d dar­mono, founder and ceo of pt jababeka, Tbk, re­vealed his plan to build a toll road from Jakarta to Tan­jung Le­sung, which is re­port­edly 150 kilo­me­tres long and will take roughly three years to com­plete. In ad­di­tion to the toll road, PT Jababeka has also taken on a role of build­ing a city in Tan­jung Le­sung with the aim of at­tract­ing tourists and in­vestors into the area, mak­ing it an in­ter­na­tional hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion.

Pres­i­dent Joko Wi­dodo inau­gu­rated the con­struc­tion of the projects on Fe­bru­ary 23, 2015. Myr­iad ben­e­fits, such as res­i­dency, ci­ti­zen­ship, and duty-free shop­ping, will also be avail­able to in­vestors and tourists flock­ing to the city in the fu­ture. With the cap­i­tal in­vest­ment worth $200 mil­lion, Dar­mono be­lieves that the ROI will be high, and that the projects will be ben­e­fi­cial for In­done­sia in the long run.
