TEMPO Interactive, Klaten:Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM) chairman, Gita Wirjawan is optimistic that Indonesian investment value increase from 10 to 15 percent this year. The reason cited was the enactment of the one-door integrated service, which will simplify the process of capital investment through the internet in every region.
The impact of this new system has started to show with an increase of investments in Jakarta ha In Batam, the investment process is being carried out through the internet. The use of electronics is expected to be carried out in all of Indonesia this year. Last year, investment in Indonesia amounted to Rp 135 trillion, in which Rp.100 trillion came from foreign investors and Rp. 35 trillion from domestic investors.
“This is different from the previous blueprint, targeted for 2012. We are accelerating it to 2010. With this simplification, investment will definitely increase,” said Gita, answering reporters’ questions after a visit to the Tirta Investama company in Klaten, Central Java, yesterday.
To publicize this integrated service, Gita will visit Central Java areas like the ones he made to Semarang, Solo and Klaten. “I met governors and regents to brainstorm about the potential targets that can be achieved by Central Java in order to improve coordination between the central and regional governments,” he said.
Samiaji, Klaten Deputy Regent, proposed several investment schemes to Gita, for example in the field of dairy cattle breeding, steel foundry and crafts. Gita had visited Tirta Investama Company, a domestic and foreign joint venture dealing in potable water production.
