Minister: There is No Reason to Stop Reclamation of Islet G

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan said that there is no reason to stop reclamation of Islet G off the North Jakarta coast. “Islet G will be finalized next week,” he said on September 13 in Jakarta.

Luhut said that all requirements to proceed with the project have already been met. “On the issue of the NJOP [taxable value of property], you can ask the local administration,” he said.

Moreover, 11 items required to develop Islets C and D have also been completed. Therefore, he said that there is no more reason not to continue the reclamation of the artificial islets.

Luhut went on to say that the Jakarta administration will receive 15 percent compensation in the Jakarta Bay reclamation project. The value is estimated at Rp77.8 trillion. “The money will be used to build the Giant Sea Wall,” he said.

He said that the construction of the 20.1-kilometer wall must not be delayed, citing increased land subsidence in Jakarta.

Minister Luhut said that he will take into consideration all suggestions from external parties on the Jakarta Bay reclamation project. He added that everyone can now understand the government’s decision to continue with the development project. Moreover, he stressed that the government did not make any deal with conglomerates.
