Indonesia is an increasingly attractive investment destination due to the growing size of its domestic and regional market, vast natural resources, and a young and growing workforce. Indonesia has also been working on creating investor-friendly policies and reducing bureaucracy to attract more investment. A diverse range of Canadian firms have invested over $3.2 billion in Indonesia.
The TPSA project has identified promising investment opportunities for Canadian business in Indonesia. We are working with the Investment Coordinating Board of Indonesia (BKPM) to bring the opportunities to qualifying Canadian companies with potential for FDI into Indonesia.
Why invest in Indonesia?
Canada and Indonesia are both key players in global FDI. Canada has been the 9th largest source of greenfield FDI projects worldwide in the three years from 2013 to 2015 according to fDi Markets. FDI outward flows from Canada are forecast by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) to grow from $50 billion in 2015 to reach nearly $80 billion in 2020. FDI flows into Indonesia (from all countries) are forecast by the EIU to increase from $19 billion in 2015 to $32 billion in 2020. Indonesia is forecast to be one of the world’s fastest growing economies with the EIU forecasting annual GDP growth of 5.2% from 2016 to 2020.
