Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Head of the Capital Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM) Gita Wirjawan said his office would announce the negative investment list (DNI) early in 2010.
"It will be announced early next year and any change that would be made in it would be aimed at abolishing uncertainties in investment," the BKPM chief said here on Wednesday.
He said that the change in the negative investment list would be to remove uncertainties and to prevent all matters that could be multi-interpretation.
In connection with the investment climate in Indonesia, Gita said that his office would do its best to increase foreign investment by 15 percent in 2010.
"We will do our best to achieve the target though it would be not that easy," he said.
He said that about 50 percent of foreign investment in Indonesia at present came from Southeast Asian nations.
"But we will try to increase it by inviting more investment from advanced markets such as the Middle East, Europe, the United States and even Asia Pacific countries," the BKPM chief said.
In the meantime, the BKPM also set itself a target of increasing domestic investment by 15 percent in 2010. However, all of the attempt to increase investment would need supporting infrastructure facilities.(*)
