"In Sei Mangkei there is a huge investment for the downstream of palm oil," said Director of Commercial and Commercial House (RUK) Directorate General of Housing Provision of the Ministry of PUPR Dadang Rukmana.
For Sei Mangkei, the proposal to make them as independent cities has actually emerged since 2015. While the Kayangan and Sovivi emerging 2016.
Currently, the Ministry of PUPR is still waiting for the big plan of infrastructure development in the four areas that are being designed by the National Development Agency (Bappenas).
However, for some cities that have previously entered into the RPJMN 2015-2019, execution has begun. It was at least already seen in Maja, Banten.
