Tony Blair joins SoftBank, UAE crown prince as advisors for Indonesia’s new capital

At least five foreign investors have expressed their interest in developing Indonesia's new capital city in East Kalimantan, a minister has said, as the government seeks greater private sector involvement in financing the relocation plan. National Development Planning Minister Soeharso Monoarfa said that the prospective investors were from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the United States (US), the United Kingdom (UK), Japan and Germany.  “Each [investor] has offered their respective capacities and technologies. [Japanese conglomerate] SoftBank, for example, wants to provide autonomous vehicles,” Soeharso said at the Presidential Office on Wednesday, but stopped short of mentioning any details about the German investor. During a recent visit to the UAE, President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo invited Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammad bin Zayed Al Nahyan to join the relocation project's  board of advisors. Coordinating Maritime Affairs and Investment Minister Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan, who accompanied Jokowi on the visit, said on Jan. 14 that former UK prime minister Tony Blair and SoftBank Group CEO Masayoshi Son were also expected to join the advisory board, as quoted by kompas.com.
