A video has been released by The Economist which explores Indonesia’s plan to become a maritime giant.

Indonesia’s President Jokowi has ambitious plans for Indonesia and intends to build as many as 24 new ports for the country, as well as 15 new airports by 2015.

Joko “Jokowi” Widodo said in 2015 that: “We have turned our back on the seas, oceans, straits and bays for too long.

“[They] are the future of our civilisation. We have to work as hard as possible to make Indonesia a maritime nation once again.”
