i think it`s about history guys. it`s idea but it make many pro contra about this idea. i think we can look in many perspect about moving Jakarta. Jakarta since Soekarno Hatta proclaimed our independence , it will be a eyewitness for this independence. so i am one of the person who refuse this idea.

Yup. i totally agree with this. but i do not think that it is not able to be carried out. Moving a capital city is a lot of work and of course involving a huge cost. i would suggest him to think about it very carefully. Should it has bigger advantages rather than disadvantages. It will surely make the migration to new capital city increase greatly. Jakarta will suddenly lose the investments. Imagine how big the growth of business there. well, if it really applicable, then I would suggest 2 cities as the option. one is of course my lovely city, Medan. Why Medan? It is the largest and most famous city outside Java island. The place is really safe and the growth of business is great. Moving to Medan is not really a big problem. Second choice is Pontianak. Pontianak is by far a well known resourceful city in Indonesia. Many business are starting to growing there. By moving there has an additional advantages of fighting the influence of Malaysia over Indonesia. As we know, Kalimantan island is very close to East Malaysia. People there especially at the border are used to relate with Malaysian than Indonesian in term of daily life and business. wow.. It's a long respond. Wonder how much will i get from this respond. haha

Well, it will be hard to comprehend. What I agree is whether to move capital city, economic centre, mode centre, art centre, education centre, and industrial site out of Jakarta. As we know, Jakarta is very complex city that has everything that I mentioned. In other words, with the wideness of Indonesia, it is absolutely unfair to put all the things in Jakarta. It is more wise to put other things at other cities, so that other city may build up a live from its specialty. From what I know, every big company in regional site will have the branch office in Jakarta involved in every transaction. Indonesia should have omit decentralization a long time ago.

Ya of course i agree because jakarta is too crowded and to small as a capital city. If it is moved to out side java is more suitable so the development of the island and city will be spreaded. I think the city in Sulawesi island is ok to be a new capital city. how about you?

many problems will arise, if the capital move. for not only the capital to be moved there are many that need to be moved. all it requires a lot of cost. Indonesia still many problems that need to be overcome. better resolve the existing problems first.

Well i quite agree because jakarta is too crowded now. And since jakarta already this big, it would be fair if the capital moved some where else. We should separate the center of economy and the center of government. Or else, in the future, Jakarta will be very crowded. Thanks.
