Indonesian company seeks public works contracts in East Timor

11 January 2013

The Indonesian construction company PT Waskita Karya plans in the second quarter to begin three public works projects in East Timor together worth 500 billion rupiahs (US$51.82 million), the company’s president recently indicated in Jakarta.

Mohammad Choliq specified that the three projects involve a 20 km long road, a steel-structure bridge and a 15 km electric power line, the Jakarta Post newspaper reported.

PT Waskita Karya has begun negotiating with the East Timorese government to obtain contracts for the three projects, Choliq said.

Unlike contract awards in other countries, in East Timor there will be no subcontracting and the company will carry out the work, he added. (macauhub)
