Jokowi to Announce New Indonesia Capital to Replace Jakarta
(Bloomberg) -- Indonesian President Joko Widodo will announce the site of the country’s new capital on Monday, ending months of speculation about the location of the new city to replace Jakarta as the administrative headquarters.The announcement will be broadcast live from 1 p.m. Jakarta on the official YouTube channel of the president’s secretariat. Jokowi, as the president is known, recently sought lawmakers’ approval to move the capital to Kalimantan island after first proposing the relocation in April.Jokowi has displayed an urgency not shown by his predecessors in pressing on with the capital relocation plan, which has been periodically discussed for decades. With the greater Jakarta area, home to about 30 million people, nearing a gridlock and pollution levels reaching unhealthy levels, efforts to decongest the city have made little progress with tens of thousands of cars getting added to the roads every year.The government has said building a new capital will cost about 466 trillion rupiah ($33 billion) and it plans to begin construction from 2021. It may start relocating some offices from 2024 and the project will be financed by the government as well as through private-public partnerships, according to Planning Minister Bambang Brodjonegoro.“We do not want to do this in a rush, but we want to do this as fast as possible,” Jokowi said in the YouTube video posted by his office.To contact the reporter on this story: Tassia Sipahutar in Jakarta at ssipahutar@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Thomas Kutty Abraham at tabraham4@bloomberg.net, Rieka RahadianaFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
