Why choose Indonesia as a business location?

Congratulations on your decision to incorporate in Indonesia.

Indonesia has 17,500 islands and is one of the world's emerging markets.  She is the 16th largest economy in the world and the largest in Southeast Asia.  Demand for infrastructure in Indonesia is propelled by both urbanisation and economic growth.  To continue to reform her investment climate, the government has rolled out measures to ease red-tape, open up sectors for investment and improve public services.

With ongoing reforms in place, Indonesia now stands among the world's top 10 improvers (World Bank 's Ease of Doing Business Index 2017).  Here are some key performance ranking at a glance:

  • Starting a business #151

  • Getting credit #20

  • Enforcing contracts #166


The legal system in Indonesia is based on civil law and the World Justice Project (which measures the effectiveness of rule of law in each country) has ranked Indonesia #61 for rule of law.

With a population of over 250 million, Indonesia the #4 in the world as the most populous nation.  Indonesia has a young workforce with over 50% of its population under the age of 30.  While only 23% of all Indonesian students reach tertiary level, 97% of Indonesia's citizens receive some form of primary education.

Bahasa Indonesia is Indonesia's official language and is used for business and education.  English is spoken widely in big cities.  It will be advisable for business owners to take lessons in Bahasa Indonesia to facilitate business operations. In addition to Bahasa Indonesia, there are more than 700 indigenous languages that are also spoken across the country such as Javanese, Sundanese or Madurese.

If you have additional business needs on top of incorporation, we will be glad to assist or point you to a systematic solution.
