The companies plan to build 650 clinics and 23 hospitals across West Java in 23 years.

Indonesian companies have signed a $1b agreement with Australian healthcare providers Docta and Aspen Medical to build hospitals and clinics in West Java, officials said on Monday.

State-owned infrastructure company Jasa Sarana signed a shareholder agreement with Docta Aspen and Indonesian health equipment distributor Rajawali Nusindo at this week’s West Java Investment Summit 2020, according to a document showing a list of agreements provided by a provincial official.

Indonesia’s Investment Coordinating Board Chairman Bahlil Lahadalia praised the $1b agreement and told a news conference that healthcare investment was a top priority for Southeast Asia’s biggest economy.

According to Docta’s website, the company established a joint venture company with Aspen Medical to execute a 23-year plan to build 650 primary care clinics and 23 hospitals across West Java in cooperation with the local government, health department and Jasa Sarana.
