Bismillahirrahmanirrahim.

Assalamuálaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
Good afternoon,
May peace be upon us all.

Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen,

We are aware that an issue regarding water will arise if we don’t set up a plan from now. Thus, we start preparing it. The city of Semarang is a great example of water, I mean, clean water management. The project is built through the government-to-business cooperation (KPBU) scheme using Rp870 billion of budget; Rp329 billion of which is sourced from the Central Government, Rp124 billion from regional government, and Rp417 billion from private enterprises. As you see, this is a project on health since the facility has connected more than 60 percent of household. The SPAM has the capacity of 1,000 liters per second and distributes [clean water] to 70,000 households that cover 350,000 people in West Semarang, Ngaliyan, and Tugu.

Once again, the SPAM is built as a joint project by the Central Government, regional government, and private sector. It is a pilot project of a piped water management system. In the future, other cities will follow suit. Lastly, I hope that the new SPAM can be maintained, so it will bring concrete benefits to the people in meeting their needs for a sustainable and affordable clean water supply.

That concludes my remarks. By saying bismillahirrahmanirrahim, today I inaugurate West Semarang Drinking Water Supply System (SPAM) in Semarang city, Central Java province.

I thank you.
Wasalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
