“So they know now the investment facilities provided in Indonesia, the government’s support, and what kinds of support from us as the developer of industrial estates. We raise their interest to see the great potentials to invest in Indonesia, especially in Jababeka Group’s industrial estates in Kendal, Morotai, Cikarang, and Tanjung Lesung,” she added.
