After Asian Games, investment will still coming. Jakarta's role as the host of the 2018 Asian Games, which involved 11,478 athletes from 45 countries, has gained the attention of the Jakarta Investment and Single Window Integrated Services Agency (DPMPTSP) as the right momentum to attract more investors.
Chief of Jakarta DPMPTSP Edy Junaedi, said that one of the effort to attract investors is through the Jakarta Investment Center (JIC). Edy asserted that as the host of Asia's largest sporting event, Jakarta will be the center of attention for investors planning to make their investments in the capital.
Edy hoped that the JIC can help to solve problems often faced by potential investors, and existing investors when making their investments in Jakarta.
JIC also functions as, among others, Strategic Partnership, through establishing cooperation and communications to stakeholders; Advisory Rules, actively providing solutions to policymakers, both regional and national, to address main issues in increasing regional investments.
Another function is to become an integrated information centre for investors visiting during the Asian Games event. After Asian Games, investment will still coming and it will get better in the future although Indonesia's economy is facing serious challenge from abroad.
