With the employment creation law, investment in Indonesia can increase. In 2021, the realization of investment was 900 trillion rupiah and the target for 2022 is 1,200 trillion rupiah. This is very good because the more investment, the more foreign exchange that comes in.

Coordinating Minister for the Economy Airlangga Hartarto stated that the Job Creation Law would increase business and investment in Indonesia. The Job Creation Law has indeed become a ‘weapon’ to increase the entry of foreign investors into Indonesia. This is because the Job Creation Law provides easy licensing arrangements that can be done online through the Online Single Submission (OSS).

Airlangga also said, while the Job Creation Law will remain in effect, so will the Investment Management Agency (LPI). Activities there will not stop because the job creation law must be revised. Instead, LPI received a total capital injection of Rp 75 billion so that it could work well and manage investments professionally.

Currently, the government has issued 47 Government Regulations (PP) and 4 Presidential Regulations (Perpres) as derivative regulations of the Job Creation Law. The regulation also regulates technically the ease of doing business, taxation, MSMEs and so on. Of course, this revision is expected so that the Job Creation Law will be more perfect and become a win-win solution for entrepreneurs and their workers, especially in the employment cluster.

In addition, the investment cluster is also improved in order to really facilitate the entry of foreign investors into Indonesia so that employment opportunities will be more open and the economic sector in Indonesia, especially in the regions, is getting better.

Regional economic growth must of course be supported by regulations that are able to attract investors as investors. The existence of investment in the regions will of course improve the economy and make this an effort to distribute the development of an Indonesian-centric economic sector.
