Ja­panese in­vestors ex­press in­ter­est in In­done­sia

The Nation - - AEC -

In­done­sia’s Vice Pres­i­dent Jusuf Kalla has said a num­ber of Ja­panese com­pa­nies and banks have ex­pressed in­ter­est in in­vest­ing in In­done­sia.

The in­ter­est was ex­pressed on the side­lines of the In­ter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on The Fu­ture of Asia held from June 10 to 13 in Tokyo.

“Al­most all com­pa­nies ex­pressed a de­sire to in­crease their in­vest­ments, from bank­ing to man­u­fac­tur­ing in­dus­tries,” Kalla said, as quoted by tempo.co.

Dur­ing the con­fer­ence, Kalla met with, among oth­ers, rep­re­sen­ta­tives of MUFG Bank Ltd and Marubeni Cor­po­ra­tion as well as Ja­pan-In­done­sia As­so­ci­a­tion chair­man Ya­suo Fukuda.

Kalla said he told Ja­panese busi­ness­peo­ple that the au­to­mo­tive in­dus­try in­vested sig­nif­i­cant funds in In­done­sia and claimed that sev­eral com­pa­nies wanted to in­vest in this sec­tor. The bank­ing in­dus­try was also at­trac­tive to Ja­panese in­vestors, said Kalla. Ja­panese in­ter­est in the In­done­sian bank­ing sec­tor has been shown by the plans of ma­jor Ja­panese lenders to ac­quire two In­done­sian banks. – The Jakarta Post
