Sabah and Sarawak to profit economically from Indonesia’s new capital city

Indonesia’s plan to relocate its capital city from Jakarta to Kalimantan, which is anticipated to begin in the first quarter of 2024, would help Sabah and Sarawak.

This was disclosed during a table discussion with Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Sabah and Sarawak Affairs) Datuk Seri Maximus Ongkili and Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Economy) Datuk Seri Mustapha Mohamed hosted by the Indonesian Chambers of Commerce (Kadin) Jakarta.

“The relocation of Indonesia’s capital city is projected to bring in economic and development spillovers that would trickle down through the border economy to Sabah and Sarawak,” Ongkili added.

Adlan Mohd Shaffieq, the Malaysian Embassy’s Chargé d’affaires in Indonesia, was also present at the meeting.

Kadin is an umbrella organization that brings together Indonesian business chambers and groups to address all aspects of national and international commerce, industry, and services.
