Bank Indonesia’s West Java chief representative Herawanto expressed his confidence about the investment climate in West Java as the province had reported a USD 6.1 billion realized investment, both foreign direct investment (FDI) and domestic direct investment (DDI), from January to September. “Even during the Covid-19 crisis, the number accounted for 14.1 percent of the national realized investment,” he said.
Meanwhile, West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil asserted that the province’s quality infrastructures and competitive workforce would attract more investors. “West Java is already a home to 26 industrial parks, or 60 percent of manufacturing industries in Indonesia,” West Java Governor said. (*)
