Jakarta: PT Pelindo II, also known as the Indonesian Port Corporation, is looking to bolster its foreign representation in top management as it seeks ways to bolster efficiency at its terminals. Currently, Pelindo II has one foreigner among its nine board members, an Australian who serves as chief financial officer. Richard Joost Lino, the ceo of the state-owned port operator, has said he intends to have four out of the nine board member positions filled by foreigners.
Pelindo II has recently awarded Japan’s Mitsui & Co the contract to run the first phase of the giant new $2.5bn Kalibaru port in the north of the capital, Jakarta. [05/03/14]
