The Jakarta Mass Rapid Transit system, supported by the Japanese government with an ODA loan under the Special Terms for Economic Partnership (STEP) with MRTJ, is a project that has been strongly promoted by Indonesian president Joko Widodo since he was the governor of Jakarta, and is aimed to mitigate the traffic congestion, which has resulted from the recent rapid economic growth of the country. The project is also targeted to enhance the basic infrastructure development to improve the environment for further investment in the country.
