Government to focus on port, railway projects

The government will prioritize the development of port and railway infrastructure this year to ease the flow of goods and reduce high transportation costs in the country, Transportation Minister Jusman Syafii Djamal says. Among development plans for this year, he said, was the modernization of navigation systems in three international airports: Kuala Namu airport in Medan, Lombok airport in Lombok and Hasanuddin airport in Makassar. He also said the ministry will develop ports designed to load crude palm oil (CPO) as the commodity had become the country's main export.
