    Apart from being the World Maritime Axis, Chairman of Committee I Fachrul Razi who is also Senator of Electoral District from Aceh also touched on the readiness of Infrastructure and Human Resources in Serambi Mecca Province which must be ready for Geopolitical Development and Transnational Geostrategy with countries in the ASEAN region.

    Senator Fachrul Razi said, a region will have high competitiveness if the economic process in that area does not incur higher costs and should or does not incur higher costs than other regions.
