The government has appointed Tumiyana as president director of state-owned construction company PT Wijaya Karya (Wika), replacing Bintang Perbowo, who has retired.

Corporate secretary Puspita Anggraeni said Tumiyana, who was previously president director of another state-owned construction company, PT Pembangunan Perumahan, was appointed during a shareholders meeting in Jakarta on Tuesday.

“The company has selected a new board of directors," she said at a press conference after the meeting.

Puspita added that the meeting also agreed to appoint Agung Budi Waskito as operations director, replacing Chandra Dwiputra.

During the meeting, the company also said it had established a directorate to oversee quality, safety, health and environment (QSHE),  led by Danu Prijambodo, who was previously an executive at state-owned gas distributor PT Perusahaan Gas Negara (PGN).

The directorate was established in response to recent accidents at infrastructure construction sites. The meeting also agreed to distribute Rp 240.41 billion (US$17.31 million) in dividends, 20 percent of its 2017 net income.  The dividends will be paid within the next 30 days. (bbn)
