TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Japan, Britain, and South Korea have pledged their commitment to developing the Jakarta MRT. Three different agreements were signed on Monday, November 14, during the sidelines of the G20 Summit in Bali.

The first is a memorandum of cooperation (MoC) between the governments of Indonesia and Japan for the continuation of the construction of the Jakarta MRT's East-West corridor, which covers the Kalideres-Ujung Menteng line.

The second agreement is a letter of intent (LoI) between the British and Indonesian governments for the development of the Jakarta MRT.

The third is a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between the governments of Indonesia and South Korea on the construction of Jakarta MRT's Phase 4 corridor, the Fatmawati-Kampung Rambutan line.

"On behalf of PT MRT Jakarta (Perseroda), I express my deepest gratitude to the Central Government and DKI Jakarta Province for their full support in the development of MRT Jakarta," the company's president director Tuhiyat said in a written statement, Tuesday, November 15.

Meanwhile, Jakarta's acting governor Heru Budi Hartono hopes that the MRT development project will be carried out properly and on time. That way, more people would prefer public transportation to personal vehicles, thus supporting a sustainable environment.

Minister of Transportation Budi Karya Sumadi, who was present at the agreements' signing ceremonies, said that the meetings held on the sidelines of the G20 has been optimally used to establish partnerships and cooperations with other countries for infrastructure development. This is important in the midst of budget constraints.

"Today, Jakarta is seen as a city that is quite representative for the pilot development of urban mass transportation," Budi Karya said.
