The government is set to use the state budget to fund a new deep sea port project in West Java to handle exports and imports for Indonesia’s manufacturing hub — a plan that has strayed from the initial proposal to have private investors fund the entire project.

Indonesia is currently negotiating with Japan for a loan worth US$2.49 billion for the project, which will be constructed in Patimban, Subang, West Java.
