This is The Face of Skouw State Boundary Post, Veranda of Indonesia in The Easternmost Papua


Skouw State Boundary Post in Papua.


Since the beginning of his reign, President Joko Widodo insisted that State Boundary Posts had to reflect pride, nationalism, dignity, and state's self-esteem. He said that the areas which are directly adjacent to neighboring countries should have been able to become a pride for all Indonesians. He did not want the face of border posts to look slum like an animal cage. So far, the border areas are synonymous with backwardness.
Located in remote areas, a border area is such a back door (isolated, shabby, and left behind). In fact, as an area bordering neighboring countries, the border area should be the front door of Indonesia. Under a leadership of Jokowi, the border area is turned into a forward, open, and foremost.
