Indonesia looks for investment opportunities in new markets
Indonesia wants to establish more trade representative offices abroad, seeking new opportunities in ‘non-traditional’ economies, according to an official from the Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM). These would include deeper exploration of locations such as Latin America, Abu Dhabi, Shanghai and Beijing. As much as Indonesia would benefit from locations in all countries, current ‘limited human resources’ makes it more efficient to increase staff capacity and building English skills in the few with greater potential.
Indonesia already has investment representatives in Los Angeles, Singapore, London, Sydney, Tokyo and Taipei.
