Jakarta (VNA) – Many investors are interested in Indonesia’s new capital city or IKN Nusantara project, said Minister of Public Works and Housing (PUPR) Basuki Hadimuljono.

With the high interest of foreign investors, the official was optimistic that the project could be mainly funded from investment instead of the state budget, reported Indonesian weekly magazine Tempo.

He listed a series of sectors for the investment, including road construction, drinking water, education, and hospitals.

According to the minister, the Indonesian Government has worked with the Malaysian and Japanese sides to hold forums to promote investment in the project.

PUPR spokesperson Endra Atmawidjaja said at least 183 Malaysian investors, working in the sectors of property, health, digital, startup, transportation, and energy, are interested in investing in the new capital city./.
