On Aug 4th, in Jakarta, KOICA (a government agency responsible for grant)
holds a workshop of the ‘project for capacity development for safety management
of the public facilities in Indonesia (2014-2016/$2mil)’.
Mr. Kim Byungkwan, head of KOICA Indonesia office, and 50 officials from
related organizations including Korea Infrastructure Safety Corporation (KISTEC)
and Ministry of Public Housing of Indonesia participated in the event to share
the contents and future development of the project.
Even though the number of building and bridge are increasing in Indonesia,
due to lack of safety management system and technologies, concerns about safety
of facilities are spreading over Indonesia.
KOICA has put two million dollar to support the construction of safety management
system of Indonesian government since 2014, as well as plans to conduct safety
diagnosis of Batam island.
KOICA and KISTEC will dispatch specialists on construction law, safety principles,
and bridge to develop policy framework on safety inspection of Indonesia’s
national facilities, and specialists on structure, tension measurement system,
and ground for model safety inspection of cable-stayed bridge. KOICA will also
support capacity building of related officials through fellowship program.
