INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Minister of Industry Airlangga Hartarto said as regulated in Law 3/2014 the government continues to socialize so that investors who want to open the industry can enter the industrial area.

"The target of the investment government is expected to be able to enter the industrial zone so that the environmental problems, the workforce can be handled better," said Minister of Industry "Investment Outlook" related to the development of the integrated industrial zone in Jakarta on Tuesday (10/10/2017)

The minister said the pharmaceutical industry does have a number of challenges such as the need for a clinical trial (CT) that requires the export of specimens. However, it has a positive impact because it is part of research and development of intellectual property rights of Indonesia.

In contrast, Airlangga mentioned the potential of the pharmaceutical industry to be developed due to the National Health Insurance program.

"We have a wide health insurance capability to cover 170 million people, which could encourage the growth of the pharmaceutical industry," he said.

Meanwhile, the Joint Venture (GP) of Pharmaceuticals acknowledged that it is difficult to transfer the industry to industrial zones as mandated by Law No. 3 of 2014 on Industry requiring all industrial activities to be carried out within the region.

"We are interested in entry if there is an industrial area that gives the status of 'clean', but move the industry to the industrial estate is very heavy because we ourselves have been bothered with new rules," said Chairman of GP Farmasi Tirto Kusnadi
