"We are studying, and hope that later during the visit of the President there will be an overview of the investment. The plan is indeed quite large, but they asked for confidential first, they ask for it like that, "said Harjanto.

A little bit of Hyundai's request to invest in the country, Harjanto leaked a little, the South Korean brand had already begun to study and had some hope in the government.

"The point is that we have given the wishlist to us, only a few of their requests that we see, most of them say they have been accommodated, but there are indeed some issues that were thrown at us," he said.

"Like land, we will facilitate the most suitable land for the industry. But they expect it to be free, it's difficult for us, but if we find a very competitive place for the land, we can provide it, we can provide it, "said Harjanto.

While the Chairman of the Standing Committee of the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KADIN) for South Korea, Jongkie D Sugiarto, also said that Hyundai requested recommendations for land. However, it does not speak far about when and the amount of investment.

"Yes, we help too, find land and provide information. They will determine later. Then the data about the market, "said Jongkie.
