Based on Government Regulation (PP) No. 26/2012, PT Jababeka Tbk has mandated to develop Special Economic Zone in Tanjung Lesung. Located 170 kilometers from Jakarta, through Jakarta–Tangerang Toll Road and then Tangerang–Merak Toll Road and small road to Tanjung Lesung needs 4 to 5 hours. So, the company will build 83 kilometers highway from Serang to Panimbang, because to build toll road will be difficult with the land acquisitions. An airstrip in Panimbang is also considered, because it only need 10 minutes to Tanjung Lesung. The company has got partners to make Cruise Port in 50 hectares area and will be built soon.
