Under a government initiative called the GMT+8 Program, the Indonesian government is looking at the possibility of merging Indonesia’s three different time zones into one (GMT+8).

The plan is still in its initial stage and may require prior approvals from Parliament. Further details, including any tentative implementation date, are not yet available.

We continue to monitor the situation and will provide more information when it becomes available.
