The Relocation of Indonesia’s Capital City

The full report

Joko Widodo announced that the Indonesian capital will be relocated to East Kalimantan, while the centre of business will remain in Jakarta. The idea for the relocation of Indonesia’s capital is not new, having been conceived since 1957 by Sukarno, the first Indonesian president. Over the decades, the relocation plan surfaced intermittently, until the current president Joko Widodo finally confirmed it in August 2019.
