President Susilo Bambang Yu-dhoyono inaugurated eight mega projects in resource-rich East Kalimantan on Wednesday as part of the Master Plan for the Acceleration and Expansion of Indonesia’s Economic Development, the Jakarta Post reported.

Two of the projects have already been completed: Kariangau Port in Balikpapan and Kalimarau Airport in Berau regency in the north part of the province.

Still under construction are an expansion project for Sepinggan Airport in Balikpapan, twin bridges in Samarinda, East Kalimantan, an industrial estate and an international port in East Kutai regency, a new airport for Samarinda and other industrial projects.

Yudhoyono said that the eight projects had a combined price tag of IDR19 trillion (US$2 billion).

East Kalimantan governor Awang Faroek Ishak said that the recently completed Kalimarau Airport has opened with a 2,250 meter runway that can accommodate medium-range jet airliners such as the Boeing 737 aircraft.

The airport, which is equipped with a 9,000-square-meter terminal, has already received its operating license from the Transportation Ministry, according to the governor.
