Jababeka to develop fashion city in Kendal


A publicly listed Indonesian property developer plans to turn Kendal in Central Java into a “fashion city”.

Jababeka president director S D Darmono said the company will build a textile complex in the city to provide space for textile and clothing manufacturers to develop their businesses.

A bonded warehouse is also expected to be set up near the complex, functioning as a location to stockpile raw materials for clothing manufacture.

In partnership with Singapore-based Sembawang, Jababeka is set to start construction of the fashion city in the middle of this year on a 100-hectare site.
