Jakarta (ANTARA News/Asia Pulse) - A new presidential regulation imposes restrictions on foreign retailing companies allowing them to operate only in hypermarkets to protect Indonesia's local retailing industry.

Under the regulation foreign retailing companies are not allowed to have supermarkets with floor space of less than 1,200 square meters and department stores with floor space of less than 2,000 square meters.

The regulation is part of the new Investment Negative List, which bans foreign investors from operating in 47 business areas in the country.

no matter how many times I read stuff like this it still astounds me. The only people that suffer when restrictions are imposed is the Indonesian consumer

Out of interest how does this effect the buyout of Alfa Mart?

I just wish the government would make its frigging mind up. First Kalla's calling all foreign investors pussies for not having the guts to invest here and now this. They haven't a clue. Investment Negative List? Jesus.

What this country needs is a Tony Blair to bring a bit of consistency to the government message
