JAKARTADAILY.ID - This year, the government will provide another round of state budget, or APBN, funds worth Rp28.84 trillion to the state asset management agency (Lembaga Manajemen Aset Negara, LMAN) for land acquisition matters.

Previously from 2016 to 2021, the government had given Rp105.62 trillion to LMAN for the same subject. President Jokowi had directly assigned the agency to free and pay the lands to speed up the infrastructure development actualization.

Suahasil Nazara, the Deputy Minister of Finance, conveyed that the following steps taken are a form of the government's effort to accelerate infrastructure development.

"In the context of infrastructure development, one of the primary issues is to [acquire] the land," said Suahasil, as quoted by Antara on Wednesday.

Based on the data, in 2016, LMAN received a total of Rp16 trillion from the state's budget. It further received Rp32.05 trillion in 2017, Rp31.15 trillion in 2018, Rp12 trillion in 2019, Rp14.42 trillion in 2021, and Rp10 trillion in 2022.

"The land funding has been done since 2016. The nation has shown apparent concern [through the allocation of the state's budget] for the infrastructure development," said Basuki Purwadi, the President Director of LMAN.

The LMAN has utilized Rp91,93 trillion of the total budget in 2022 to actualize multiple schemes of the National Strategic Project or PSN.

This includes 53 freeways for Rp79,45 trillions, 40 dams for Rp8,33 trillions, six irrigations for Rp, 548,4 billion, nine railways for Rp2,71 trillion, one harbor for Rp791,6 billion, one national tourism strategic area or KSPN for Rp84,93 billion, and one water purification project for Rp20,86 billion.
