INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Property consultant Colliers International expects data such as the number of housing units to house backlogs in various areas to be more accurate.

"With the cooperation of various parties is expected to create a more accurate 'landed house' (trail house) data," said Senior Associate Director of Colliers International Indonesia Ferry Salanto in Jakarta, Wednesday (4/4/2018).

To that end, he appreciated the cooperation efforts that have been raised by Bank Indonesia with the association of Real Estate Indonesia (REI) developers to fix the property data.

Moreover, Ferry believes that Bank Indonesia as an independent institution is also expected to further dig the information to the developer.

"The backlog data, which is scattered nowadays is unclear where data comes from, most of which are only estimates," he said.

BI Senior Deputy Governor Mirza Adityaswara said the cooperation was done because the central bank needed accurate data as a sure foundation to produce a decision related to the property sector.

Mirza also expressed his hope that in 2018 which is often referred to as the political year, not to dampen the intentions of business actors to conduct economic activities.
