Business Environment

Indonesia, the largest economy in Southeast Asia, is a member of the  G20 and a powerhouse within the  ASEAN region. With over 250 million inhabitants, it’s the most populous country in Southeast Asia and boasts a middle class that surpasses the total population of Canada.  While commodities continue to drive economic growth,  the Indonesian government  has announced plans to rebalance the economy and focus more on manufacturing. Not only will this diversify the economy, it will also help to serve the middle class' increasing demand for modern consumer goods and technologies. Indonesia presents many opportunities in a variety of sectors, however, bureaucracy, lack of transparency and  poor infrastructure continue to  threaten foreign investors. In order to succeed in the country, Canadian companies must be prepared to invest the time and resources needed to develop the necessary  local relationships and  conduct strong due diligence prior to entering the market.
