Purbalingga regency in Central Java has been singled out as the most investor-friendly of the 35 regencies and municipalities in the province, an official said Wednesday.

Purbalingga administration spokesman Prayitno said the achievement was a great improvement from the regency’s ranking as the fifth-poorest regency in the province 10 years ago.

“Things have turned around, and now we’re in the top five with the lowest poverty rates and top as a regency in favor of investment,” Prayitno told The Jakarta Post.

Purbalingga Regent Triyono said the biggest foreign investment in Purbalingga was in producing wigs and fake eyelashes. The industry includes 19 foreign companies, mostly from South Korea.

“Come and invest in Purbalingga because investing here is like doing business in your own hometown,” he said, adding that if possible, he would ask pop singer Madonna to star in the commercial.

“Why Madonna? Because many famous singers, including Madonna, use false eyelashes made in Purbalingga.”
