BKPM: Italian Companies Eye $789.5m in Investments in Indonesia

Jakarta. Italian companies are considering making potential investments worth a combined $789.5 million in Indonesia, an official said on Tuesday.

The pledges from the 11 companies include one for $380 million in the electricity sector; $280 million in construction; $90 million in the automotive industry; $25 million in the turbine and generator industry; $10 million in shipping; and $4.5 million in telecommunications, according to Franky Sibarani, the head of Indonesia’s Investment Coordinating Body (BKPM).

“Their intentions are serious and we can follow them up immediately with the principal permit submission process to the BKPM,” Franky said.

A principal permit serves as the first step for investors going into business in Indonesia.
Franky said some of the potential investors had already found local partners, and some planned to invest in underdeveloped regio
ns such as Papua. The BKPM did not identify any of the companies.

In a series of one-on-one meetings in Milan on Monday, representatives from the companies told BKPM officials that they sought to make Indonesia their production base.
Foreign direct investment in Indonesia from Italy amounted to $6.1 million in the first half of 2015, down 74.4 percent from $23.83 million in the same period last year.
