The Jakarta administration has granted the Foreign Ministry a 1.3-hectare plot of land on Jl. Trunojoyo in Kebayoran Baru, South Jakarta, for the expansion of the ASEAN Secretariat.

City secretary Saefullah said on Thursday that the administration had granted the land as a form of Indonesia’s contribution to the regional grouping.

“This is a contribution from Indonesia to ASEAN, as one of its initiators,” Saefullah said on the sidelines of the land handover.
