In this issue

  • Indonesia’s Electric Battery Industrial Strategy
  • Incentives for Manufacturing in Indonesia
  • Choosing the Right Business Entity

Indonesia is looking to take advantage of having the world’s largest deposits of nickel to develop an integrated domestic electric vehicle supply chain. The government aims to become the world’s third-largest producer of electric batteries by 2027 and produce approximately 140GWh per year of EV battery capacity by 2030.

As such, businesses will find investment opportunities throughout Indonesia’s EV supply chain, whether it is investments in nickel smelters or establishing manufacturing operations for EV batteries and vehicles.

In this issue of the ASEAN Briefing magazine, we provide an overview of Indonesia’s EV battery industry before exploring the various incentives offered by the government. Finally, we discuss the type of business entity foreign investors should use when entering this industry.
