Jokowi Hands Out Land Certificate in Kalimantan

TEMPO.CO, Balikpapan - President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) personally distributed 1,535 land ownership certificates for residents in North and East Kalimantan. This is the government’s commitment to providing its people the legal certainty of land ownership. 

Jokowi revealed that many lands in Indonesia are not equipped with certificates of ownership. Of the 126 hectares of land, only 46 hectares of lands own the legal certificate.

Currently, there is only 33 percent certified area in Indonesia, Jokowi stated. Therefore, he added, the Ministry of Agriculture and Spatial Planning need to work hard in certifying the rest of uncertified areas.

“It needs a day and night’s worth of hard work to complete the process,” said the former Mayor of Surakarta and Governor of Jakarta

President Jokowi acknowledges the importance of land certification for the welfare of Indonesian people, which is usually used as a guarantee in applying for mortgages.

This is the second time Jokowi distributed land certificates in Kalimantan. A year ago, he handed over 1,712 certificates for the North and East Kalimantan residents. 

The government is determined to complete this process that spans a total of 120 million hectares by 2025.
