Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan said infrastructure development was the key to driving Indonesia's economic transformation.
Business actors can reduce shipping costs, he said, when using infrastructure that has been prepared by the government and ensure that the flow of goods can be delivered more quickly and efficiently.
"We can reduce logistics transportation costs more objectively," said Luhut at the Merdeka Barat 9 Media Forum Discussion entitled "Kaleidoscope 2020: State Commitment to Continue Infrastructure Development Amid the Covid-19 Pandemic" virtually in Jakarta, Tuesday (12/29 / 2020).
For example, Patimban Port in West Java, which now has direct access to the surrounding economic centers.
The mileage required to reach these areas could be cut significantly. As a result, the logistics costs incurred can be reduced.
It is projected that infrastructure access built by the government around Patimban Port has great potential to increase economic growth in 10 industrial areas.
