INDUSTRY.co.id - Lebak - Five sub-districts in Lebak Regency, Banten enter industrial estates based on Regional Regulation (Perda) Number 02 of 2014 concerning Regional Spatial Planning (RTRW).
"The industrial area certainly absorbs thousands of workers," said the Head of the Lebak Regency Public Works and Spatial Planning Office (DPUPR) Teguh Eko Saputro in Lebak, Saturday (8/9/2018)
Local governments encourage investors to invest in industrial estates, thereby boosting the economic growth of local communities.
The industrial area covering an area of 1,300 hectares spread across five sub-districts including Rangkasbitung, Maja, Curugbitung, Bayah and Cilograng.
In fact, a number of national and foreign companies have produced and absorbed employment for the community.
For example, he said, the Rangkasbitung industrial area contained PT Aplus Gypsun, PT Saedong and Dongkuk Sukses Mandiri which produced shoes and building materials.
Likewise PT Cemendo Gemilang in Bayah District which produces red and white cement.
The presence of industrial estates can minimize the Lebak Regency residents seeking employment outside the area, Tangerang, Serang, DKI Jakarta and Bogor.
According to him, the local government is committed to making employment in their own regions in order to improve the welfare of the community as well as anticipating poverty.
Because of that, it provides ease of licensing and security guarantees for investors who want to develop business in the industrial zone.
Industrial estates can boost the growth of rental houses as well as various food stalls
"We hope that the industrial area can directly prosper the community," he said
