Indonesia Investment

Update 2007

Wednesday, May 9, 2007

 

Diamond Room 1 Nikko Hotel Jakarta.

 

 

BACKGROUND

The Indonesia parliament has just enacted the new Investment Law at March 29, 2007.

 

This new law is to amend the old one of the Law No. 1 of 1967 regarding The Foreign Direct Investment and Law No. 6 of 1968 regarding The Domestic Direct Investment as amended recently by Law No. 12 of 1970. The new Investment Law aims at simplification of investment-related procedures and certain other arrangements including adoption of one-roof services. The new law has accommodated internationally recognized standard, practice and principles of investment. The law, as an example, ensures that equal treatment will be accorded to investors irrespective of their nationalities. Moreover, the government of Indonesia, through this law, also attaches importance to the protection from nationalization and xpropriation. When it happens, the government will offer compensation. Therefore, the government also guarantees a right to transfer and repatriate, in term of acceptable foreign currencies. In addition going to international arbitration in order to settle investment disputes is a part of the new investment law.

 

Some investment facilities or incentives in the form of income tax deduction and exemption for certain time are made available for new investors or existing investors who extend their investment, new investment entering designated "pioneer" industries, or investor cooperating with small medium enterprises, and investment for specified target pursuant to the New Investment Law. The investment facilities also include the deduction or exemption from import duty for capital goods and raw material that’s not produced in Indonesia.

 

However, the investment law is not the sole panacea to improve the investment climate. There are some old problems that must be solved to improve investment climate in Indonesia i.e. industrial relation and taxation matters. Right now the Indonesia parliament is still working hard to revise the Manpower Law and Taxes Laws. Business players are waiting for the enactment of the Laws.

 

All topics said above will be covered in the exclusive seminar of Indonesia

Investment Update 2007 “New Investment Law: Opportunities & Challenges for

Doing Business in Indonesia” conducted by Piesta Consulting - an associated member of KS International & Finch Freeman Pty Ltd.
