About Batam

Batam is a city with a strategic location on international shipping routes and is very close to Singapore and Malaysia. Batam Island was once a battlefield for Admiral Hang Nadim’s struggle against invaders in the 1960s, where Batam Island acted as a petroleum logistics base. There is only one piece of literature that mentions the name Batam, namely the London Treaty which regulated the division of territory between the Netherlands and England. However, according to cruisers from China, this island has been inhabited since 231 AD when Singapore was still called Pulau Ujung. According to the Batam City Population and Civil Registry Service, by the end of 2023 the population of Batam will reach 1,260,785 people, with a density of 1,200 people/km². Batam City is part of the Batam–Bintan–Karimun (BBK) special free trade area.  

Batam City has an impressive growth rate. Infrastructure development carried out in this city is often accompanied by icons or landmarks created to strengthen the identity of an area. One of the icons that is the center of attention for immigrants is the Barelang Bridge, which connects Batam, Rempang and Galang, which was built in 1992 and completed in 1998. This bridge was build based on the initiation of the former president BJ Habibie, so this bridge can also be referred to as the Habibie Bridge.
