Port and shipping business players pin their hope on new directors of PT Pelabuhan Indonesia II and III for a more transparent financial management. Chairman of Indonesia National Shipowners Association (INSA) Carmelita Hartoto said she fully supports the new management of PT Pelabuhan Indonesia II (Pelindo II) and Pelindo III.
She is optimistic Pelindo II and III can be more transparent since they are lead by two new president directors with strong financial backgrounds. President Director of Pelindo II Elvyn G Masasya is a former investment director of PT Jamsostek and former director of PT Bank Permata, whereas President Director of Pelindo III Orias Petrus Moedak is a former financial director of Pelindo II.
“I hope that the new directors of both Pelindo II and Pelindo III along with their new president directors can address the financial issue of their respective companies. I really hope they can be more transparent, even so that he [Orias Petrus Moedak] is a former financial director of Pelindo II,” Carmelita said.
Carmelita, also Deputy Chairman of Indonesia Trade and Industry Chamber Transport Division, said Orias certainly has experience in managing finance in a more transparent way during his term in Pelindo II.
“He has experience. So, I’m not too worried [about it], he can actually make Pelindo III better,” Carmelita noted.
