Indonesia Transport

Road, port, airport and rail upgrades are a critical priority for the government of President Joko Widodo, with his administration having overseen an infrastructure and transport spending surge since taking office in 2014. The main aims of this increased resource allotment are to lower transportation costs – which are among the highest in South-east Asia – reduce congestion, and improve the sector’s business and investment climate. Progress is being made on all fronts, and infrastructure spending is forecast to hit a record high in 2017.

This chapter contains interviews with Elvyn Masassya, President Director, Pelabuhan Indonesia II; and William Sabandar, President Director, Mass Rapid Transit Jakarta.
