Govt urged to stimulate investments in maritime transport

 The Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin) has called on the government to stimulate more investors in maritime transport.

"In an effort to speed up regional economic activity, the government needs to be more innovative with maritime-based investment and business policy, particularly in marine transport as the bridge of national connectivity," Kadin deputy chairman for regional empowerment Natsir Mansyur said on Monday as quoted by Antara news agency.

Natsir further said that the innovative policy was badly needed for regional economic growth to help reduce the burden on the national economy.

"We have to be well-oriented in maritime-based investment and business by significantly raising the number of ships," he said.

According to him, the domestic shipbuilding industry and domestic banking have not been able to meet the national ship demand, particularly the ships of 3,000 to 5,000 DWT for the transport of food commodities, oil and gas, and mining and industrial products.

"We hope that the Transportation Ministry will be more flexible in applying the Shipping Law for investments in maritime transport," he added.
