Indonesia and Austria will set up a Joint Working Group for the Development of Infrastructure and Transportation to support Austria’s plan to invest in the mass transportation sector in Indonesia.
“Austria has an integrated transportation system which connects its railway, land and sea transportation. Indonesia expects to make use of Austrian experience and implement it here,” Indonesia’s Transportation minister EE Mangindaan said, after signing an MoU with Austrian Minister of Transportation, Innovation and Technology, Doris Bures.
The minister added that the current infrastructure project which the Indonesian government plans to construct is a railway system in Sumatra and the Kalimantan islands. The railway project, meant mainly for transporting coal from Tanjung Enim to the seaport of Tanjung Api-api in South Sumatra, has long been delayed.
