With such ease, the Government hopes that investment climate in Indonesia will be more friendly for investors so investors will invest in Indonesia.

Until first quarter 2018, the ESDM Ministry has also simplified / revoked 186 regulation / certification / recommendation / licensing which is considered to inhibit investment.

Arcandra said the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources as a policy maker ensures the business process runs better and transparent, as evidenced by the number of licenses that have been cut the investment in Indonesia can be more attractive to investors including from Poland.

"We will always be prepared to listen to the complaints faced by investors, and will strive to create a transparent and accountable business flow, and for polish companies currently operating in Indonesia to understand the flow of business in Indonesia to join local companies" explained Arcandra.

Deputy Minister of Energy of Poland, Grzegorz Tobiszowski, who is also the leader of the delegation, said his readiness to cooperate with the Indonesian government.

In addition to investment, Grzegorz also offers student exchanges in the fields of energy and mining. The ESDM vice minister welcomes the offer from the Polish Deputy Minister, as student exchange has a positive impact on culture, technology and enhancing bilateral cooperation between Indonesia and Poland.
