INDONESIAN PRESIDENT Joko Widodo aims to complete 38 out of 222 projects listed on the National Strategic Projects (PSN) list by the third quarter of 2019, when the president ends his five-year term.

The government has completed 30 PSN projects – 20 projects in 2016 and 20 in 2017. Committee for Acceleration of Priority Infrastructure Delivery (KPPIP) Chairman Wahyu Utomo said on Thursday that of the 38 projects, 13 of which would be completed this year, while 25 other projects would be completed in 2019.

“In 2018, we expect to complete 13 projects with total investment of 46.78 trillion rupiah (US$3.41 billion), while the 25 others with total investment of 118.88 trillion rupiah will be completed in 2019,” he said during a press conference in Jakarta

The KPPIP announced earlier that the government would carry on with the 222 projects on the PSN list, after removing 14 projects from the list. In addition to the projects, the government also has three other programs.

Wahyu explained that 66 out of 222 projects and two out of three programs -- electricity programs and economic equality program – were in the completion process, while 109 projects and one program in the airplane industry were under construction, he added.

“Six projects are being tendered, while the 28 other projects are in the preparation stage,” Wahyu said.
