Crude price hikes affect investment in RI, BKPM says

April 23, 2008

Jakarta, April 22, 2008 – The crude price hike which happened to reach US$117 per barrel is expected to discourage investors to realize their investments in Indonesia, investment agency chief said. ANTARA News reported (PubDate: 04/22/08).

“Investors will recalculate their investments if prices are now surging,” Capital Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM) Chairman M. Lutfi said here on Monday.

He said that investors who had obtained investment approvals were forced to delay the realization of their projects because they had to recalculate their investment in the first place.

“Let`s take an example. An investment of a 2.5 million ton capacity steel factory would need US$2 billion of fund three years ago. I estimate today that a fund of US$4 billion would no longer be enough because raw material prices and costs are all increasing,” Lutfi said.

Lutfi said that the oil price hikes affected investment not only in Indonesia but also in other countries in the world.

But now, he said, no investor has proposed an extension in the realization of his or her investment approval.

“Investors are given 24 months after they were awarded the approvals to realize their investment. If they fail within the given period we would grant them an extension but up to now none of them has applied for an extension. But I think there must be investors who are recalculating their investment,” he said.

Regional forum seeks to attract investors for RI development

April 15, 2008

Jakarta , April 11, 2008 – As reporting by Aditya Suharmoko to The Jakarta Post (PubDate: 11/04/2008), President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono is set to open a regional investment forum in late May, designed to attract foreign and local investors in development projects across the country.

The Indonesian Regional Investment Forum, which will take place at the Ritz-Carlton in the Sudirman Central Busi­ness District in South Jakarta on May 26 and 27, is expected to secure at least US$6 billion, the organizer said Thursday.

“So far, more than 50 regions have reg­istered to participate in the forum,” the forum project leader Tony Gourlay told a press conference. A region must present three or more feasible projects worth a total of at least $50 million to participate in the forum. The projects will cover a range of areas, including agribusiness, planta­tions, biofuel, infrastructure, mining, power, oil, gas, property and tourism.

More than 500 foreign and local investors are scheduled to attend the forum and channel funds to provinces, cities or regencies, said Irman Gusman, the forum’s chairman and deputy speaker of the Regional Representatives Council. Irman said the forum would enable investors to discuss the projects direct­ly with leaders of provinces, cities and regions.

“The forum gives us the opportunity to improve the regions’ social and eco­nomic development … and to reduce unemployment and poverty,” he said. Tanri Abeng, a member of the forum’s advisory board, said Indonesia’s regions had abundant natural resources, as well as labor potency and high domestic demand, which could attract investors. The governor of Riau province, Rusli Zaenal, said his province had submitted three infrastructure projects to the forum. “The projects are for a turnpike — connecting Pekanbaru and Dumai — a railway line and Buton port,” Rusli said. He did not elaborate on the amount of funding needed for the projects. Riau, one of the fastest growing regions in the countiy, expects to secure Rp 223.1 billion ($24.25 million) of domestic investment and $95.2 million of foreign investment this year.

According to the Investment Coordi­nating Board, total foreign direct invest­ment in Indonesia between January and September last year reached Rp 125.94 trillion, an increase of almost 170 per­cent from Rp 74.51 trillion in 2006. Investment is estimated to have grown by 9.5 percent in the first quarter of this year from Rp 40.9 trillion in the same period in 2007, according to the Finance Ministry.

South Korea makes high technology investment in Indonesia

April 10, 2008

Jakarta, April 8, 2008 – As reported by the National News Agency thru its ANTARA News (PubDate: 04/08/08 13:41) the South Korean Ambassador to Indonesia Lee Sun-Jin said his country has expanded its investment in Indonesia to high technology industries from labour intensive investment.

“In the recent years our country’s investment in Indonesia was no longer dominated by labour intensive industries,” Lee, flanked by Councellor Yoon Moon-han, told ANTARA at his residence here on Monday.

Lee said that several South Korean companies had been operating in the business of machinaries, electronics, chemistry and expansion of natural resources processing, in addition to some existing labour intensive industries such as shoe, textile and wig industries.

Data issued by the South Korean Embassy showed that the country’s investment in Indonesia sharply rose to US$895 million in 2007 from us$320 million in 2002.

Regarding the balance of trade between the two countries, Indonesia enjoyed a US$3.3 billion surplus.

In 2007, Indonesia’s exports to South Korea reached US$9.110 billion, while the imports from South Korea reached only US$5.770 billion.

Some of Indonesia’s commodities exported to South Korea included LNG, coal, oil, forestry products, rubber, pulp and copper.

 As many as 1,200 South Korean companies operating in different sectors in Indonesia had absorbed more than 500,000 workers, he said, adding that 50 Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) were signed since Desember 2006.

Data issued by the National Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM) showed that in 2007 South Korea was the third largest investor and the seventh largest investor in Indonesia in terms of investment realization and investment approval respectively.

Lee said further the bilateral relations have been improving, among other things by increasing exchange of visits by the two countries’ leaders and officials.

South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun visited Indonesia in December 2006, while Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono made a return visit to South Korea in July 2007. “The two countries’ leaders have a strong commitment to enhance their bilateral ties in several fields including politics, investment and trade,” the envoy said.

Jakarta and Seoul signed strategic and comprehensive agreements in 2006. “The strategic partnership agreement will become a basis for expansion of the relations between the two countries,” Lee noted. As a follow up of the agreement, the two countries have set minor committees, working groups and task forces in a bid to help improve the two countries’ business relations. Asked about obstacles to efforts to lure South Korean investors to Indonesia, Lee opined that the coordination between the central government and the regional administrations as well as easier licensing need to be promoted, while sustainable capacity building should also be conducted to create a conducive investment climate.

“Political stability should also be maintained,” Lee said, adding that his country was also ready to cooperate in military affairs, including in the joint manufacture of military arms and on exchange of visits of military personnel.

The Indonesian Navy is now also using Korean-built landing ship tanks (LSTs) and trucks.
