Shipbuilding Industry, Maritime Industry
The Indonesian government has invested heavily in the maritime industry since taking office in 2014, and thus underpins Indonesia’s long-term aspiration to again become one of the most important maritime axes in South East Asia. By 2019, approximately 1,500 ports are expanded and modernized. To realize its ambitious plan to expand Indonesia as a global maritime axis again, President Joko Widodo also needs to revive the shipbuilding industry. Currently, it can cover only 10% of the demand for new ships.
