INDUSTRY.co.id - Singapore, Entering the political year in Indonesia in 2024, the Ministry of Investment/Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM) organized an Investment Forum, Friday (8/12), in Singapore, focusing on the theme "Indonesia's Investment Trends 2024 and Green Economic Opportunities." The forum featured the Minister of Investment/Head of BKPM Bahlil Lahadalia and the Indonesian Ambassador to Singapore, Suryo Pratomo, as key speakers.

He emphasized Indonesia's openness to investors from all countries, not offering special privileges to specific nations. 

“Despite facing political events, I am confident that politics wouldn't hinder investments and the government will keep facilitating business permits through the Online Single Submission (OSS) Indonesia application," said Bahlil.

Indonesian Ambassador to Singapore Suryo Pratomo added that Indonesia, rich in natural resources, holds great potential. However, he stressed the importance of focusing on environmentally sustainable industries and ensuring well-being for future generations.
