Govt Launches Land Boundary Marking Movement
The Government seeks to accelerate land certification in Indonesia through the Land Boundary Marking Movement, President Joko Jokowi Widodo has said.
“By saying bismillahirrahmanirrahim, I declare that Land Boundary Marking Movement officially begins,” the President said during the launching ceremony of the movement in Kendari, Southeast Sulawesi, Saturday (2/3).
On that occasion, the President also inspected the process of land boundary marking carried out by land owners and land surveyors from Ministry of Agrarian and Spatial Planning/the National Land Agency (BPN).
President Jokowi also tried a land-measuring device which employs satellite technology to determine land boundaries. New technology, the President said, makes land boundary marking easier. He added that the Government has also accelerated land certification process from 500,000 per year in 2014 to 7 million per year in 2018 and 9 million in this year (estimated).
In the meantime, Governor of Southeast Sulawesi Ali Mazi praised the land marking movement and said that land marking is pivotal in land certification. (EN/RAH/ES)
