"The dukon is with the state budget, non-dukon with the new financing system, called service-based periodic payments," said Budi.

"So we have 30% capital then because the traffic is still very small, the government will return our investment for 10 years," he added.

Budi added, that way (non-dukon) will be more relaxed in the use of the State Budget (APBN).
"Maybe it will be used a lot (this way) in the future, because there are choices in the budget. So 30% of capital, 70% of loans will be given for 10 years," he said.
