During the meeting, Jababeka Group proposed a plan to develop a Special Economic Zone (SEZ) in the field of sports. 

"Thank you Mr. Minister for this meeting. I think sports are very important. If there (SEZ Sports-ed) for sports training, for example, we must produce champions," Darmono told Menpora Dito.

According to Darmono, several potential areas for the development of sports, especially water sports in Indonesia, are still not maximally utilized.

"We still have not utilized water sports well such as in Morotai, Tanjung Lesung, Kendal to Cikarang," explained Darmono.

In other sports, continued the owner of an industrial area of 5,600 hectares and the largest in Southeast Asia, such as soccer and other sports must be created starting from the villages.

Like, said Darmono in his Industrial Estate in Cikarang there is a soccer stadium complex which Jababeka handed over 25 hectares of land to the Bekasi City Government.

"Let's make (Sports SEZ) easy sports so that they can immediately become like soccer for example," Darmono added.

According to him, the development of this Sports SEZ is not difficult, from the ministry later it can issue related regulations, then Jababeka will invite all factory owners or tenant companies in the Jababeka Industrial Estate in Cikarang for cooperation, especially to support soccer clubs.

"Because soccer is a sport with the highest image and is easy unlike other sports. Later we will negotiate, 5 or 10 companies may be enough. Indeed, the city that does not yet exist is a sports city. We will talk again so that this can happen," Darmono explained to Menpora Dito and his staff.

Responding to the proposal, Menpora Dito appreciated Jababeka's efforts in developing sports in Indonesia. He considered that several programs in the Ministry of Youth and Sports were also the same as those conveyed by the Chairman of Jababeka.

"We want there to be a target before October, for a Special Economic Zone (SEZ) involving sports. The program at the Ministry of Youth and Sports, namely sports, sports, sports are in line with Jababeka too, if Jababeka can be used for sports development, we are ready to collaborate," said Menpora Dito.
