“JABODETABEK MPA STRATEGIC PLAN” MASTER PLAN FOR ESTABLISHING METROPOLITAN PRIORITY AREA FOR INVESTMENT AND INDUSTRY IN JABODETABEK AREA IN THE REPUBLIC OF INDONESIA
Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), together with the Indonesian government, is trying to establish a new masterplan for Greater Jakarta (JABODETABEK). The plan is to revitalize the area so it can be more appealing and attracting investors and developers alike by accelerating industrial development and generating a high-level investment and business environment. Unfortunately, the condition that is happening right now is infrastructure, and city conditions are not catching up with the revitalization plan and the rapid growth of economics in the country. Therefore, a new masterplan should be conducted in order to develop the area further and get away from problems and disadvantages.
Among other Metropolitan Priority Area (MPA) in the rest of the country, the Metropolitan Priority Area for Greater Jakarta (JABODETABEK) is holding the critical economic growth for Indonesia since it consists of Jakarta, Bogor, Depok, Tangerang and Bekasi which are the principal cities. However, these cities are still lacking in terms of infrastructure and suffer from unresolved issues such as public safety and social conditions, law transparency, underdeveloped infrastructure, and lack of staff resources.
Therefore, Indonesian authority, together with Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) are trying to propose various masterplans and infrastructure development plans in order to boost the economy, infrastructure, and solving numerous issues in different aspects. This 2012 Plan of Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) report is one of the attempts, considering the fact that JICA has helped Indonesia on numerous different projects, including the development, funding, and construction of Jakarta Mass Rapid Transit (MRT).
