He asked Seribu Islands Regent, Irmansyah and Seribu Islands Vice Regent, Ismer Harahap to follow up marine ecotourism model strengthening and trash management with Kehati Foundation.
"I want Seribu Islands Regent and Vice Regent to submit routine report," he affirmed.
He also wants collaboration between sectors of Seribu Islands and North Jakarta Governments for mangrove management in Muara Angke.
"This is joint effort. I hope Jakarta Government and Kehati Foundation could make cooperation structure within 30-45 days ahead," he conveyed.
