After gaining independence in 1945, Indonesia experienced rapid industrialization during the 1970s on the back of strong oil exports before labor-intensive industries became the new engine of growth in the late 1980s. This economic growth came to a sudden halt at the onset of the 1997-1998 Asian financial crisis. Since the crisis, the country has implemented sound fiscal policies and political reforms, which have reduced public debt and improved the investment climate.

The government has vowed to continue implementing prudent macroeconomic policies and structural reforms to further enhance the ease of doing business and improve the country’s investment climate. These include issuing various tax incentives as well as widening the number of positions open to expatriate workers.

This publication, designed to introduce the fundamentals of investing in Indonesia, was compiled by the experts at Dezan Shira & Associates, a specialist foreign direct investment practice, providing corporate establishmentbusiness intelligencetax advisory and complianceaccountingpayrolldue diligence and financial review services to multinationals investing in emerging Asia.
