The Indonesian government is currently working to revise the Negative Investment List (DNI) with the goal of having a new list by the third quarter of 2013.
AmCham Indonesia has held a briefing to discuss the DNI legislative framework, revision process, updates about the process from our staff and members, and allow for companies to provide further input on the policy.

The Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM) and the Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs (MENKO) are co-chairing the revision process and soliciting input from ministries. BKPM is also gathering input from associations, chambers of commerce, and private sector representatives for the revision.
As of late May 2013, two-thirds of relevant ministries have submitted their input, including Industry, Energy, Health, Agriculture, ICT, Transportation, Marine Affairs & Fisheries, and the National Police. BKPM is holding consultation with echelon one and two officials, aiming to submit the list to the Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs (MENKO) in June 2013 for further discussion with higher ranking officials.

This was a must-attend session for anyone in the business of connecting with today’s consumer, a generation neither defined by its age nor by its language, but rather by its mindset. To connect with Generation World, it’s not just about targeting using data points, it’s about understanding and celebrating what they share in common.
