Speaking to reporters via conference call from London on Wednesday, Bambang said there was increasing interest from British investors to invest in Indonesia, particularly driven by the country’s need to diversify investment in anticipation of the UK’s exit from the European Union.

“Investors [in the UK] are becoming more interested in [investment] prospects in Indonesia,” said Bambang, while adding that the recent confirmation by the Constitutional Court on the presidential election winner, President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo and his running mate Ma’ruf Amin, also added a sense of certainty and optimism.



In the forum, the government offered 83 projects worth US$40 billion under public-private partnership (PPP) schemes, while 30 projects were offered under nonstate budget infrastructure funding (PINA) schemes worth US$50 billion.

The National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas) estimated that the country needs investment in the infrastructure of US$429.7 billion, or equal to 6.1 percent of gross domestic product (GDP), between 2020 and 2024.
