China invests in Sulawesi
China plans to invest Rp 22 trillion (US$2.57 billion) in a number of projects in West Sulawesi, Governor H. Anwar Adnan Saleh said.
“Thank God, West Sulawesi is the only province in Indonesia to receive an investment of Rp 22 trillion from the Chinese government. In the not-so-distant future the investment will be realized. Hopefully, the investment will enable West Sulawesi to make progress and put it on par with other provinces,” he said on Saturday.
Anwar, who was elected governor of the province in 2006, is seeking re-election in October.
He said part of the investment would be used to build one of the biggest hydropower plants in Asia, which is expected to supply power to the entire island.
“The hydropower plant will be built in Bonehau sub-district, Mamuju district. The presence of this electrical energy source will be a special pride for the people of West Sulawesi because this region will be free from energy crisis,” he said.
