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 rules are not cutting investor appetite.

The country got a boost at the end of last year when Fitch Ratings upgraded it to investment grade sovereign status on a par with India. But Europe's debt woes and a series of Indonesian government moves to limit foreign ownership have unnerved investors.

New investment is key to achieving the country's ambitious target of becoming a top 10 global economy by 2025 by selling more finished products rather than simply exporting raw materials, while improving its creaky infrastructure to achieve President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono's target of 7 percent annual economic growth.

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

Indonesia’s economy faces gathering headwinds

From Bloomberg Dec 6, 2013 Indonesian policy makers are grappling with a depreciated exchange rate, elevated inflation and diminished foreign capital inflows undermining President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono’s legacy of economic stability before he steps down next year. His failure to fix infrastructure gaps in his two terms has added to price pressures, threatening his party’s chances at elections in 2014. The government will allow foreign ownership of as much as 100 percent on airports, airport services and ports, Mahendra Siregar, chairman of the Investment Coordinating Board, told reporters today. For ground and freight terminals, it may be as high as 49 percent, while a cap on overseas holdings in 10 other industries may be eased, he said. The World Bank said last month downside risks to Indonesia’s economic outlook are sizeable, as higher borrowing costs and inflation may have a greater-than-expected effect on domestic demand. Exports have dropped for 18 consecutive months. “Ext

PLN: Gas Tender Held to Accelerate 35,000 MW Power Plant Project

From The Jakarta Post April 2, 2015 PLN, State electricity company  has said that its plan to hold the prequalification tender for the procurement of liquefied natural gas (LNG) aims to accelerate a 35,000 Megawatt (MW) power plant construction project. PLN’s director for strategic procurement and primary energy, Amin Subekti, said the company would hold a tender not only to ensure smooth power plant construction but also to secure its gas supply. PLN would auction not only the supply of gas but also its transportation and supplying infrastructure as well as its regasification facilities. He said PLN had announced studies on the prequalification process, followed by consultation sessions held at the company’s headquarters in Jakarta on Wednesday. Moreover he explained that in the end, the tender winners would create consortiums in which each of them would be permitted to procure gas domestically or through imports, to accommodate and to store, to transport and regasify the gas in ev
