    President Joko Widodo or Jokowi ensured that 7 foreign companies leaving from other countries entered Indonesia. Five companies came from China and the other two came from South Korea and Japan.

    Jokowi said that currently there are 119 potential companies that will relocate from China. As many as 7 companies are confirmed to have entered and 17 companies already have a large commitment to follow.

    “17 companies have entered 60 percent progress. So, I ask that they be served and pursued and delivered facilities that we can provide to them,” said Jokowi.

    The President reminded that he did not want last year’s events to be repeated. Last year Indonesia was only biting its fingers when 33 companies relocated from China.

    One company that has stated its commitment is LG Chemical with an investment value of US$ 9.8 billion, and potential employment of 14,000 people.

    Here is a list of 7 companies that ensure relocation to Indonesia based on BKPM data:
