"The government's development has been proven by increasing container flows to NTT and NTB by 30%." said President Director of PT Pelindo Marine Service (PMS), Putut Sri Muljanto in Jokowinomics book review this morning at Hotel Singgasana Surabaya.
Increase number of container throughput is the result of the development in infrastructure sector, especially in Eastern part of Indonesia. It is added that the Jokowinomics deep-sea toll program currently faces challenges from the land transportation sector which is considered to be cheaper and more flexible. In addition, Putut is proposing that the sea toll road can be re-examined and only be focused in areas where the private sector has not participated yet so that the market mechanism can be achieved.
The event which was also attended by the Board of Directors of Pelindo III Group subsidiaries and industry players in East Java aims to see how far the role of President Jokowi's policy in improving the economy and the challenges faced in implementing its implementation.
