Jakarta welcomes plan to develop Disneyland

The Indonesian Presidential Office has welcomed the plan to develop a Disneyland entertainment venue in Boyolali regency, Central Jakarta, with the hope that it will have a multiplier effect on development in the region, reported on Monday (April 17, 2017).

“Indonesia is wide open for any investment that has a multiplier effect on development in the region,” said Cabinet Secretary Pramono Anung at the Presidential office in Jakarta on Monday.

Previously, Boyolali Regent Seno Samudra said he had received an offer from Disneyland management in California for the company to develop a venue on a 100-hectare site in the regency.

The ground-breaking ceremony for the project is scheduled for Sept 1.

Pramomo said that in the area, the government had established a growth-center triangle – Solo (Surakarta), Klaten and Yogyakarta – in which Boyolali had been included and would be promoted as a target for investment.

“If a Disneyland really is to be developed, it is great news and it will be a large investment,” Pramono added.
