Regent of Mandailing Natal Drs. Dahlan Hasan Nasution said that every developing Regency/City must support investment in its area because if you only expect the Regional Revenue and Expenditure Budget (APBD) it will not be enough to prosper the community.
This was conveyed by Dahlan Hasan Nasution when receiving the management of the gold mining company PT Sorikmas Mining at the Nur Ala Nur Grand Mosque complex, Panyabungan, after Friday prayers, Friday, March 19, 2021.
The External Relations Manager of PT Sorikmas Mining Ade Hendi was present along with a number of company staff.
The Regent said, If we only hope from the APBD, our area will not develop. Regional budget allocations are not sufficient for the welfare of the community. Of course, we hope that the investment that goes into the solution area will help the welfare of the community, and we must protect the investment together.
Dahlan Nasution explained, Madina Regency has rich natural resource potential compared to other regions in North Sumatra. This potential needs to be managed properly so as to produce welfare for the people.
On the other hand, the area known as the slogan Bumi Gordang Sambilan also has a rich variety of arts and cultural customs.
“Our area is multi-ethnic which has various customs, for example Mandailing Jae and Mandailing Julu, Coastal, Javanese, Minang, and Toba. This is also a potential that can generate money if there is synergy between the government and the private sector in developing it. Now we have Bagas Godang. This is a place to display the cultural customs that exist in our area. It is time for us to rise up with all the potential that our region has,” he explained.
Regent Dahlan Nasution strongly supports the resumption of the mining business of PT. Sorikmas Mining with a note that it must be able to bring blessings and prosperity to the people.
“We support investment in our area, we will make it easier for all permits as long as they are in accordance with regulations and laws and regulations, which of course are all for the welfare of the community,” he said.
