INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - The industrial area of ​​Sriwijaya Central Business District (Sriwijaya CBD) developed on an area of ​​307 hectares is considered highly prospective for investors. The reason, the area is supported by adequate infrastructure, including natural resources and energy required by the industry.

"Besides located in the middle of the city of Palembang, South Sumatra, Sriwijaya CBD area is also located at the exit and enter the Trans Sumatera toll road. Therefore, this area will be the most complete business solution in Palembang, "said Imam Haryono, Director General of Industrial Zoning Development (PPI), in Japan.

Imam Haryono explained that when he became the keynote speaker in Japan in the forum "Investment of Indonesian Industrial Estate Outside Java Island" on 13-15 September 2017.

From the results of the meeting with the event, Japanese investors are asking to invest in Palembang, South Sumatra. They assess Palembang is a city that has been developed and already woke up. Moreover, will host Asean Games 2018.

Meanwhile, Gadiza Fauzi, President Director of Sriwijaya CBD, said the Japanese investors looked enthusiastic to invest in Palembang, as they have been worried about congestion in Java affecting the effectiveness of production.

In addition to being a developed city, Gadiza, Palembang is considered good enough in handling congestion by building a sophisticated means of transportation.

"The city transportation is smooth and there is also LRT. In addition, the Minimum Wage of Basic (UMP) is relatively lower than Java, "said Gadiza.

Gadiza said that the industrial area of ​​Sriwijaya CBD is feasible to be an investment destination because it has a number of competitive advantages, namely the location of Sriwijaya CBD in Gandus which became the only entrance in and out of Palembang from the Trans Sumatra highway.

Trans Sumatra Toll connects all cities in Sumatra from Aceh to Lampung. In fact, the location of Sriwijaya CBD industrial area from Gandus toll gate is only 1 km away.

In addition, Gadiza, the Sriwijaya CBD area is also adjacent to the airport and city government offices making it easier to manage the administration as well as close to the Bom Baru port of Palembang, so that the distribution of finished goods is easier and logistics costs cheaper.
