WPG Update: Indonesia - Relocation of Indonesia’s Capital – Impact and Opportunities

12 Nov 2019 WPG Update

On 16 August 2019, President Joko Widodo formally announced the relocation of Indonesia’s capital from Jakarta to East Kalimantan, on Borneo at an estimated cost of US$33 billion. About 80% of the cost is expected to be funded by private investments and public-private partnerships. In addition, the Indonesian government has also announced a planned investment of approximately US$40 billion to upgrade and modernise Jakarta’s infrastructure.

These twin projects are expected to drive Indonesia’s construction, utilities and finance sectors for the next decade, with investments from both within and outside of Indonesia. In this article, we outline some of the key considerations for investors and companies looking to capitalise on the potential opportunities in these sectors.
