The government of Indonesia knows that land acquisition has long been the bane of infrastructure projects. New laws and regulations were thus created to improve on the country’s¬†system of land acquisition. One of the new policies that came out as a result was the improved consignment policy that departed from the 1996 consignment mechanism. The new and improved policy was outlined in Law No. 2/2012 on Land Procurement for Development in the Public Interest, with further elaboration contained in Government Regulation (PP) No. 30/2015 and Regulation of the Head of BPN No. 3/2007 concerning Systems and Procedures for Consignment. But it appears that even the new and improved consignment mechanism cannot truly¬†expedite the land acquisition process.To subscribe please click here
