Indonesia is a giant on the rise; predicted to be the fifth largest economy (PPP) by 2030 and already today accounting for more than 40 percent of total ASEAN-6 countries’ GDP. Growth prospects continue to be strong, mainly driven by mega investments in infrastructure, a shift to more value-add manufacturing and a rapidly growing consumer class. The governments’ ambitious reform agenda have significantly improved business climate, and FDI levels have more than tripled in the last decade.
Despite the big numbers and evident opportunities, Swedish companies have in recent years invested far less in Indonesia compared to other countries in the region, and also far less compared with companies from most other EU countries. Is Swedish companies losing out on the growth opportunities, or are the obstacles for growth that still remains in Indonesia still reason to hold back?
Nordea’s Chief Economist Amy Zhuang and Anders Wickberg, Trade Commissioner to Indonesia at Business Sweden, will present key opportunities for Swedish companies in Indonesia and also discuss the perceived challenges for doing business in the country. The seminar will also showcase examples how successful companies have worked to overcome the obstacles and identified an Indonesian ‘formula for growth’.
