Sail Raja Ampat 2014 Set to Kick Off in West Papua, Indonesia



Raja Ampat, West Papua, Indonesia, May 26, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - The Peak event of Sail Raja Ampat 2014 will be held on June 21, on Waisai Torang Cinta (WTC) beach, Waisai City, Raja Ampat, West Papua. Sail Raja Ampat is the sixth event of the Sail series, following Sail Bunaken in 2009, Sail Banda in 2010, Sail Wakatobi-Belitung in 2011, Sail Morotai in 2012, and Sail Komodo in 2013.

Sail Raja Ampat will stop over in a number of spots including Waisai Torang Cinta beach, Rumah Pintar, the Office of National Organizing Committee Secretariat, The Fishery Academy of Sorong, and the Grouper Fish Culture Center. "The Sail series aim to increase the regional economy development on the island and remote areas, particularly through the marine tourism sector," explained the Minister.

Sharif C. Sutardjo, the Minister of Marine Affairs and Fisheries, and chairman of the national organizing committee of the Event, states that the Sail is a pillar of the Masterplan for Acceleration and Expansion of Indonesia's Economic Development (MP3EI), an ambitious plan by the Indonesian government to accelerate the realization of becoming a developed country of which the fruits and prosperity will be enjoyed equally among the people.

In addition to aiming to accelerate the economic development of the island and remote areas, the Sail series is also established to reaffirm the identity of the Indonesian nation as a maritime nation living on an archipelago. Sail Raja Ampat will bring this year's theme 'Building the Maritime, Bringing Raja Ampat to World Tourism'.

The Government of Indonesia has already organized the coordination meeting with all of the associated ministries, Indonesian Army (TNI), the local governments, and state-owned enterprises and regionally owned enterprises. To ensure the success of the entire Event, all of the participating ministries/institutions have allocated the budget to support each ministry's activities on the Event.

The participating ministries include the Coordinating Minister for People Welfare, the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries, Ministry of Transportation, Ministry of Public Work, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of State-owned Company, Ministry of Defense, Ministry of Home Affairs, Ministry of Public Housing, Ministry of Social Services, and Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy.

It is always proven that all of the Sail series give a great, significant impact to the regional economy, especially for the coastal and small islands' people. For example, Manado, the capital of North Sulawesi which was the host city of Sail Bunaken 2009, has become a business center on the eastern part of Indonesia ever since.

A number of activities are already included in the agenda of Sail Raja Ampat, such as the Flag Raising Ceremony of the 69th Independence Day of Republic of Indonesia in one of the outermost islands, social and health services, the Sail of Lingkar Nusantara IV, the Marine Expedition Rally, Yacht Rally, and the national and international seminaries, to name a few.

About Sail Raja Ampat 2014

Sail Raja Ampat 2014 is dedicated to the development of ecotourism in a region that has been proposed as a World Herritage Site by the Government of Indonesia.

Raja Ampat has been threatened with excessive natural resource exploitation; to develop the region along the lines of a 'Blue Economy', an ecosystem-based management has been implemented to protect biodiversity, sustainable fisheries, continuity of the ecotourism potential, and sustainable business development alternatives for the inhabitants along the seascape.

In addition to welfare improvement through building the capacity of local residents in Raja Ampat Regency, ecotourism hopes to minimize the threat on community sustainable income and ecosystems in the coral reefs of the region. For more information, please visit www.gorajaampat.com.
