Indonesia announces plans for new capital city

Indonesia plans to move its capital to Borneo island from Jakarta, President Joko Widodo said on Monday. Widodo said it was urgent that relocation plans commence, although the capital would not physically begin to be relocated until 2024. Jakarta, one of the world’s most densely populated cities, is prone to floods and is sinking due to subsidence, caused by millions using up groundwater.

I quite like visiting Jakarta. Though crowded, still a nice city.
