"Twenty-one projects have been completed, including the now-operational Yogyakarta International Airport and airports in Labuan Bajo, Lombok, Baubau, and Fakfak," the ministry's secretary, Novie Riyanto, said on Wednesday.

"In total, there are 21 (finished projects) comprising five airports, six railways, and 10 ports," he said.

Riyanto stated that nine projects are targeted to be completed in the 2023-2024 period, including the Dhoho Airport in Kediri, East Java, which is planned and scheduled to become operational soon.

The Raja Haji Abdullah Airport in Tanjung Balai Karimun, Riau Islands, will also become operational in 2024.

After 2024, the Ministry of Transportation still has five projects to be finished, including the construction of the North-South and East-West lines of the Jakarta MRT.

"The MRT project will be massive after 2024," he stated.

According to Economic Ministerial Regulation No. 7 of 2021, there are 35 PSNs in the transportation sector, comprising seven in the air sector, 13 in the railway sector, and 15 in the port sector. (ANTARA)
