FRENCH Government provides assistance to the Government of Central Sulawesi Province worth 1 million euros or around Rp. 16 billion. The assistance is intended for planting mangroves on the coast of Palu Bay as well as the economic recovery of fishermen after the earthquake, tsunami and liquefaction.

The assistance was carried out in the form of the signing of cooperation between two NGOs from France and Indonesia which will carry out the French assistance project at the Central Sulawesi Governor's Office in Palu on Tuesday (05/07/2019).

The signing was witnessed by the Governor of Central Sulawesi, Longki Djanggola and the French Ambassador to Indonesia Jean Charles Berthonnet, and members of the French Parliament Anne Genetet.
"Such a large amount of funds for planting mangroves along Palu Bay as well as assistance for fishermen as many as 650 boats. The goal is to empower the fishermen's economy," said French Ambassador, Jean Charles Berthonnet.

Jean Charles Berthonnet, admitted, was proud to come back to Palu to see the condition of the community after the earthquake. French government itself helped provide assistance for the economic recovery of citizens and ecology-based city development.

Previously, he explained,  French government had provided clean water assistance to the community.

Governor of Central Sulawesi, Longki Djanggola, said that planting mangroves and empowering the economy of the community has indeed become the focus of the current government. The government is said to be monitoring so that assistance does not overlap with the action plan activities that the government will do.

"We hope that in the future French Government can help housing for fishing communities," Longki Djanggola said.

According to Longki, the economic empowerment assistance of fishing communities will be handed over directly to the community based on studies and observations that have been carried out by French NGOs. **
