Title will relocating Indonesia's Capital prove a success story? Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet Monash Lens Media type Web Country Australia Date 28/10/19 Description Can Indonesia solve the problems plaguing its overcrowded capital, Jakarta, by moving 1.5 million public servants to East Kalimantan on the island of Borneo?
The idea has been in the works for decades. Now Indonesia’s President, Joko Widodo, has announced that construction of the city will start next year, pending parliamentary approval.
