Sea Transport Seminar between Japan and Indonesia

Indonesia welcomed us with hot humid weather!

About 100 participants from various fields of the maritime industry gathered at Pullman Jakarta Indonesia Hotel on February 29.  We were graced with the presence of Deputy Minister of Transportation, Dr. Bambang Susantono, where extensive discussions were held between Japan and Indonesia.

Furthermore, on the next day, official site visits were planed at several developing port areas: Cilamaya, Karawang International Industrial City, and Pelabuhan Tanjung Prilk.  Getting there was an adventure in its own because of bumpy roads making it a roller coaster ride.  Combined with rain in the morning, we all got muddy shoes at the muggy harbors.

However, we believe that further road maintenance and port construction will lead to further improvements in the Jakarta region by undertaking this opportunity.
