Director General of Construction, Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing, Republic of Indonesia, Mr Ir. Yusid Toyib, M.Eng. Sc stated, "Construction is one of the powerhouses which drives the economic development, through the improvement of infrastructure, which in turn shall boost the other sectors. Therefore, the construction budget spending is projected to increase in parallel to the government's effort to push for infrastructure growth across Indonesia up to 2019. The Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing shall also continue to encourage the public welfare through infrastructure development, including meeting the demand for decent housing for the people. One of the tasks is the initiative by President Joko Widodo in his One Million Housing program launched earlier this year. This initiative is expected to reduce the backlog of 300,000-400,000 houses annually."  

Concrete is one of the vital elements in a building structure and is a must-have material in all construction. To date, there are several systems of Precast Concrete Structure developed by both private and government sectors to support the construction industry in Indonesia.

"The most common structure system developed now is the use of precast and prestressed concrete system, which is gaining popularity. This system has its advantages compared to regular concrete in terms of quality, speed, cost effectiveness and sustainability. We hope that the latest technology developed by all concrete industry players may accelerate the infrastructure growth as programmed by the government, one of which, the One Million Housing to become reality," added Yusid Toyib.

Certainly, it takes great collaboration among the government and relevant parties to make this initiative happen. Ultimately, it leads to the need for a solid platform for all professionals in the infrastructure sector including but not limited to Precast and Prestressed Concrete Industry to meet and interact in a good and strong network.

Mr Christopher Eve, President Director of PT UBM Pameran Niaga Indonesia mentioned, "Along with the preparation for the construction and further development of infrastructure, the need for a good platform to accommodate all business opportunity and potential emerges. Driven by the high growing construction market in Indonesia, PT UBM Pameran Niaga Indonesia organizes Concrete Show South East Asia for the third time, focusing on the needs of concrete and construction industry."

Concrete Show South East Asia 2015 will present various products, services and technology in concrete and construction, such as concrete mixer, batching plant, light bricks machinery and concrete iron technology. The event is expected to be a channel to improve capacity and quality of buildings whereby all global professionals in this industry gather and network, to name a few, we have Sommer Anlagentechnik GmbH, Weckenmann Anlagentechnik GmbH&Co.Kg and PT Farrasindo Perkasa ready to showcase their latest in Concrete Show South East Asia 2015.
