GLOBAL HUB PLANS TO TRANSFORM NORTH LOMBOK

Ambitious plans to develop an international sea port in North Lombok took a step forward last month.

The “Bandar Kayangan” development will transform a 7000-hectare area in North Lombok into a global hub with facilities including an international seaport and oil refinery, as well as residential and commercial areas.
