TEMPO.CO, JakartaCoordinating Minister for Maritime and Investment Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan explained four requirements for investors to invest in Indonesia. Luhut believed those conditions will provide benefits to the country, as well as the sustainability of the people’s lives.

“First, we will not accept an investment if investors do not bring first-class technology,” said Luhut during his speech as a keynote speaker at Institute for Essential Service Reform in Jakarta, Tuesday, November 19.

He assured no investor will offer second-class technology to the country.

Secondly, Luhut added, investors are required to carry out the transfer of technology.

According to the Coordinating Minister, this breakthrough will affect domestic workers as they will be exposed to new technology entering the country.

Luhut explained that the government is building a lithium battery project in Morowali, Central Sulawesi. The factory will use 70 percent of raw material from the archipelago.

The government eyes to own lithium batteries for electric vehicles in 2021 or 2022 following the factory construction.

Additionally, the third requirement is the investment must be packed with added value for Indonesia, such as Freeport, which its huge added value was just known recently. 

The last requirement is investors must be willing to establish a business to business (B2B) partnership, Luhut Pandjaitan concluded.
