Jakarta – The delays in the construction process of Marunda Port in Cilincing, North Jakarta, by PT Karya Citra Nusantara (KCN) are considered to be able to disrupt the entry of investors into infrastructure projects in the country.
DPR Commission V member Bambang Haryo Soekartono said that Marunda Port is one of the national strategic projects that should have been completed for a long time, but until now the construction has not been completed.
“The government right now boasts 3 hours completed the permit process but this is a private investor or already have permission but still hampered also investment, this is definitely disrupt investment in the country,” Bambang said in a press release received by Beritasatu.com, Tuesday (11/6 / 2019).
The construction process of the Marunda Port experienced problems after protracted conflicts inside KCN which were joint ventures of PT Karya Tekhnik Utama (KTU) and PT Kawasan Berikat Nusantara (KBN).
The existence of the conflict made the port, which is about 3 kilometers (km) from Tanjung Priok Port, not over.
According to Bambang, the completion of the port construction is one of the failures of the government that wants Indonesia to become a maritime axis.
Bambang also suggested that the government is now looking for markets or markets which later ships carrying bulk cargo such as coal, liquid commodities, could be served in Marunda Port.
“Now the government is looking for the market , so that later when the port has finished all can work effectively,” Bambang said.
