On the other hand, because of the strategic nature of the Riau Islands Province, it needs to be supported by good connectivity, especially sea connectivity. Therefore, a number of ports and ferry boats are built which are a priority so as to reduce intra-regional and inter-regional disparities. Batam as a city that also borders directly with neighboring Singapore is used as an industrial, tourism, shipping and service area.

Whereas in the field of infrastructure, especially related to infrastructure, the Provincial Government of Riau Islands and PT.
