China: Chinese developer to launch Indonesia's 1st int'l new industry city

2017/04/07

A subsidiary of a Chinese developer in Indonesia will launch its integrated real-estate project of the country's initial international new industry city on April 6, an executive of the company said on Friday.

China Fortune Land Improvment(CFLD) Indonesia's vice president Imelda Adhisaputra said the project, located in Tangerang city around 50 km west of Jakarta, offers 2,800 houses on the 60-hectare land.

"We bought the land for Lavon project from PT Alam Sutera Realty Tbk. It will be a mixed-use development, as we will integrate it with commercial and industrial clusters," she told Xinhua.

Adhisaputra added that the site will be provided with good connectivity, as the third phase mass rapid transit was being planned to connect the area with the capital city Jakarta.

"We had spent around Rp 4 trillion (300 million U.S. dollars) in the last two years to procure land and develop real estate in Lavon project and our second project in Karawang, West Java," she said.

The company's second project on 200 hectare land would as well be a mixed-use development, with industrial estate being built before the commercial and residential clusters.

CFLD, established in 1998, is one of the biggest Chinese companies in the industrial estate sector and listed in Forbes Asia's Fab 50 Companies in 2015.

CFLD's President Jerry Zhao had said that Indonesia is listed on the company's top priority investment outside China. The company is looking for opportunities not only in Java Island, but other areas in the fourth most populous country in the world.

Chairman Judge of the 2017 Indonesia Property Awards Hendra Hartono, before this month, said that developers from Chinese mainland are aggressively coming into Jakarta's residential market, focusing on middle to high-end projects.

The new data from Indonesia's Investment Coordinating Board shows the price of foreign direct investment in all property segments in Indonesia reaches 2.3 billion U.S. dollars in 2016. In general in the 2016, China listed as third biggest foreign investor with 2.7 billion U.S. dollars following Singapore and Japan, respectively.

  • 5 charts that show how China is spending billions in foreign aid

    2017/10/14 China's foreign aid is sharply in focus this week with an unprecedented new data trove showing the country's growing global reach and detailing how Beijing spends its cash. In recent decades, the world's second largest economy has evolved from an aid recipient to a net aid donor. But a lack of official information on China's development activities had prevented the international community from understanding where and how the country spends its foreign aid. That's because the government considers its international development finance program to be a "state secret," according to AidData, a research lab at Virginia-based College of William & Mary.

    2017/10/10 Everyone has their habits at the same time as they return to a favourite place. Landing in Guangzhou recently, my initial act — as always — was to seek out the new edition of Southern Weekend. It was formerly the vanguard of Chinese investigative journalism, exposing crooked officials, dodgy charities and official hypocrisy of all flavours. Its lead story would be an exposé, illustrated by a striking image. The 7 September edition was none of those things. A striking image did fill the front page, but it was of President Xi Jinping. The ‘chairman of everything’ is pictured striding across a marble floor, looking calm, composed and exhaustively pleased with himself as he prepares to address the media at the conclusion of the 9th BRICS Forum in Xiamen.
