    A New Hope for Us

    THE Cikidang Plantation Resort run by PT Bintangraya Lokalestari in the Sukabumi Regency, West Java, will be transformed into a research and tech innovation complex dubbed Bukit Algoritma. To Dhanny Handoko, owner of Bintangraya, the project is a new hope after the company’s old plan to turn its land in Cikidang into the Sukabumi Special Economic Zone continues to fail. “Not just to return to how things were, but also to become more relevant in the future in the field of technology,” Dhanny said to Tempo journalist, M. A. Murtadho, in Cikidang, Wednesday, April 14.
