Jokowi, Jinping witness signing of three agreements
Beijing | Sun, May 14, 2017 | 10:11 pm



Quote:
President Joko Widodo (Jokowi), on a working visit to China, met with President Xi Jinping here on Sunday discussing promotion of bilateral economic cooperation, and witnessed the signing of three cooperation agreements between the two countries.

"On this good opportunity I would like to make use of the occasion of attending the summit meeting here of Belt and Road Forum this week to create a fresh momentum mainly for Chinese-Indonesian cooperation in the framework of One Belt One Road (OBOR)," Jokowi said at the meeting with Xi Jinping at the building of Great Hall of the People, here.

Jokowi was at the head of a strong delegation of 11 cabinet ministers who take active participation in the summit meeting on New Silk Road cooperation.

He said he hoped the Belt and Road Initiative could strengthen economic cooperation between Indonesia and China .

"In this connection I would like to specially invite the government of President Xi to cooperate with the Indonesian government in three mega projects," he said.

The mega projects Jokowi referred to are integrated economic corridor, connectivity, industry and tourism in North Sumatra such as Kuala Tanjung port facilities and access road from Medan up to Sibolga, highway and railway infrastructure of Bitung-Manado-Gorontalo and seaport and airport in North Sulawesi, and energy project including power generating plant in North Kalimantan.

At the meeting, Jokowi and Xi Jinping witnessed the signing of three agreements between the two countries - first on implementation of comprehensive strategic partnership between the two countries in 2017-2021 signed by Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi and her Chinese counterpart Wang Yi, second on economic and technical cooperation signed by Minister for National Development Planning Bambang Brodjonegoro and his Chinese Trade Minister Zhong Shan, and the third on cooperation in facility of Jakarta-Bandung speed railway project signed by Chief Executive of PT KCIC Hanggoro and Chief Executive China National Development Bank Hu Huaibang with cooperation commitment of US$4.498 billion.

==========


  • China development bank disburse its US$4.498 billion loan for Indonesia’s high-speed railway project

  • The loan accounts for 75 percent of the total amount of US$6 billion required for the Jakarta-Bandung train project.

  • The remaining 25 percent of the Rp 6 billion will come from Kereta Cepat Indonesia China (KCIC), a new enterprise jointly owned by Indonesia’s state construction firm PT Wijaya (60%) and China Railway International (40%).

  • Construction is ready to roll as soon as this month, as President Joko Widodo's administration has started seizing land for the efforts to meet CDB's conditions for funding.

Indonesia considers China funding for Japan-backed Jakarta-Surabaya high-speed rail: Report

http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/...akarta-9008570

JAKARTA: Indonesia is now looking at China, to fund a Japan-backed high-speed railway after higher costs threatened to undermine the project's feasibility, according to Indonesia's Coordinating Maritime Affairs Minister Luhut Pandjaitan, reported the Jakarta Post on Wednesday (Jul 6).

The statement comes months after both President Joko Widodo and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe discussed how to get the project, worth Rp 102 trillion (US$7.66 billion), started.

Luhut said the existing track did not have the infrastructure needed to support newer and faster trains, according to the Jakarta Post. Upgrading the existing tracks would result in a surge in costs, he added.

"With more than 100 turns [in the track], the cost can go up. But we also need to explore whether we need to build a new track."

The cost of the new elevated tracks could increase five-fold from the original cost of Rp 102 trillion.

Despite the large costs, the new track may also struggle to compete as Surabaya's transport infrastructure improves with toll roads and air transportation.

When asked if Japan would still be guaranteed the project despite the higher cost, Luhut said that he would consider the country with the cheapest funding.

"If we can secure cheaper funding, then the burden for the state would be minimal," he said.

China has also expressed interest in the project and according to Luhut, both China and Japan are being considered, the report said.

Indonesia is also seeking financial support for the project from the private sector, according to the Post.

“We will see if it will be [financed through] loans or B2B [business to business],” said Transportation Minister Budi Karya Sumadi.

He added that construction is expected to begin in 2020, the report said.

Meanwhile, the deputy chief of mission at the Japanese Embassy in Jakarta, Kozo Honsei, said that he "did not know 'to what extent Luhut referred to the new track'" as Japan's initial proposal was only to upgrade the existing Jakarta-Surabaya railway.

However, Honsei maintained that both Jokowi and Abe were "committed to the project".

First tunnel project of Indonesia's Jakarta-Bandung high-speed railway launched

http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/20..._136447483.htm


WALINI, Indonesia, July 16 (Xinhua) -- The Walini tunnel project of the High-Speed Railway (HSR) linking Indonesian capital Jakarta to Bandung was launched here Saturday.

Indonesian State-owned Enterprises (SoE) Minister Rini Soemarno attended the ground-breaking ceremony and visited the project in Walini in Bandung Regency.

"I am optimistic about this project which would be in full swing at the end of August. It means that any obstacles we are facing now need to be cleared," Rini told Xinhua.

The minister said she will immediately coordinate with state power firm PLN and the Ministry of Public Works to overcome the obstacles.

"I am pleased with these developments so far. I have heard about results of cooperation with the Chinese firms here, such as recruitment of locals in the projects," she said.

The project was previously delayed due to official permits and land compensation issues, she said.

"But as the state enterprise minister who is a shareholder of this project, I will make it sure this project would be completed as we have planned," she said.

Praising the Indonesian minister's commitments, Zhang Wei, general manager of the China Railway Engineering Corporation (CREC) Jakarta-Bandung High-Speed Railway project, said that the commencement of the tunnel project will offer a significant demonstration and give experience for other tunnel constructions in the HSR project.

"As the first formal project of the Jakarta-Bandung HSR project, the commencement of the tunnel in Walini marks an important step in the overall construction," Zhang told Xinhua.

The CREC will cooperate with other Chinese contractors so as to contribute to the accomplishment of the HSR project and the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative, he said.

The Jakarta-Bandung HSR project contract was signed in Jakarta in early April between consortium joined by Chinese and Indonesian firms and KCIC, a China-Indonesia joint firm tasked with monitoring the project.

The 142-km-long railway project is the first of such in Indonesia as well as in the whole region of Southeast Asia.

and may the coming years of High-Speed rail be more in your favor than the Dutch have ever had

The first hurdle to become a developed nation is taken, and when this one is finished, there is no doubt that any foreigner will be amazed by this achievement: not even because of the line itself, but how a country like Indonesia has managed to make it so far: where live lots of people with a voice and the country is still not rich in economy: the second poorest country to start HSR construction in history (China was poorer at the moment it started construction but not only were Chinese cities much bigger and the land much vaster, now they have a twice as high income).

The HST and other infrastructure is what made China much more wealthy during the past ten years. The next question is just whether Indonesia can achieve almost the same (maybe a tad slower) but then democratically.

Sorry if I sound skeptical, but: have the relevant authorities acquired the land rights along the entire trace of the new railway line yet? I'm asking because the article sounds - by the standards of other countries that have built high-speed lines recently - a bit strange. We are invited to celebrate the fact that the construction of one tunnel has been commenced. Well, if the prospective line is only 142 km long one would normally expect the engineering works to start in parallel along the entire length of the project. This sounds a bit to me (but I could be mistaken?) as if they started works in one of the few places where they could.

I guess this is indicative that land is ready. Correct me if I am wrong

Jakarta's plan to seek rail project bidders is snub to Japan
Seeking to cut costs, Indonesian government rethinking partnership

July 20, 2017 JUN SUZUKI, Nikkei staff writer

Quote:
Indonesia may seek bids from foreign governments to build a new railway on the island of Java, despite its current deal with Japan on the project.

The government of President Joko Widodo is said to be considering inviting foreign governments to bid on the railway project in an attempt to reduce costs. In 2015, for a different high-speed railway project in the country, Indonesia ditched Japan at the last minute in favor of China. Another move along those lines would inevitably hurt the relationship between Japan and Indonesia.

The planned train will run on a 750km or so route between the capital city of Jakarta and Surabaya, Indonesia's second-largest city. The plan is to drastically overhaul an existing state-owned railway and cut the travel time by more than half from the current 11 hours.



Indonesia initially agreed to Japan's proposal to remove railroad crossings to speed up the train. But it suddenly demanded that the railway be run entirely on electricity, pushing up the estimated cost to over 800 billion yen ($7.1 billion). The project then began looking murky.

Indonesia is especially worried about a cost increase. Japan first suggested a yen loan and the Indonesian side seemed to like the idea. But in July last year Widodo chose Sri Mulyani Indrawati, who is keen on maintaining fiscal discipline, as finance minister in a cabinet reshuffle. The government then began calling for a public-private partnership rather than accepting a yen loan because such a partnership does not increase debt.

Last December, Indonesia's Transportation Ministry said, without prior notice to Tokyo, it had agreed to team up with Japan on the railway project. Since then, Widodo's confidant, Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan, coordinating minister for maritime affairs, has visited Japan many times and told Japanese government officials that Indonesia intends to work with Japan on the project.



The Indonesian government, however, reportedly tapped other countries behind Japan's back and China, among others, showed interest in bidding for the project.

The ministry has drawn up a plan for an auction, attaching conditions, such as the trains must run on electricity and a P3 must be used. This in effect undoes the promise to work with Japan. But government officials are said to be still divided and the final decision is up to the president.

All this bodes ill for Japan. Government officials fear "a repeat of the nightmare" two years ago when Japan lost to China the all-but-secured chance to build a high-speed railway between Jakarta and Bandung.

At the time, it appeared almost certain that Japan would supply shinkansen bullet trains to Indonesia. But things changed after Widodo became president in October 2014. In the end, Indonesia chose China, which proposed a P3 and demanded no financial contribution from the Indonesian government. Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga described the decision as "beyond common sense." Relations between Japan and Indonesia have since deteriorated.

The final judgment on the latest project will likely be made by the president as early as August.

Jakarta may offer China larger stake in high-speed rail project
Published Jul 28, 2017, 5:00 am SGT



Quote:
Indonesia may offer China a majority stake, possibly up to 90 per cent, in the Jakarta-Bandung high-speed rail (HSR), to speed things up and reduce its risks.

President Joko Widodo told his Cabinet on Tuesday to evaluate the viability of offering the Chinese consortium involved in the joint venture the larger stake, said a media report yesterday.

Public Works Minister Basuki Hadimuljono told Katadata, a Jakarta-based online business-economic research firm: "Now, 60 per cent is held by state-owned enterprises and 40 per cent by the Chinese, so the President suggested why not Indonesia just take 10 per cent and 90 per cent can go to China, to reduce the risk on Indonesia's side?"

This comes after the cost of the HSR, which will cut travel time between the two cities from about two hours by car to just 36 minutes, rose from US$5.2 billion (S$7.1 billion) to almost US$6 billion. As a result, construction has been at a snail's pace since its launch in late 2015.

The plan is for the 142.3km rail line to be completed by 2019 to become the first HSR in South-east Asia.

According to the Katadata report, Mr Basuki said Mr Joko asked Coordinating Maritime Affairs Minister Luhut Pandjaitan and State-Owned Enterprise Minister Rini Soemarno to work on a detailed calculation of the revised shareholding, and report back within a week.

Mr Joko also asked for a more thorough study of how prospective revenue for the project will be derived, particularly from its transit-oriented developments, which refer to the commercial space that will be built at each train station and leased out, under the joint venture.

Mr Basuki said these developments are important because, if the rail business is the project's only revenue stream, it will break even in only 10 years to 15 years.

The Jakarta-Bandung railway is part of Mr Joko's ambitious infrastructure development plan, which includes the building of major dams, toll roads and sea ports.

The Jakarta-Bandung line is expected to boost Indonesia's manufacturing sector and create hundreds of thousands of jobs.

A loan from China Development Bank takes care of 75 per cent of the project cost, while the Indonesia- China joint venture, Kereta Cepat Indonesia China, covers the rest.

China has been keen to export its HSR technology, making it a major plank of its One Belt, One Road initiative to revive trade from Asia to Europe.

If the Chinese investors increase their stake, as suggested by Mr Joko, they will have to contribute more cash towards the venture's higher costs.

On Tuesday, a government official told The Straits Times on condition of anonymity that costs had gone up due to the need to build a major tunnel for trains to pass through "a high-ground area", elevate parts of the tracks and acquire more land from private parties.

Giving Chinese investors the majority stake would be a breakthrough to move the project along, he said, adding that Indonesia's state-controlled firms have been tasked to build other infrastructure projects and find it hard to inject more cash into the rail venture.

"There should not be any issue in giving China a majority stake because it's not as if they can take with them this railway project back to China," the official said.

"Besides, the project is on a Build-Operate-Transfer arrangement, meaning in this case, after 50 years, the full ownership of the project will be transferred to the Indonesian government."

On Tuesday, Mr Luhut said the Japan International Cooperation Agency will work with Indonesia to conduct a feasibility study on a second HSR linking Jakarta to Indonesia's second-largest city, Surabaya.

The Indonesian government is mulling over whether the train will be powered by diesel, which will cost US$2.2 billion, or electricity, which will increase the cost to US$5.9 billion.
