President urges regional heads to facilitate investors


Jakarta — President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) has called on regional heads to facilitate investors, who will invest in export-import oriented and import-substitution sectors. “The current account balance and our trade balance are still in deficit, as the problem is with investment,” President Jokowi remarked here on Thursday (26/07). Jokowi made the statement while opening the 2018 National Coordination MeetingĀ of Inflation Control themed “Accelerating Infrastructure Development to Realize Price Stability and Inclusive Economic Growth.” Numerous Working Cabinet ministers, heads of Bank Indonesia, and several regional heads attended the meeting. Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs Darmin Nasution as chairman of Inflation Control Team; Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs Luhut Binsar Panjaitan, and Home Affairs Minister Tjahjo Kumolo were also present on the occasion. “The heads of regions should not ask all kinds of questions to investors keen on investing in the region but instead offer them ease to invest,” Jokowi remarked.
