Jakarta (ANTARA News)) - President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) inaugurated the opening of the Consolidation of National Capital Investment Planning and Implementation 2016 (KP3MN 2016) at the State Palace here on Monday.

National Capital Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM) Chief Franky Sibarani remarked after the opening ceremony that the KP3MN has a strategic value.
