    Selly Wang says:

    congratulations for Indonesia

    a_a says:

    Thank you 🙏🏼

    Ocean Wave says:

    If you want chaos, mess, constant confrontation, division, in political, social aspects, feel free to follow western model. If you want rapid development, solidarity, long-term vision and planning, stability, follow China/Singapore’s model.

    People Liberator says:

    you can get infrastructure like roads, bridges, railways, dams, power stations, schools, hospitals, Free Trade Aggreement, manufacturing jobs, largest tourists and 1.4b consumer market.
    or
    you can get infrastructures like military basessss, coupssss, regime changessss, being cannon fodderssss against another superpower.

    Rio says:

    I prefer Chinese funded infrastructure over western lectures

    KOSEIDON says:

    Hahaha

    peter kogl says:

    Exactly 💯💯💯💯😊

    People Liberator says:

    western lectures? no, it’s not only lecture but coup, regime change, sanction, or democracy dropping.

    peter kogl says:

    Thank you China. God bless Indonesia.

    Frogs F says:

    Congrats.. greater Pakistan/Kashmir: same too . & via new orange metro train’s etc too. Hopefully soon bullets train confirmed too..

    People Liberator says:

    Japan railway failed in India and Vietnam, Indonesia must feel very lucky to choose China.

    rKs Chanel says:

    Because our President Joko Widodo has a vision for the future..
    The Indonesian President’s motto is work work and work

    People Liberator says:

    Japan railway failed in India and Vietnam, Indonesia must feel very lucky to choose China.

    sihk sahmir says:

    It’s not luck, it’s a choice.Some think they are smart but in the end….

    Legend says:

    I’ts not a luck Indonesia chose china. The bid was between Japan and China, and the president, jokowi, chose china after calculating everything.

    Afzalur Rahman says:

    Good job China

    Jaye Chow says:

    However, back in Modi country, the Made in Japan HSTR risk more delays and higher cost. Stupidity has no cure.

    esa shaik says:

    This brings Indonesia one step closer to Bringing itself on par with Japan and South Korea.

    a_a says:

    Try to see this as opportunity instead of liability… such a good point! That’s the difference between visionary and fix minded people.

    Agus Medan says:

    California US High Speed Rail:
    – Started since 2008,
    – Spent more than 10 Billion USD,
    – 2022 not even reach 20% of completion.

    Indonesian – China High Speed Rail.
    – Started since 2015,
    – Cost 7 Billion USD,
    – Final test in 2022,
    – Open for public in 2023.

    Kevin Kurniawan says:

    Infrastructure and poverty eradication can be done simultaneously. The government is a multi-sectoral body, it has the ability to focus on multiple things at once. Building a high-speed railway line does not necessarily mean neglecting poverty and unemployment. I understand some might fear that this project will be a white elephant and a debt trap, and I’m no expert so my opinion must not be taken without a grain of salt, but I do believe the market is there IF the government has the will power to create an integrated transportation system so that the train will be accessible to many, especially in Bandung where the main station is quite a distance from the city center and with no mass transport connecting the two. Also, I do believe Indonesia has a strong enough economy to repay the loan in the long term, and unlike Sri Lanka, a default would be unthinkable for an economy the size of Indonesia.

    kk says:

    The president of Indonesia seems has a big vision for Its country, and Im pretty sure he know what is the best for the people

    i wayan rinanta says:

    Indonesia to the future

    Jimy Ry says:

    China built a highway connecting phnom penh to sihanoukville in Cambodia. Time travel reduced from 6 hours to 1.5 hours

    rKs Chanel says:

    We, Indonesia, have been able to build 2,500 km of highway toll roads so far..
    And later in 2024 it will be 4,000 km,,

    interstellarphred says:

    USA spends more on highways that clog up in less time than it took to build them

    JAC 91 says:

    It is unfortunate that Indonesia had collaborated with cheap chinese companies. Being a railway guy by myself, I can predict how crappy this railway project gonna be. cheap and cumbersome chinese rollingstocks will only lead to cost over runs and a lot of down time.
