"The fund for the purchase of vessels is sourced from internal cash and bank loans," he said.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of SOEs welcomes the steps of state-owned shipping company PT Djakarta Lloyd (Persero), which is procuring bulk carriers.

"This is a good moment, as part of the synergy of SOEs, between Djakarta Lloyd and PLN," said SOE Minister Rini M Soemarno.
