INDUSTRY.co.id - Palembang- Tanjung Api-Api Special Economic Zone (KEK) in Banyuasin Regency, South Sumatera, is targeted to operate starting June 2018 in accordance with the decision of SEZ National Council.

Special Staff of South Sumatra Governor I Gede Bagus Surya Negara in Palembang, Friday (9/8/2017) said the National Council of SEZ chaired by Coordinating Minister for the Economy Darmin Nasution asked the South Sumatera Provincial Government to ensure that 66.13 hectares of land already released in TAA area was soon built SEZ infrastructure facilities.

"The president asked KEK to run despite the new land acquisition of 66.13 hectares out of a total of 217 hectares so that the target of June 2018 already has activities there," he said.

For that, from September 2017 to June 2018 will be focused on land maturation activities that will be projected for KEK administration office and a number of other supporting buildings.

Both of these locations, namely Tanjung Carat as a supporter of KEK TAA will be linked by protected forests use and borrow area which is currently being administered its licensing.

The development of KEK TAA will certainly continue because the government has secured investment in the private sector in the field of petrochemicals, refineries, and others.
