INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - PT (Persero) PLN targets Indonesia to jump to 38th rank in one of the Bank's Ease of Doing Business (EoDB) next year indicators by increasing electricity service.

"One of the government's achievements in the World Bank's EoDB survey is in the service of getting electricity, we are ranked 61. Then, yesterday we are ranked 49. Next year we plan to be ranked 38," said Secretary Directorate General of Electricity Ministry of ESDM Agoes Triboesono in electrification seminar at UI Depok Campus, Tuesday (5/12/2017)

In the "Getting Electricity" indicator on the EoDB report released last October, Indonesia ranked 49th, Agoes added.

He said to be able to achieve these targets, PLN as a state company that takes care of all electrical activities will make a number of efforts.

"We will improve the connection procedure to obtain new electricity or new capacity building," he said.

Despite Indonesia's ranking slowly rising, Agoes said the country's position is still lagging behind other ASEAN countries.

The main ratings are occupied by Malaysia, followed by Singapore, Brunei Darussalam, Philippines and Thaland. There are also under Indonesia, there are Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar and Laos.

"Hopefully our ratings can go up, the numbers are good, the ratings are good so many people are interested in investing here, if they lose, they will choose other countries," he said as quoted by Antara.

Previously, in the annual report "Doing Business 2018" released by the World Bank, the ranking of ease of effort in Indonesia in 2018 overall rose 19 ranks to 72 positions from 190 countries surveyed.

The report investigates regulations in a country that promote both business and restrictive activities. The data in the "Doing Business 2018" report is valid from June 1, 2017.

In EODB 2017, Indonesia's position also increased 15th place from 106 in 2016 to 91. In that year, Indonesia was included in 10 countries "Top Reformers".

The World Bank establishes 10 level indicators of ease of business. Each is Starting Business, Dealing with Construction Permit, Paying Taxes, and Getting Credit.
