(Beritadaerah – Ekonomi Bisnis) Selain beras yang menjadi andalan untuk dikirim keluar Merauke, dengan menggunakan tol laut baik ke Surabaya maupun di lintasan Papua sampai di Jayapura, juga sejumlah komoditi lainnya mulai dapat dikirim dari Merauke.

Kepala Bagian (Kabag) Perekonomian Setda Kabupaten Merauke Drs. Muh. Imam Santoso mengungkapkan, selain beras tersebut, ada ikan, daging, kelapa bulat, kopra, dan potensi lainnya. Untuk Kopra, lanjut dia, pihaknya akan melakukan kerja sama dengan salah satu pengusaha dari Surabaya.

Kopra yang dimaksud adalah kopra putih yang memiliki nilai ekspor ekspor ke India. ‘’Mudah-mudahan tahun ini kita bisa menandatangani MoU dengan pengusaha tersebut dengan BUMD yang kita miliki,’’ katanya.

Ketersediaan Kopra putih ini potensinya sangat besar di Merauke. Karena hampir seluruh kampung tersedia pohon kelapa ini ada. Hanya selama ini belum dikelola secara maksimal. Untuk mendapatkan kopra putih ini, harus dicampur dengan bahan kimia tertentu sesuai standar kesehatan.

Untuk beras sendiri, yang telah dikirim BUMD Aneka Usaha, menurut Imam Santoso, diperkirakan sudah 10 kontainer telah dikirim ke Surabaya. ‘’Itu belum termasuk pengusaha lainnya yang mengirim lewat tol laut,” katanya.

Sedangkan muatan komodiiti untuk tol laut yang melintasi Papua sampai ke Jayapura, yang sudah dikirim adalah beras oleh Bulog sebanyak 500 ton, ‘’Kita juga ada komoditi lainnya seperti kulit gambir dan sejumlah komoditi lainya berbasis ekspor seperti kayu gaharu,’’ terangnya.

Kehadiran tol laut tersebut, sangat membantu petani dalam menggerakkan roda ekonomi masyarakat. ‘’Misalnya beras yang tahun kemarin sulit pmasaran. Tapi dengan adanya tol laut yang biayanya terjangkau tersebut, tentu petani akan diuntungkan, karena beras petani akan terserap untuk dapat dikirim. Dan sekarang bukan hanya lewat tol laut tapi juga sekarang ada penerbangan perintis dari Merauke ke Pegunungan Bintang,’’ pungkas Imam.
