Unlocking Innovation in Infrastructure
Thursday, January 26, 2017
Radju Munusamy (seated, third from left), Chairman of Jebsen & Jessen Indonesia Group, moderated a discussion with five experts from the Indonesian infrastructure sector.
Jebsen & Jessen Indonesia Group joined the 3rd Indonesia Economic Forum 2016 in Jakarta, Indonesia along with some of the country’s most influential business leaders, entrepreneurs and policy makers. The two-day conference saw Chairman of Jebsen & Jessen Indonesia Group Radju Munusamy moderating an expert panel on the potential of innovation.
“The purpose of innovation in infrastructure is to optimise cost, time and space factors affecting projects at two stages – project execution (by adopting appropriate products or equipment) and asset management (by using the right technology or product in maintenance and operation),” he said.
This is relevant given that Indonesia has identified 255 National Strategic Projects, of which 30 have been selected as the focus of infrastructure delivery in the beginning of 2016, shared Rainier Haryanto, Program Director, Committee for Acceleration for Priority Infrastructure Delivery.
“But Indonesia faces several challenges in infrastructure development such as an increasingly complex political process, the rising cost of labour, land acquisition problems and a legacy of low tariffs,” added Emil Dardak, the regent of Trenggalek, a town in South Java.
At the event, Jebsen & Jessen Indonesia Group also showcased its product and solution innovations for the infrastructure sector, such as Avant and Cold Flood Prevention from its Technology business, Car and Motorcycle Parking Systems from MHE-Demag and Jeofoam from Jebsen & Jessen Packaging.
