The minister also shared that Indonesia’s new capital is projected to be a smart and eco-friendly city.
Moreover, since there has yet to be a legal umbrella and regulations on the project, the Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing can only do so much in moving the project forward.
Indonesia’s Coordinating Minister of Economic Affairs Luhut Panjaitan said that the government remains focused on mitigating the coronavirus pandemic for now.
Luhut admitted that the progress of Indonesia’s new capital thus far is still minimal and that even President Jokowi has not conducted further evaluations.
Jokowi offered five reasons behind the groundbreaking plans.
Positioning Indonesia’s new capital in Kalimantan is part of Jokowi’s plans to accomplish more equitable growth.
Jakarta and the Java islands overly dominate the country in terms of population density and economic contribution.
Thus the need to position Indonesia’s new capital outside of Java, according to Jokowi.
