We are very concerned about this incident, said Director of BEI, Tito Sulistio to INDUSTRY.co.id editor in Jakarta, Sunday (13/5).

Investors in the capital market are not affected by the terror movement that occurs.
Tito believes that the Surabaya bombing terror will also have no significant effect on capital market activity.
