"This can be an opportunity for WEGE to pursue target projects, especially government projects, especially strategic projects, IKN development, and the development of digital-related infrastructure becomes a market opportunity for WEGE because WEGE already has experience in building such infrastructure or buildings," Yudha explained to Kontan, Monday (19/2). 

He continued, from the concession business side, WEGE also targets Unsolicited KPBU, especially in the health and education sectors. Yudha believes this is in line with the government's agenda for the infrastructure sector in 2024.

"For the January 2024 acquisition, WEGE has already secured a contract worth IDR 169.68 billion, consisting of the BMKG InaTews Building and the Modular Office Keet," Yudha explained.
