National Strategic Projects Continue, Government to Complete 30 Projects This Year


The Indonesian government is determined to expedite the construction of 25 national strategic projects (PSN) by the end of this year, aiming to boost economic development and infrastructure growth across the country. So far, they have successfully completed five PSNs, marking significant progress towards their target.

Wahyu Utomo, Deputy VI for Regional Development and Spatial Planning at the Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs, emphasized the government’s commitment to achieving their goals.

With a strong focus on infrastructure development, the government aims to complete a total of 30 PSNs in this year alone, with an estimated investment value of Rp 288 trillion. Wahyu Utomo highlighted the importance of timely completion and emphasized that the remaining 25 projects must be finalized by December.

Reflecting on the past, Wahyu Utomo noted that since 2016, Indonesia has successfully concluded the construction of 158 PSNs, a testament to the government’s dedication to enhancing the nation’s infrastructure and economic potential. The most recent achievement was the inauguration of the Cileunyi-Sumedang-Dawuan (Cisumdawu) Toll Road on July 11, 2023.

Looking towards the future, as the Joko Widodo (Jokowi) administration nears its end, the government remains committed to accelerating infrastructure development. In the coming year, they plan to prioritize the completion of approximately 30 PSNs, ensuring the continuity of progress and sustainable growth for the nation.

The Indonesian government recognizes the immense value of strategic projects in driving economic prosperity and improving the lives of its citizens. The completion of these PSNs will not only enhance connectivity and transportation systems but also create employment opportunities and stimulate economic activities in various regions.

The importance of these projects is further highlighted by the KPPIP, which records a total investment value of Rp 1,102.6 trillion from 158 successfully completed national strategic projects.

This significant investment demonstrates the government’s commitment to infrastructure development and the positive impact it has on the nation’s economy.

As the government moves forward with its ambitious plans, it is expected that the completion of the remaining PSNs will contribute to Indonesia’s economic growth, attract further investments, and promote sustainable development. The government’s continued dedication to infrastructure development reinforces its commitment to building a prosperous and resilient future for the country.
