Bandung, W Java (ANTARA News) - The West Java Provincial Administration will offer 25 infrastructure projects, worth approximately Rp280 trillion (about US$18,418,680,000), at the Indonesia Infrastructure Week (IIW) held at the Jakarta International Expo from Oct 31 to Nov 2, 2018.

The Head of West Java Province`s One-Stop Integrated Services and Investment Office, Dadang Mohamad, here Wednesday said that some large infrastructure projects were offered by the West Java Provincial Administration, including business opportunities at the West Java International Airport (BJIB) and an Aero city at BIJB in Majalengka District and the Bandung Metropolitan Urban Railways project in Bandung Raya area.

Other projects are accessibility to BIJB in the form of railways and toll road constructions, Legok Nangka waste management in Bandung District, and mini hydro power plant construction in Pasir Jambu and Kertamukti.

According to Mohamad, the infrastructure projects are offered at the exhibition, which was opened by Indonesian President Joko Widodo.

West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil hoped that the infrastructure developments will increase interconnection in West Java, from north to south, from west to east, and from villages to cities, as well as increase access to tourist sites in the province.

"The construction projects include reactivation of railways, constructions of airports, seaports, reservoirs, drinking water management systems, toll roads, and non-toll roads," he remarked.

He added that the infrastructure projects could not be fully funded by the West Java Provincial Administration.

The projects require collaboration by the central government, local administrations, and the participation of state-owned enterprises, regional-owned enterprises, and the private sectors.

"Collaboration plus innovation are the keys to achieving West Java`s development program," he added.

In order to realize the infrastructure development, the West Java Province`s One-Stop Integrated Services and Investment Office has collaborated with the Provincial Transportation Office and the Provincial Environment Office, as well as Bank Indonesia of West Java.

The West Java Provincial Administration also cooperates with regional-owned enterprises, namely, PT. BIJB, and PT. Tirta Gemah Ripah.
