The Marunda Industrial Bonded Zone will be converted into a special economic zone for industries with high added values. According to the President Director of Marunda Bonded Zone (PT KBN Marunda), Raharjo Arjosiswoyo, the services in the special economic zone will be more advanced than other industrial zones including Batam. Moreover, the global financial crisis seems to have a small effect to the growth of tenants. In 2008, the total exports of the investors from Marunda still showed a high trend, namely US$ 888.4 million.
