INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - The Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM) plans to socialize a survey on Ease of Doing Business (EODB) to the regions by utilizing two task forces.

"We now have two task forces, the Economic Reform Task Force under the Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs and the Single Submission Task Force, I think we will use this task force to socialize EODB to local governments," said BKPM Chief Thomas Trikasih Lembong in Jakarta, Monday (6 / 11/2017)

He explained, for the initial phase, the government will start in areas that have pocketed large investments such as Banten and West Java.

"So the pockets of industry, tourism, commerce, where EODB improvement can have a big impact that we will prioritize," he said as quoted by Antara.


The former Minister of Trade mentioned that EODB's presentation should also be submitted to other regions as Indonesia's economy is not only centered in Jakarta and Surabaya, which is the location of the EODB survey.

Tom, familiar greeting Thomas, said the realization of socialization is likely to begin next year. There is also currently it will do the planning, including on the budget because it coincides with the preparation of the budget next year.

"Now is the time to look at what we have to budget for EODB improvements next year including the IT system budget in the Supreme Court and the judicial system, and I urge that IT budgets are always being pushed because so much can be achieved through digital and online technology," he said.

In the annual report "Doing Business 2018" released by the World Bank, Indonesia's effortless ranking in 2018 overall rose 19 ranks to 72 positions from 190 countries surveyed.
