Not only focusing on the builders of JTTS alone, but Hutama Karya is also still present to connect the goodness with other infrastructure development. "The development of the construction industry has a strategic role as a driver of national economic growth. The right and quick step to take advantage of opportunities and company performance efficiency is the key to facing local and global competition, both with fellow SOEs, the private sector, to foreign contractors, "explained Bintang.
