54 Years of Freeport Indonesia: For You Indonesia
07 April 2021
Let’s look back on the 54 years of journey that PT Freeport Indonesia has made.
April 7, 1967, marked a substantial milestone for PT Freeport Indonesia when the company and the Government of Indonesia signed the first Contract of Work that officiated company’s operations in Papua.
PTFI celebrates its 54th anniversary as a proud company. To commemorate another milestone, PTFI leaderships not only wish great success for the company. They also celebrate it in person with employees in Tembagapura.
PTFI Leaders Served Lunch at Melati Messhall
Few minutes before lunchtime at Melati Messhall, several company leaders were getting ready – putting on a white apron and wearing chef hat – and standing behind the food bar to serve the employees some special meals that special day.
“We came here in person today to serve you all; let’s continue to work safely and follow our SINCERE values to achieve our safe production goals.” said Tony Wenas, PTFI President Director.
The leaders also served slices of a special birthday cake to the employees to enjoy together. Everyone mingled and happily enjoyed the special lunch.
PTFI Virtual Anniversary Celebration
Employees in Jobsite and Jakarta celebrated PTFI’s anniversary through a virtual talk show this year. Yuliana Fonataba moderated the talk show attended by Tony Wenas; Adrianto Machribie, Commissioner of PT Freeport Indonesia; Orias Petrus Moedak, MIND ID Group CEO and Yustinus Prastowo, a Finance Minister special staff.
Bagimu Indonesia or For you, Indonesia was the theme for PTFI’s 54th anniversary. Despite having been going through so many hurdles from security, regulatory, social and environmental issues, PTFI stands strong, facing all the challenges.
“We should be proud that despite all the challenges that we had, we remain and are going strong. It shows that the more we advance, the more we contribute to the nation.” Wenas said.
Hundreds of employees joined the talk show virtually. The topic of the talk show had them realized how they had made a difference for Papua and Indonesia through the dedication and hard work they do each and every day.
