Indonesia’s latest mage-project, a mega resort town named Lido city, is set to incorporate a data centre and tech park to cater to the IT needs of the city.

MNC Group is leading the data centre project part of a Techno Park in the resort city via its real estate development subsidiary PT MNC Land Tbk.

PT MNC Land Lido, a further subsidiary but this time of PT MNC Land Tbk, has entered into a memorandum of understanding with PT Infokom Elektrindo, a business unit of PT Global Mediacom Tbk, to develop the infrastructure.
