President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) and First Lady Iriana Joko Widodo inspected the progress of construction work at the Domine Eduard Osok Airport project in Sorong, West Papua Province.
"I have checked it, and 99 percent of it is complete," President Jokowi said at the airport.

Jokowi then proceeded to Sorong after visiting the Nduga district. From Sorong, he was scheduled to visit the Raja Ampat District, West Papua. 

The head of state was accompanied by Transportation Minister, Ignasius Jonan and West Papua Governor, Abraham Octavianus Atururi.

The Sorong airport project is expected to cost Rp239 billion, and the budget for 2015 totaled Rp170 billion.

The airport is expected to have a passenger capacity of 2.4 million annually, up from 700 thousand passengers at present.

Jokowi hoped the airport would be completed in February 2016.

He had earlier inspected the Agats road construction project located in Nduga District, Papua Province.

The head of state left for Timika, Mimika District, Papua, on Thursday morning by an Indonesian Air Force Hercules aircraft, after staying overnight in Wamena, Jayawijaya District, Papua.

From Nduga, Jokowi will proceed to Raja Ampat District, West Papua Province, to see a grouper nursery project located in the Waisai tourism port.
