Indonesia to open investment opportunity in near-Singapore Nipah Island and others

Indonesia to open investment opportunities in twelve small and outer islands across and its welcomed by bonafide investors. However, it should accompanied by efforts to encourage domestic investors to invest.

According to the Chairman of Asosiasi Gabungan Pengusaha Perikanan Indonesia (Gapindo), Herwindo, required the involvement of local governments and local investors in managing the small and outer islands. The involvement of domestic investors, said Herwindo, more guarantees of local employment and partnerships with local communities. "Without the cooperation with local investors or local communities, investment in the outer islands has the potential to reap a problem," said Herwindo in Jakarta, Monday (29 / 3).

The same thing stated Vice Chairman of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin) Monetary Sector, Public Policy, and Fiscal Haryadi Sukamdani. He emphasized that the management of small islands and the outermost is the right steps to raise the island's economy and welfare of the people around. However, Haryadi said, governments need to socialize to domestic investors about investment opportunities. Thus, local investors can determine the pace of investment. "Development of the region by domestic investors will facilitate supervision and empowerment of communities," said Haryadi.

One problem often faced by domestic investors in the management of small islands and the outer, according Haryadi, is the lack of market networks. While foreign investors have a strong market network and can package and sell the potential of the island. Head of Research Center for Marine Research and Development Maritime Civilizations Suhana argued, if the government encourages state-owned enterprises (SOEs) are possible to manage a small island.

Three state-owned and public enterprises are now moving in the tourism business is PT Hotel Indonesia Natour, Bali Tourism Development Corporation, and PT Taman Wisata Candi (TWC) Borobudur, Prambanan, and Ratu Boko. Investment in 12 islands will be open beginning in 2010, including Nipah island in the Riau Islands, several islands in the Anambas Islands in the Riau Islands, Banda Naira in Central Maluku, and Banyuwangi in East Java.

Some foreign investors expressed interest in investing. Foreign investors are from Australia interested in Banda Naira, Singapore-based investors interested in investing and Nipah Island Anambas islands, and investors Maldives in Banyuwangi.
