The life insurance company Bumiputera 1912 plans to build the highest building in Indonesia, with 63 floors.
"We have conducted the ground breaking ceremony of Bumiputera Tower located east of the Wisma Bumiputera on Jl. Jend. Sudirman, Jakarta," President of AJB Bumiputera Soeseno Hario Saputro told the press in Jakarta Wednesday night.
This tower would not only represent the strength and capability of AJB Bumiputera in building a corporation, but is also a commitment to guard the economic growth of this nation.
"We are building a monument for the Indonesian people, including AJB Bumiputera policy holders, as proof that the company is still standing firm and tall, which would also become a convenient business center to be proud of," Seoseno said.
In the construction of the building, Bumiputera will team up with PT Adhi Karya. Bumiputera Tower which will be built on 100,000 square meters will meet all the criteria of a Type A Premium office building, which is the highest grade of an office block. It will also a parking lot of 25,000 square meters, and each of its storeys will have a floor space ranging from 1800 to 2500 square meters.
The value of the land and building will reach more than Rp 1.7 trillion, Seno said, adding that it will raise Bumiputera`s assets significantly.
On the occasion he also said that on the company`s 96th founding anniversary on February 12, 2008, Bumiputera issued a wide range of health insurance products to make it easy for the public to choose the most suitable system.
In running this health insurance, Bumiputera teamed up with PT. Insan Dharma Nusa (Blue Dot), which will carry out cooperation with hospitals.
The contract had already been signed. This product will meet the wishes of local customers in need of a health insurance. Previously, he said, Bumiputera already provided health insurance, but still attached to life insurance. Therefore, to accommodate the needs of the customers, health insurance will be separated from life insurance, he said.
This product, he added, not only covers hospitalization, but also outpatients, dental examination, childbirth, and eye examiantion.
To make things for the policy holders easier, the company issued an ID card. This year the Bumiputera health insurance products still serve groups, which in the future will be expanded to cover individuals and services under the syariah system, he said.
