Indonesia flags April start for much-delayed power plant project

Indonesia’s president said on Tuesday the long-delayed construction of a $4 billion coal-fired power plant would finally start next month, but an activist group said land disputes had not been settled despite his personal intervention.

The mega-project, the largest of its kind in Southeast Asia, is seen by investors as a test case for whether President Joko Widodo’s ambitious reforms can translate into real development in the vast archipelago.
