In 2023, Japan's direct investment in Indonesia amounted to approximately US$4.6 billion(*), ranking as the fourth largest investor in Indonesia. 

This underscores the continued strong interest from Japanese corporations when investing in Indonesia. The largest investor, Singapore, recorded an investment of approximately US$15.4 billion in 2023(*).  This figure includes investments made through Singapore by investors and companies from various countries, including Japan. In the recent presidential election, Prabowo’s victory is highly anticipated. He advocates for the continuation of policies set by the incumbent President Jokowi, and it is expected that commitment to bolster the country's investment environment and the attraction of foreign investment will remain as key policy issues.

Indonesia has long been a focus for investment by Japanese companies. When investing in this region, legal and taxation considerations must be carefully considered to protect against risk. A notable characteristic of Indonesia is the constant evolution of its investment environment, including its legal and taxation systems. This seminar will provide insights on crucial legal and taxation issues relevant to Japanese companies investing in Indonesia. (*)Source: Indonesia BKPM
