In this issue of ASEAN Briefing:
- An Introduction to Manufacturing in Indonesia
- Locations for Manufacturing Setup in Indonesia
- Corporate Establishment in Indonesia
Choosing if, where, and how to establish foreign manufacturing operations in Indonesia can be a significant challenge. The archipelago’s low costs and rising stature in production and assembly make it an attractive location for investment. However, tapping into these opportunities requires a high degree of understanding regarding the nation’s social and regulatory cleavages and presents numerous challenges for even the most weathered investors.
While developing an understanding of Indonesia’s vast diversity may seem daunting, a number of options are available to investors which allow entry and operations to be conducted in a seamless manner. Key considerations in this regard include maintaining an up-to-date knowledge of Indonesia’s corporate establishment guidelines, and a firm understanding of the special incentives and production locations that Indonesia provides to those setting up facilities within the country.
In this issue of ASEAN Briefing, we discuss the growing importance of Indonesia as a hub for manufacturing within Southeast Asia, and provide guidance on how to select and establish operations within the country. We analyze demographics and government policies driving growth, highlight the importance of location in achieving operational success, and outline steps required to establish foreign invested manufacturing operations within Indonesia.
