Trade & Investment

Indonesia Trade & Investment

Consistent, robust economic growth, a 255m-strong population and a favourable position as South-east Asia’s largest economy have driven Indonesia to become an increasingly important actor in global trade. The country’s trade with the US and China has recorded double-digit growth in recent years, and it stands as the largest market for intra-ASEAN investment, with middle-class expansion and a steady rise in domestic consumption expected to keep it at the forefront of the ASEAN trade agenda.

This chapter contains interviews with Thomas Lembong, Chairman, Indonesia Investment Coordinating Board; and Shinta Widjaja Kamdani, CEO, Sintesa Group.
