Indonesia goverment has allocated huge funds for development of infrastructure and transportation facilities, one of them is railway transport mode. It aims to boost economic growth and equality throughout Indonesia.
Railway transportation mode is the most economical, environmentally, efficient and effective mode for mass transport. Currently, Indonesia only has 4,069.4 km of active railway line of active and 3,708 km non-active. The government is targeting to build a new rail until 3,258 km.
The mega project will be implemented within 5 years until 2019 and spent IDR 105.6 trillion or USD 8 bbillion. This giant fund would be used to build 3,258 km railway line in a few strategic areas, increasing the number of trains and the construction of new stations. The rail transport mode is aims to improve the logistics services, increase revenues from tourism, the effectiveness of the distribution of goods, energy efficiency and help solve the problem of congestion.
The government’s policy will bring a positive trend for the global railway industry. The government is requiring goods and services in the construction of this railway infrastructure. Of course this brings good news for railway industry’s players to market their products in Indonesia. Reflecting the trend and huge demand for railway infrastructure in Indonesia, we decide to present RailwayTech Indonesia 2018 .
