"This is the first step to identify what business potential we will develop in the future," said Basuki.
According to him, business development, especially in the provinces of East Kalimantan and South Kalimantan, which overshadow the Jorong industrial area, is growing very rapidly.
"Therefore, the existence of this cooperation will be good for both parties," he explained.
Furthermore, he revealed, this MoU was the first step to good ways to see existing opportunities to be developed and realized.

Previously in January 2018, PT. Jorong Port Development has also established business cooperation with PT. Pertagas Niaga (a subsidiary of PT Pertamina which specializes in natural gas and its derivatives) related to gas supply in the Jorong industrial area.
"We did not expect to be able to cooperate with most BUMNs. For that, we thank you again and hope that this MoU can continue," said Wishnu.
