META to work with Japanese  firms on toll road
Publicly listed infrastructure company PT Nusantara Infrastructure (META) says it will team up with two Japanese investors — Japan Expressway International Co. Ltd. (JEXWAY) and West Nippon Expressway Co. Ltd. (W-NEXCO) — to develop its Bintaro Serpong Damai (BSD) toll-road project connecting Serpong and Pondok Aren, both in South Tangerang, Banten.
JEXWAY and W-NEXCO will secure a 4.18-percent share in the project, leaving a 88.94-percent share of the project to META.
The 7.25-kilometer toll road project is commercially viable as average traffic between Serpong and Pondok Aren rose by 6.89 percent to 84,665 vehicles in 2013 compared to the previous year.
META general manager for corporate affairs Deden Rochmawati said the collaboration showed the firm’s commitment to developing infrastructure in the country. “This is our strategy as a company to anticipate infrastructure projects that will be pushed during President Joko [“Jokowi”] Widodo’s tenure,” Deden said as quoted by on Monday.
“We hope that by collaborating with global partners like JEXWAY and W-NEXCO we will be able to open up more room for our company to participate in a number of infrastructure projects in Indonesia.”
The agreement between META and the two Japanese firms was signed last week by META CEO Ramdani Basri, chief representative of W-NEXCO’s Indonesia representative office Yoshihiro Wada and JEXWAY director Hiroshi Saito.
Last week’s signing was a follow-up to the sales and purchase of shares agreement (SPA) between the three companies in Tokyo on Nov. 18.
“The toll-road business has good prospects in Indonesia due to the growing middle class and affluent consumers,” she said.
In addition, she said the company had also collaborated with other global investors such as CapAsia and Providence Equity Partners.

As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
