Abstract

The geographical configuration of the Republic of Indonesia is an archipelago with most of its inhabitants living in the western region, especially in Java and Sumatra, on the contrary, the population in the eastern region, especially on the island of Papua, is quite low. This results in uneven development and economic access and high price disparities. The Working Cabinet government wants to enable Indonesia to become the World Maritime Fulcrum and use the Sea Toll Program to facilitate the flow of goods from all regions and between small islands in Indonesia. One of the efforts made especially by the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries, is to develop Marine Fisheries Integrated Centres (MFICs) on small islands and boundary areas. The data required in this thesis includes data and documents obtained from related institutions in Indonesia as well as virtual sources. Soft System Methodology (SSM) has been used to process the data. The development of the maritime logistics system is also a provider of regional economic development services in the concept or idea of the maritime axis with the identification of the inner and front regions. In this idea, new economic growth is expected to occur in the front region, where the prerequisites for accessibility and connectivity must be properly fulfilled. Therefore, this research is expected to encourage equitable and economic development in the region, resulting in a balance between the western and eastern regions of Indonesia. Further research is needed, especially in the field of maritime security and protection of the marine environment and sustainability needs to be carried out to support these activities.
