At the meeting, BPIW’s Hadi Sucahyono talked about the possibility of a special homestay program from public works and public housing ministry. “We can follow the example of the special program made for the ASEAN Games and regulated by the ministry to support the architecture of the archipelago,” said Sucahyono.

“We’re going to conduct a follow-up meeting with housing research and development center (Puskim). The material for archipelago architectural design is already with the public works and public housing ministry but we haven’t organized it yet,” said Thaib. (asw)
