According to him, the sector that is still sexy for next year is the infrastructure and mining sectors. "Of course, the massive infrastructure sector until the end of 2019 is already visible, then the mining sector, the coal itself is still at a good price and the demand from the mining industry is still quite good," he explained.

Related utilities, he revealed, currently our utility increased by 80%. Previously we had almost full 100% in 2011. "Last year we were very low, for this year we have up to 80%," added Pratjojo.
