    Jakarta: National Development Planning Minister Suharso Monoarfa and Presidential Spokesperson Fadjroel Rachman have visited East Kalimantan Province to inspect the location of the planned new capital.

    "We want too see the location of the planned palace ahead of groundbreaking," Fadjroel told here on Monday.

    "Infrastructure projects near the area are still ongoing," Fadjroel stated.

    Last month, the Presidential Spokesperson unveiled several reasons behind capital city relocation. 

    First, population of Jakarta Special Capital Region has exceeded capacity of the city. It will bring serious impacts to the environment, land use for housing and other social issues. 

    Second, Jakarta has poor urban planning, The city has limited green open space, only about 9.8 percent of the total area, while the minimum standards for urban green space is 30 percent of the total area. 

    Furthermore, Jakarta has always been the symbol for centralism, be it as the center of economy, politics, or culture. As a consequence, Jakarta has a huge burden, not only to solve its complex problem but also the urban planning problem.
