regulation on the acceleration of development in Papua and West Papua.
Significant aspects of the draft include its promotion of a cluster-based approach to development, and an increased integration of the activities of the central and regional administrations.
The regulation also aims to establish a special unit to accelerate development in Papua.
The planned regulation is a result of a presentation made by Papua Governor Barnabas Suebu and West Papua Governor Abraham Ocktavianus Atururi at a Cabinet meeting in January.
