President Joko Widodo is optimistic that Indonesia's economic policies during the pandemic will have a positive impact and provide incentives for entrepreneurs and business people.
This was conveyed by President Jokowi in his remarks at the APEC CEO Dialogues 2020 event, which was held virtually, as uploaded via the YouTube video of the Presidential Secretariat in Jakarta, Thursday.
"I am sure that entrepreneurs, and domestic and international business actors, will feel the positive effects of the various potentials and incentives from the economic policies issued by Indonesia during the pandemic," said President Jokowi.
President Jokowi said Indonesia was using the momentum of the crisis because of the COVID-19 pandemic to carry out structural reforms.
"On an extraordinary basis, we are fixing the existing regulations, fixing the existing bureaucracy. In order to move quickly through difficult times, so that we are ready to open the widest possible door for businessmen and investors in new ways," said President Jokowi.
The Head of State also said that Indonesia had passed the Omnibus Law on Job Creation as an effort to massively simplify regulations from 79 laws to one law.
President Jokowi invited CEOs and businessmen in the Asia Pacific region to take advantage of the opportunities from the recently passed Omnibus Law. (Antaranews)
