Bad idea. US$70 Billion could build so much more for our country than a single bridge. It could build a half a dozen world-class ports, a thousand kilometers of highway, hundreds of kilometers of rail, a few international airports and plenty of irrigation projects as well as power generation capacity and still have money to spare. All that for a single bridge is surely a poor trade off.

$70b would be for the whole Sumatra highway network, including the bridge. It's one of the world's largest island with population more than Malaysia + Singapore + Laos + Brunei. That amount of money for a very productive infrastructure is definitely worth it i would say.

that's some great updates there.. I think connecting Batam to Singapore is possible but linking it by toll road/bridge will not be good for singapore since vehicle traffic will surely flood their streets.. maybe a rail link with bridge/tunnel component will be better.. Sentosa to Batam is actually quite near .. To make it profitable maybe you go bigger like a rail Link between Palembang to Johor with stops in Batam and Singapore.. That would be epic 😊

Maybe it's worth the investment, but IMO not urgent for now.
Building non stop highway from Aceh the western tip of Sumatera to Banyuwangi the eastern tip of Java via Sunda Strait bridge shall be priority. It gives so much return on investment in shorter run.

Sharp, LG to relocate factories to Indonesia

Quote:
Japanese and Korean electronics companies Sharp Corp. and LG plan to relocate their factories from Thailand and Vietnam, respectively, to Indonesia as part of their investment consolidation plans in Southeast Asia.

Industry Minister Airlangga Hartanto said the relocations would further strengthen their operations in Indonesia, where they have built their respective production bases for a number of electronics products.

“We are monitoring the process. Discussions have been going on for quite some time,” Airlangga said at a post-Idul Fitri gathering at his office in Jakarta last week.

LG’s public relations officer was reluctant to elaborate on the company’s relocation plan when contacted by The Jakarta Post, while Sharp’s government relations officer said on Monday that the company’s relocation was part of plans to strengthen its Indonesian operations. He refused to elaborate further.

Meanwhile, the director for electronics and telematics at the ministry, Janu Suryanto, said Sharp would relocate its twin tub washing machine facilities from Thailand to its Indonesian production base in Karawang International Industrial City (KIIC).

“So there will be a production line addition. It will also be for the export market. Later on, it will employ hundreds of workers.” Janu told the Post on Wednesday last week.

Meanwhile, LG will relocate its air-conditioning factory from Vietnam to its production facility in Legok, Tangerang. “They will soon start production and will sell about 25,000 units in September this year,” Janu said. (tkp)

Followed by Panasonic, which is planning to relocate its factory from Malaysia to Indonesia shortly.

Setelah LG dan Sharp, Panasonic akan Pindahkan Pabrik ke RI

Quote:
Jakarta - Perusahaan elektronik Sharp asal Jepang dan LG asal Korea Selatan merelokasi pabriknya dari Thailand dan Vietnam untuk meningkatkan lini produksinya di Indonesia. Selain itu, Panasonic juga mau mau merelokasi pabriknya dari Malaysia ke Indonesia.

Hal itu disampaikan Direktur Industri Elektronika dan Telematika Kementerian Perindustrian (Kemenperin) Janu Suryanto.

"Tambahan lagi Panasonic juga mau minta lini produksinya diresmikan Pak Menteri (Perindustrian). Jadi ada relokasi lagi dari Malaysia," kata dia saat dihubungi detikFinance, Jakarta, Kamis (20/6/2019).

Namun dia belum bisa menjelaskan detailnya lebih lanjut. Dia menjelaskan lebih banyak mengenai Sharp yang akan merelokasi pabrik salah satu produknya dari Thailand ke kompleks pabrik yang ada di Karawang International Industrial City (KIIC).

"Kalau itu nanti tanggal 10 Juli yang Sharp sudah mulai apa namanya, Pak Presiden diundang, mulai inagurasi. Pabriknya sudah di KIIC, tinggal nambahin lini produksi saja, penambahan istilahnya," ujarnya.

Kemudian untuk relokasi pabrik LG dari Vietnam ke Indonesia adalah untuk menambah lini produksi pendingin ruangan atau AC di Indonesia.

"Kalau sharp kan dia relokasi dari Thailand. Kalau LG sudah ada juga di Legok, Tangerang. Jadi ada lini produksinya ditambahin itu buat AC. Selama ini mereka impor yang (produk AC) LG," jelasnya.

Penambahan lini produksi LG ini akan mulai aktif memproduksi AC pada September 2019 ini dan siap dipasarkan.

"Juli sudah inagurasi kalau yang LG, sekarang baru di-setting lini produksinya. Jadi September mereka sudah produksi pertama. Kan itu di-tes dulu kan," tambahnya.

Samota Awarded UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Status

Tambora Mountain

Quote:
The Indonesian region of Samota in West Nusa Tenggara (NTB) has officially received UNESCO Biosphere status. Also known as the Minapolitan Zone, Samota comprises Saleh, Moyo and Tambora (the name ‘Samota’ is a composite of these three locations). The news from UNESCO was confirmed earlier this month at the 31st session of the Man and Biosphere Program International Coordinating Council, held in France.

“Samota was added to the UNESCO’s biosphere reserves list, making it the sixteenth biosphere reserve from Indonesia that has been recognized by the organization,” said NTB Deputy Governor Sitti Rohmi Djalilah, in an interview with The Jakarta Post yesterday (19/6). She also represented Indonesia during the meeting in France, alongside four other delegates.

Samota becomes the sixteenth UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in Indonesia and the second for NTB, the first being Mount Rinjani in Lombok. Najamuddin Amy, who is the NTB administration spokesman, has welcomed the news, stating that the pair of reserves will help conservation efforts in the area, as well as developing projects within local communities.

“Hopefully our two biosphere reserves can help NTB to achieve our sustainable development goals,” Najamuddin said in a statement.

There are more singaporeans visit Batam than people from Batam visit Singapore, many Singaporeans visit Batam for leisure, Singaporeans accounted for one in two of nearly 1.9 million visitors to Batam last year. So I think vehicle traffic will surely flood Batam streets from Singapore not from Batam to Singapore.

Disney's latest show features a protagonist of Thai heritage:
Quote:
‘Amphibia’ Creator Wants Kids to Feel Seen with His Thai American Heroine

Tracy Brown | Los Angeles Times | JUN 14, 2019 7:00 AM

When 13-year-old Anne Boonchuy suddenly finds herself in a lush marshland with bioluminescent mushrooms, giant predatory bugs and a town of frog people in the first episode of “Amphibia,” she is immediately mistaken for a beast.

“Anne has always been Thai from the very inception of the project,” series creator and executive producer Matt Braly told The Times during a recent interview at his Disney Television Animation office. “One of the big reasons for that is growing up, for me, there was nothing.”

Braly, who grew up in Davis, Calif., with his Thai mother and white father, recalled how, when he was younger, he was so desperate for any sort or representation that he clung to movies such as “Mortal Kombat” (1995) just because his mother pointed out scenes shot in Ayutthaya, the old capital of Thailand. “For me, it's always been a huge priority and goal to make a Thai character,” said Braly. “Make a Southeast Asian character that kids now growing up who share a similar background can look at the TV and [say], ‘There's someone like me.’ ”

4km of prime real estate in cebu. transforming the chaotic, dusty port area into a busy commercial/residential zone. all the on-going projects should help improve the street level environment with more presence of retail or f&b stores



it's very close to the built up areas too -- just less than 2km away from the main CBD

I actually visit Singapore on regular basis and have relatives living/working there .. and also I've been to Batam couple of times.. The thing is car ownership in Singapore is very strict and expensive which makes their citizens opt to use public transport which in turn make their roads traffic free.. While batam is more lenient on car ownership... hence it might be true that there are more people coming from singapore but there are more cars per capita in Batam than Singapore,.. so most likely there will be more cars coming from Batam to Singapore than Singapore to Batam which means Singapore will have to deal with more vehicles.. Singapore which lacks space will probably have problems with that whereas if you put HSR pass there to have an interchange in Johor with SG-KL rail connection on one end then connect it to Batam then ultimately to Palembang which in the future will likely have HSR to Jakarta.., then everyone's mobility will benefit without introducing more cars on each others jurisdictions .. Anyways this is just my opinion but maybe they'll have better plans for that area.. It will surely benefit the entire ASEAN..

Thats North Reclamation Area.. It has SM & RGC plus Pier 4,5&6.. It has good Connection to SRP via 1km tunnel and also to Uptown/CBP&CITP via Gen Maxilom which makes it ideal for residential and Mix use developments with BPO.. Currently there are buildings there U/C which are above 30 storeys on Cebu City side.. Hopefully it will grow more and rival the Mandaue side of the North Reclamation Area which is booming these days..

North Sumatra invites South Korean firm to build LRT connecting 4 cities

The North Sumatra provincial administration is planning to build a light rapid transit (LRT) system next year to connect four cities: Medan, Binjai, Deli Serdang and Karo.

The project will involve a South Korean public company, Korea Rail Network Authority (KRNA), which financed LRT Jakarta.

The LRT’s financing scheme has been discussed with the National Development Planning Board and the Finance Ministry.

Ah, I see. I only read the headline, so I stand corrected. Even so, I still believe that other national infrastructure projects ought to be prioritized over the Malacca Strait bridge. Not to mention the security and nation-building aspect of infrastructure. Infrastructure can unite a nation by bridging distances and ending isolation. It will allow for cultural unification crucial to creating an Indonesian identity (which remains a work in progress for our very diverse country).

In that regard, a Sunda Strait bridge would be much more preferred given that it would marry the islands of Java and Sumatra and enmesh the population, culture and economies of the 2 islands into largest of such bloc in our country. Without prioritizing such connectivity first, a Malacca Strait bridge runs the risk of distancing Sumatra from the rest of the country by bringing it closer, culturally, economically and socially with Peninsular Malaysia, not unlike the situation in our border regions such as the borders with Sabah and Sarawak, which is more economically and socially connected with Eastern Malaysia than they do the rest of Kalimantan, much less far-flung Java.
