The Indonesian Investment Coordinating Board -BKPM assesses that there are two economic sectors that have strategic potential to be developed namely tourism and "e-Commerce". The tourism sector brings about fast impact on employment, income and income of foreign exchange. This was affirmed Chairman of BKPM, Thomas Lembong after attending a limited meeting on investment and trade with President Joko Widodo at the State Palace in Jakarta on Friday. Thomas Lembong views that e-Commerce sector also provided a large investment figure in 2017, which reached more than $5 billion dollars.  In addition, the government will also invite investors in the field of e-Commerce, both from Silicon Valley in the United States, Europe, Japan and China.
