Property development, retail and goods and services companies have contributed Rp 7.8 trillion (US$575 million) in its investment to Jakarta's satellite city of Bekasi during the first semester, an official has said.

Bekasi Investment Capital and One-Stop Integrated Services Agency secretary Lintong Dianto Lutra said on Wednesday that total investment value was expected to reach more than Rp 8 trillion by the yearend on growing property developments in the West Java city. 

Lintong said the regional government had targeted Rp 10 trillion in investment for 2017 and 2018. 

"We believe that we can achieve the target," he said, as quoted by wartakota.tribunnews.com.

"Sixty percent of the total investment come from local investors while the rest is the foreign players," Lintong added. 

With several infrastructure projects under way, including the Bekasi-Cawang-Kampung Melayu (Becakayu) toll road and the Light Rail Transit (LRT), Bekasi Mayor Rahmat Effendi said investors need not worry about accessibility. 

Rahmat said legal certainty would be assured for investors, so they would feel secure about investing in Bekasi. (rdi)
