Jakarta to relocate poultry facilities
Plans are underway in Indonesia's largest city, Jakarta. The city
administration is preparing to relocate bird markets and poultry storage and
slaughtering facilities city-wide, with the aim of preventing further outbreaks
of bird flu during the rainy season.
Deden Supriadi, assistant to the city secretary for economics, said that
the selected areas for slaughterhouses are Cakung and Rawa Kepiting in East
Jakarta. Storage facilities and bird markets will be relocated to Sukapura in
North Jakarta and Cibubur in East Jakarta.
The relocation plan was discussed with the Animal Husbandry and Fisheries
Agency and traditional market operators PD Pasar Jaya and PD Darma Jaya.
"The agency will handle the relocation of storage facilities, Pasar Jaya
will be responsible for the relocation of slaughterhouses and Darma Jaya will
prepare the infrastructure for the new slaughterhouses," said Deden
According to the husbandry and fisheries agency, there are more than 700
poultry slaughtering facilities in the city, two-thirds of which are located in
Central and East Jakarta.
