Jakarta: The Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM) has not seen the impact of the spread of the coronavirus on the realization of investment from China in Indonesia.
"If we want to measure it, it is not too significant for us," said Head of BKPM Bahlil Lahadalia at the IDX Building, Jakarta on Tuesday, January 28, 2020.
According to him, there is no change in investment trends due to the spread of the virus originating from the Wuhan area, China. In the first month of this year, the investment trend was still normal.
