The Ministry of Investment/BKPM remains positive about Indonesia’s economic growth, as the investment realization in the first quarter of 2023 reached 23.5% of the 2023 investment realization target of IDR 1,400 trillion.

"Seeing investment growth in the first quarter of 2023 which reached 16.5%, I am optimistic that Indonesia's economic growth can reach around 5%. The investment will remain an important contributor to economic growth, even though it is predicted to slow down globally in 2023. Confidence for the 2023 economy will be good if we are able to maintain momentum," said Minister of Investment/Chairman of BKPM Bahlil Lahadalia in a press conference held this afternoon (28/4) at the office of the Ministry of Investment/BKPM.

In his presentation, Bahlil explained further about the contribution of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI/PMA), which in the first quarter of 2023 reached IDR177.0 trillion or 53.8%, surpassing Domestic Direct Investment (DDI/PMDN) of IDR151.9 trillion or 46.2% of investment realization of this period. Bahlil believes that the level of trust from the international business community in Indonesia is still excellent and the FDI has even shown an increase of 20.2% compared to the same period in the previous year.

"We continue to oversee investments in strategic sectors that provide added value, such as mineral resources downstream. In the first quarter of 2023, the FDI realization in the manufacturing sector, especially the metal industry, ranks first with total investment reaching USD2.9 billion. This achievement demonstrates that government policy of natural resource downstream program has delivered a positive impact on the achievement of investment performance in 2023," Bahlil explained.


The distribution of investment realization outside Java Island in the first quarter of 2023 continued to dominate with a contribution of IDR172.9 trillion or 52.6% of the total investment realization achievements. This figure has increased by 16.3% from the same period in 2022. As for the highest total investment realization, it is still held by the province of West Java with IDR50.0 trillion, followed by the Special Capital Region (DKI) of Jakarta, East Java, Central Sulawesi, and Banten.

Meanwhile, for DDI realization, West Java province recorded the highest realization of IDR21.9 trillion, followed by DKI Jakarta, East Java, East Kalimantan, and Riau.

Bahlil added, "The distribution of investment outside Java can be seen here. Central Sulawesi is the highest and Riau is included in the top 5 FDI ​​locations, then in the top 5 DDI locations are East Kalimantan and Riau. The Ministry of Investment continues to boost quality investment growth that is Indonesia-centric. We encourage the creation of new economic zones."
