INDUSTRY.co.id - Yogyakarta - Minister of Public Works and Housing (PUPR) Basuki Hadimuljono revealed that the housing sector's achievement in the last 3 years (2015-2017) is the construction of houses of 2.4 million units, of which 15% received funding stimulants from the state budget.

"2015-2017 has been built for 2,490,378 units with details in 2015 of 699,570 units, 2016 as many as 881.102 units and in 2017 as many as 904,758 units," said Minister Basuki last weekend.

The achievement is dominated by 75% housing construction for the MBR of 679,770 units and non-MBR houses of 224,988 units.

It is said Minister Basuki one of the challenges in implementing One Million Housing Program (PSR) is the availability and price of land is very high.

As a result, the development of the construction of a house site for MBR, its location is far in the suburbs with limited transportation access. Therefore the construction of Flats in urban and surrounding areas continues to be pushed.

The Central Government, together with the Regional Government, the Housing Development Association, the Banking and other stakeholders are working to increase the supply and accessibility of the people to own the house through the One Million House Program.

To realize the achievement of the program, the Government has issued a policy to cut the licensing of housing both in the Central Government and which is the authority of the Regional Government.

One of them through the Economic Policy Package XIII on Housing for MBR and followed by the issuance of Government Regulation no. 64 of 2016 on Low-Income Housing Development on 29 December 2016.
