the turning of 100,000 unit of healthy modest houses official
at Graha Indah Lamongan Real Estate, Tuesday (17 Feb 2009), President
Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono convey, one way so that Indonesian
economy can still survive in the middle of global recession
is that with making domestic market alive.
With the languid of export markets, beside
switching from product orientation and export market, also
focusing on domestic market. According to President Bambang
Susilo Yudhoyono, with the world economy currenty undergoing
global recession, all exports aredown. This matter occur because
the target country of export such as United States and Europe
are currently lanquid. Any country that depend on export have
gone bankrupt. While Indonesia, not totaly dependent on export,
Indonesian economy uses many domestic market, thus still can
The President said "Even this recession has impact on
Indonesia, we're still able to maintain at certain level. In
the year 2007, economy growth was 6,3%, on the other hand other
countries have fallen to a minus level in year 2008 , we indeed
have declined 0,2% to 6,1%. Hopefully in this year we can still
manage so that reduction would not be too sharp".
Even if domestic economy kept on going, including if Real
Estate Indonesia (REI) keep on building houses, then downstream
effort will grow. From aspects of business, cement, nails,
sand, etc will grow as well.
"If economy in this country keep on going although the world
is still ill, no need to be afraid to face it. With hard labor, innovation,
don't talk too much and kick the corruption to the sea, we will be
able to go past it," said the President.
The President hope this year and the years to come will not have
many natural disaster engulf this country so that Indonesia can grow
in real estate, food, irrigation, dam, procure seeds, and fertilizer
that are managed as well as possible.
Menteri Negara Perumahan Rakyat (Minister of State Public Housing), M.
Yusuf Asy'ari few moments ago said, that since President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono
activated its State of the Public Housing Ministry, its part has publish 92 policies
in housing sector including 23 in process of preparation.
One of the regulation and positively greeted
in circle of developers by the publishing of PPH final one
percent for Simple Healthy Home (Rumah Sederhana Sehat / Rsh)
development and Simple Stack House Own (Rumah Susun Sederhana
Milik / Rusunami) that poured through PP No. 71 year 2008.
At this moment, the government is in the middle of preparing
a new PP for PPN Output (State Income Tax Output) that is charged
at the receival of work from material / service provider (contractor)
to developer because all this time what is known is only PPN
Input (State Income Tax Input).
In the circle of developers either from Persatuan Perusahaan
Real Estate Indonesia / REI (United Companies of Real Estate
Indonesia) or Asosiasi Pengembang Perumahan seluruh Indonesia
/ Apersi ( Association of Real Estate Developer in all of Indonesia)
welcome well the plan of PPN Output because it can be a guarantee
to build and develop Rusunami and Rsh.
All this time what is know as facilities from from PPN that
is charge to Rsh and Rusunami buyer that's supposedly imposed
10%from selling price, but because there's PPN Output available,
will bring profit to developer, he explained.
"If this policy issued out, it will trim production price of
Rsh as well as Rusunami. If it is practiced well, then it will push
large size developer to seriously go into goverment program," he
Menpera also state that, the main target of government in developing
houses according to Rencana Pemerintah Jangka Menengah / RPJM (Plan
of Government for Intermediate Span ) 2004-2009 have already been
achieved this year.
Like the new program of houses decent to live in, 1,265,000 units
that cover Rsh subsidies, Rsh and Rumah Sederhana non subsidies (Simple
House Non-Subsidies), also the special house post disaster, until
the end of 2008, already achieved 1,266,753 unit (100,14 percent),
While for 2009, it is estimated to still able to produce 338,960
new houses decent to live in, that consist of 170,000 units Rsh subsidies
and Rsh/Rs non subsidies. For Rumah Susun Sederhana Sewa
/ Rusunawa (Simple Stack House for Rent) program, from target of
60,000 units only achieved 34,400 unit (57,33 percent) and 2009 the
gap will be minimized 86,93 percent from target, he said.
In regard to Rusunami target, Menpera said, the correspond stated
in RPJM as many as 25,000 units to the end of 2008 only 6,800 units
realized from Rusunami Cengkareng.
"But I am optimistic the target will be achieved because there
are new supply only need to be tied in with banking at least another
31,600 units from Rusunami located in cawang, Cibubur, and Modernland
tanggerang," he explained.
Then, for rumah swadaya (house built by community), Menpera said,
from target of 3,600,000 units, at this moment already achieved
3.280.618 units (91,13 percent) while in year 2009, it is estimated
it will add 691.000 units to become 3.971.618 (110,32 percent).
For district regulation from total of 79 hectar to become target,
only 39 hectar realized and even if can be pursued in year 2009,
only 49 hectar (62,03 percent) can be achieved.
Menpera also said, the truth is that many districts ready to build
that is available, only left stimulant in the form of Public Infrastructure
fund and utility as well as policy like the Maja district in Tanggerang
The government for real estate sector 2009 will seriously prove
subsidy allocation that is made available to achieve Rp2,5 trillion,
where as at the years before the available allocation is not more
than Rp300 milyar per year.
This allocation of subsidy fund need assistant fund from bank which
all this time only Bank BTN can be able to provide, other banks such
as Bank BRI and BNR are expected to be interested to go along in
Menpera promises will keep on increasing the capability of BTN credit
in distributing KPR subsidies including with putting Bapertarum-PNS
Rp 2 trillion fund and Jamsostek Rp 1 trillion fund in place.
This step at least will help BTN in distributing credit subsidy
because if only depending on BTN fund, the Rp 2,5 trillion find will
be hard to absorbed, he explained.
Even admitted, the Rp 2,5 trillion fund are not solely all new credits,
partially are from subsidy claim arrears 2008, along that's destined
for house development that is build by the community (swadaya). Futhermore,
Menpera said, government will keep on creating incentives including
the ease of licensing and reduction of taxes, with the optimization
of urban land use.
Relating to land, Menpera has set price of Rp 1 million per meter
square for Rusunami land development which is managed by Regulation
of Minister of Finance No. 348 year 2008. In the middle of this crisis,
his side will push banking as well as developer so they can keep
on participate in developing people's houses through series of policies.
While Deputy of Formal House Kemenpera, Zulfi Syarif Koto, said,
the difficulty to achieve target of Rusunawa closely related with
availability for Rusunawa itself because post budget Rusunawa also
exist in budget of PU Department.
"Waiting list from Pemerintah Daerah / Pemda (Local Government)
and Perguruan Tinggi (High Institution) made for Rusunawa actually
is in a long line but because the budget is limited, at the end we
use priority scale," he stated.
Zulfi said, to use PU Department's Rusunawa budget won't also be
possbile because the difference of use if in post Kemenpera for new
units, while post Departemen Ru is for slum settlement program.
Head of Credit Management Division, Budi Hatono said, growth of
KPR subsidy increase 30 percent to reach Rp 14 trillion in 2008 while
total credit increase 40 percent to Rp 31,2 trillion.
Budi estimated that BTN credit is capable to grow around 10 to 15
percent in 2009 with economy growth assumption of 4,5 to 5 percent,
growth volume export 1-2percent, and inflation under one digit.
During that time, Main Director of Bank BTN Iqbal said, the interest
rate of BTN credit include Kredit Kepemilikan Rumah / KPR (Home Ownership
Loan) that at this time range from 15 to 16 percent, the distribution
is implemented carefully to protect quality of credit.
The credit growth distributed by BTN in 2009 is estimated to be
lower than 2008 by putting prudent principle forward, including non
performing loan (NPL) ratio, he explained.
The tight money policy in BTN make this company delay the publishing
of obligation because with the interest now, indeed will not attract
as if forced into, he explained.
Even as result of this policy make IPO 2009 plan be re-scheduled
on the 4th quarter of 2009, while actually the case is BTN really
hopeful that it can turn into reality to strengthen credit distribution,
In purpose of cutting cost of fund, BTN will take advantage of fund
facility from PT. Sarana Multigriya Financial (SMF) as much as Rp
500 milyar including taking advantage of asset security.
The asset security itself is using Kontrak Investasi Kolektif Beragunan
Asset / KIKEBA (Collective Investment Contract with Warrant) pattern
which is in capital markets category on 22 December 2008 with rating
of AAA (moody Indonesia), he explained.
The KPR requirement which will be securitized is in smooth category,
the time left around 4-5 years, with loan value at least 80 percent,
all equipped with document and insurance.
