KONTAN.CO.ID - JAKARTA. State-owned Enterprises Minister Rini Soemarno and Jakarta Deputy Governor Sandiaga Uno met on Monday to discuss the construction of transit oriented development (TOD) projects to provide residences near MRT stations.
“We have discussed the possibility of cooperation between state-owned enterprises [SOEs] and city-owned enterprises [COEs],” said Rini after having breakfast with Sandiaga in Jakarta as reported by kompas.com.
Space would be provided in TODs for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) and cooperatives to open businesses, she added.
Rini said she had also discussed with Sandiaga the development of urban infrastructure, particularly transportation infrastructure in Jakarta, including the renovation of railway stations.
Meanwhile, Sandiaga said the city administration and SOEs Ministry had discussed several ways the plan could be implemented.
“There are a number of projects that will be implemented in the near future to accelerate development in Jakarta that could trigger economic growth and create jobs,” Sandiaga said.
Among topics discussed was a TOD project at the under-construction Tanjung Barat Station in South Jakarta, Sandiaga added.
The TOD at Tanjung Barat Station is being developed on 1.5 hectares. The project, which is expected to be completed in 2019, will see the construction of 1,232 apartments, 415 of which will be sold commercially, while the others would be allocated to low-income people. (bbn)
