Togo is preparing to embark on the world’s largest containerized containerized transport project, in which it will buy nearly a million metric tons of aluminum containers to be placed in three ports of the capital, Jakarta, and in the provinces of Lombok and Papua.
The plan has drawn international condemnation, with many countries, including China, banning the use of steel containers in transport and trade.
In Indonesia, the government announced on Monday that it would buy 1,160 metric tons in containers and that the cost would be about US$1.1 billion, or roughly 10% of the cost of the $9.5 billion project.
Jakarta Mayor Joko Widodo called the containerization plan a “gift from God” and promised that the country would become a “world leader in containerization.”
The containers are being built at the Kedah container port in the state of Bali, a project supported by Indonesia’s central government, as well as the Federal Land Administration and other government agencies.
The city-state has been plagued by environmental degradation and other environmental problems in recent years.
In 2014, Indonesia’s Environment Ministry estimated that the port would generate an environmental loss of 6.4 million metric ton in the next 25 years.
It said that the city’s population would decline by 20%, and by 2030, its population would shrink by more than 30%.
“The world is a very big place,” Widodo said at the announcement.
“It is not going to change that.
We are not going into a situation where we can’t create new jobs.
We can make new jobs, but we cannot create new pollution, nor will we create new problems.”
Togo was not the first Southeast Asian country to announce plans to build containers for the containerized trade.
Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, and Vietnam have also announced plans to buy containers for export.
In recent years, container shipping has grown in Indonesia.
Indonesia has been an early adopter of containerization, which has allowed it to attract the world, as it has the highest containerized shipping volume of any country in the world.
The country’s containerization strategy has helped it to expand its maritime industry and build infrastructure in a number of sectors, including shipping, port construction, and infrastructure.
Jakarta is the only Indonesian city to be ranked in the top 10 countries by cargo-carrying capacity.
