The Bojonegara International Port in Serang Regency, Banten province, has been left to crumble. Since the construction was started in 2003, the port has never been operational although it was originally planned to start operating in 2007. The government has spent Rp 100 billion for the construction. According to the Banten port administrator office, the port’s current condition is unsuitable for an international port and its location does not fulfill the shipping safety standards.
