Monday (22 Feb’16), at the Presidential Palace, President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) launched the Ease of Investment with Immediate Construction Program (KLIK) in certain industrial estatesas well as the improvement of investment permit services for infrastructure. KLIK that can be obtained in 14 designated industrial estates in Indonesia which is the third reform by President Jokowi’s administration to attract investments into Indonesia. The KLIK program is a follow up from the two predecessor reforms i.e. the One Stop Services (Pelayanan Terpadu Satu Pintu), launched January 2015, as well as “three hours investment licencing” launched January 2016.
What is the ease here? Investors whose investments are within industrial estates, appointed by the government in this KLIK program, can immediately undertake construction of the factory. The company may in parallel apply Building Permit (IMB), environmental permit and other required permits, which should be acquired prior to commercial production. This policy speeds up the initial setup of the company simultaneously eliminating setup complexities.
