Tata Motors' Presence in Indonesia

Tata Motors may set up Nano production facility in Indonesia

Tata Motors Ltd might build a factory to produce its Nano small car in Indonesia, one of the fastest expanding markets in Asia.

The firm is conducting a feasibility study to establish a facility in Jakarta, three people familiar with the company’s plan said on condition of anonymity.

Should the plan come to fruition, it will help the company not only get a foothold in the large but untapped market of Indonesia, but also address the adjoining markets of Thailand, Malaysia and the Philippines.

Robust economic growth, rising consumer confidence levels and affordable credit made 2010 a record year for all the four markets in South-East Asia.

Sales of light vehicle expanded 36% to 2.23 million units compared with a year ago, according to a January report on the automotive market in the Asean region by JD Power and Associates, a forecast and research firm.

“Indonesia is almost like Indian market,” said Abdul Majeed, auto practice leader at consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers Llp.

The fact that it has a large rural population will help sales of Nano, touted as the world’s cheapest car, Majeed added.

Tata Motors was earlier planning to expand its facility in Thailand where it makes the Xenon and Ace small trucks, to make room for the Nano. However, those plans have now been shelved in favour of Indonesia, according to one of the three persons cited above.

Indonesia's Astra Pins Hopes on Inexpensive Cars

From Wall Street Journal Feb 14, 2013 PT Astra International plans to continue dominating Indonesia's booming car and motorcycle markets by spending billions of dollars on expansion and becoming the first auto maker to sell a car priced to reach the country's emerging middle class. Astra controls 54% of the passenger-car market through joint ventures with Japan's Toyota Motor Corp., Daihatsu Motor Co. and Isuzu Motor Ltd., and holds 58% of the motorcycle-and-scooter market through a joint venture with Honda Motor Co.  To expand the pool of Indonesians who can afford a car, Astra plans next quarter to introduce models with sticker prices as low as $8,000 through its joint ventures with Toyota and Daihatsu. Currently, the least-expensive passenger cars in Indonesia sell for at least $12,000. "We will be the first offering affordable vehicles," he said. "This year, [auto-sales growth] should at the very least be flat, provided this ne

Goverment to Build New Port in Subang or Indramayu

From The Jakarta Post April 2, 2015 The government has changed its plan to build a new port in Cilamaya and is seeking a better location in Subang or Indramayu, West Java. Vice President Jusuf Kalla said the government needed to build a new port but it would not be in Cilamaya. The Vice President, who visited Cilamaya with several ministers, including Coordinating Maritime Affairs Minister Indroyono Susilo and Transportation Minister Ignasius Jonan on Thursday, said the new port would be built east of Cilamaya, either in Subang or Indramayu. Kalla said the main reason to move the new port’s location to another regency was because waters in the area were already crowded by offshore mining activities and oil tankers transporting crude oil to Jakarta and other cities. The government has allocated Rp 34.5 trillion (US$2.6 billion) to construct a new port, as Tanjung Priok Port is deemed too crowded.

POSCO to lift Indonesia investment to $11 billion over next 5 years: Jakarta

From Reuters Oct 19, 2012 South Korean steelmaker POSCO will almost double its investment in Indonesia to $11 billion over the next five years, from $6 billion currently, Chief Economics Minister Hatta Rajasa said on Friday. The world's fourth-biggest steelmaker, already has a multi-billion dollar joint venture with Indonesian state-owned PT Krakatau Steel, the country's biggest steel producer. Earlier this year, the South Korean firm's affiliate POSCO Engineering & Construction, formed a consortium to build two 300-megawatt power plants on Indonesia's Sumatra island, worth around $1 billion. A POSCO spokesman in Seoul said the South Korean firm has yet to make detailed investment commitments in Indonesia, and noted other partners would jointly invest in any projects. Foreign direct investment in Indonesia stayed strong in the second quarter, showing the G20 member remained a magnet in a troubled global economy and that changes in mining ownership r
