Industry plays an important role in the economic progress of every country. The industrial sector is believed to be able to help drive other economic sectors so that the economy in a country can grow. The development of the industrial sector has continued to experience rapid development in the last few decades. The development of the industrial sector is not only happening in the world but also happening in Indonesia, one of which is with the construction of the Jatiluhur Industrial Smart City or better known as JISC.
The development of the industrial sector cannot be separated from the economic impact generated by the industrial sector which has a significant impact, especially on the progress and growth of a country’s economy. The more the industrial sector grows rapidly, the faster the wheels of a country’s economy move and produce economic benefits that can bring prosperity and prosperity to its people.
Initially, the development of the industrial sector in Indonesia was only carried out in certain areas that had certain economic potential, especially the availability of abundant natural resources. For example, there is an area that is known to have natural resources in the form of oil palm plantations. So to support the processing and packaging of its products, palm oil-related industries were built around the plantation site so that eventually a special palm oil industrial area was formed.
However, as time goes by and investment developments continue to increase, the industrial area is transformed not only as an area to support the production of an industry but also as an area that provides a place to live for those who work in the industrial sector without having to travel far to the industrial area. the. These areas are generally also equipped with various sophisticated and environmentally friendly facilities to support the activities and activities of those who live in the area. The area is commonly referred to as a smart city or more popularly known as a smart city.
As one of the well-known modern smart city areas in Indonesia, JISC was specially designed and developed by PT. MultiOptimal Sentosa. JISC itself has a number of special areas that have been designed and adapted to their needs and functions from the start. The special area includes industrial, residential and commercial areas with a total land area of 1,200 hectares.
The location of JISC itself is in Purwakarta Regency, West Java, which is directly adjacent to the eastern end of the Industrial Corridor between Jakarta and Cikampek, which has long been known as a special industrial area. This industrial area itself has experienced quite rapid development in recent years in line with the increasing number of various industrial sector companies present in the area.
One of the advantages of the JISC area is the readiness of its supporting facilities and infrastructure compared to several other smart city areas in Indonesia. In addition, JISC also has the advantage of access connectivity. JISC is connected by land transportation access to two main highways which are located almost in the middle between the two important provincial capitals on the island of Java, namely Jakarta and Bandung and close to the border of the province of Central Java.
In recent years, the central government has also intensively built a number of strategic infrastructures to support transportation and logistics, such as seaports and international airports which are located close to JISC. With these various advantages, it is not surprising that many parties are interested in investing. The JISC area also continues to be developed to fulfill its role as a modern smart city, integrated with industrial areas and other economic centers in the vicinity.
