UAE takes part in South Sumatra port project

The Jakarta Post

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has agreed to participate in a massive project of constructing ports, double-track railways, power plants and supporting infrastructure in South Sumatra.

As per an agreement signed Monday, Ras Al-Khaimah Investment Authority (Rakia) -- an investment body owned by the UAE government, will invest US$1.5 billion in the project that in total could cost around $9 billion.

The Rakia fund in particular would be used to construct a 90-kilometer two-lane railway from Tanjung Enim to Tanjung Api-Api and other supporting infrastructure, according to Khater Massaad, Rakia president director.

Tanjung Api-Api is where the port will be located.

"We are interested to take part of this big development project because of the natural resources like coal, gas and oil, that the province has," added Khater.

South Sumatra Governor Syahrial Desman welcomed the agreement as the project was so massive that the province could not cover all the costs by itself.

"We need at least Rp 80 trillion funds for this project. We can't just count on our regional budget, which is only Rp 2.5 trillion for this year," Syahrial said.

"Currently, we have 12 domestic and foreign investors, including the UAE, who have pledged to participate in our infrastructure development plan," he said, without elaborating.

South Sumatra is the host to one of the country's large coal reserves and agri-business operations. (rff)
