JFCC SPEAKER EVENT: Chairman of the Indonesia Investment Coordinating Board Bahlil Lahadalia

Wed, 10 Mar 2021

Dear members and friends,

As Indonesia unrolls its COVID-19 vaccination programme, the government is counting on the pandemic-hit economy also getting a shot in the arm from a rise in foreign investment.

The flagship job creation law is intended to help encourage this by streamlining regulations, opening up more sectors to foreign investment and loosening labour rules blamed for holding back Southeast Asia’s biggest economy.

Still, critics say the bill benefits business too much and could put Indonesia’s environment at further risk and hurt labour protection.

While Indonesia has been attracting investment in some areas including its nickel sector, it remains to be seen whether the new bill will really be a game changer and help the country beat out strong competition from neighbours.

Please join us for what promises to be a lively discussion on a vital economic issue for Indonesia.
