10 Provinces Become The Primadonna of Foreign Investment, Chairman of DPD RI Asked The Government to Ensure Community Involvement in the Region

Must read

JAKARTA – 10 provinces in Indonesia are favored by Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), according to the recording of investment realization in 2023 which reached US$50.27 billion or around Rp774.96 trillion.

The ten provinces are DKI Jakarta, West Java, Banten, Central Java, East Java, South Sumatra, Riau, East Kalimantan, Central Sulawesi and North Maluku.

Of the 10 provinces, the largest investments are still in the mineral, plantation, oil and gas, gold, and forestry resources sectors.

Except for DKI Jakarta, which received a lot of investment in the transport, warehousing, office, telecommunications, and restaurant sectors.

“This is certainly something to be grateful for. The government must continue to improve our Easy of Doing Business (EoDB) index. So it will further accelerate the investment realization process in the years ahead,” said Chairman of Indonesian Regional Representative Council (DPD RI) AA LaNyalla Mahmud Mattalitti, Wednesday (22/5).

“But on the other hand, the government must also ensure community involvement in these areas,” he continued.

He explained that, as regional representatives, it is the duty of DPD RI to ensure that people in the regions feel the direct impact of development and investment, especially to promote general welfare in the regions.

It is because the impact that is felt by the community is one of the essence of Social Justice.

“The theory is clear. Without social justice, prosperity will not be fully felt. Therefore, I support and suggest that the government ensure community involvement schemes in directly experiencing the results of investment and economic growth in the regions,” said the former Chairman of KADIN East Java.

LaNyalla suggested that the government explore a scheme of community involvement in the investment process, through a public, private, people partnership (PPPP) scheme.

Not just public, private partnership (PPP), or PPP (government-enterprise cooperation), but there is room for people’s involvement in it.

“That way, people who live in areas or regions affected by investment become part of the economic process. I am sure that the process of building and preparing the infrastructure will be faster and smoother, because it has the support of the people in the region,” added the Doctoral candidate in Development Law.

Amid the sluggish manufacturing industry due to regional and global market disruptions, investment in the natural resource sector is still excellent for Indonesia.

This has made Indonesia record a trade balance surplus several times, contributed by the increase in natural resource commodity prices.

According to data from GoodStasts, West Java is a province with a foreign investment value of US$8.28 billion or around Rp126.37 trillion throughout 2023.

That value pushed it to the top of the list.

According to a post from the official GoodStats Instagram account, West Java has managed to return to the top position after its position was shifted by Central Sulawesi in 2022.

In 2023, the top five provinces with the highest investment levels are West Java, Central Sulawesi, North Maluku, DKI Jakarta, and East Java.
