Speaking to the team from ASEAN here on Friday, Permana described South Sumatra as rich in natural resources which are yet to be managed optimally.
"The province is rich in coal, geothermal energy, gas, rubber, oil palms and other natural resources for investors," Permana noted, adding that South Sumatra also contains many historical sites closely related to the Kingdom of Sriwijaya.
In an effort to promote the Sriwijaya Kingdom, Permana remarked that his party plans to build a small museum at Benteng Koto Besak for visitors who want to learn more about the kingdom.
