The fact that Indonesia ranked 73rd on the World Bank’s ease of doing business index, last updated in October 2019, also discourages investors, as neighboring Malaysia and Thailand fare better in 12th and 21st position, respectively. “I think it’s quite challenging for corporations to quickly move their operations to Indonesia if we don’t improve our regulatory [environment]. While Trump could encourage companies to relocate their facilities, in the end it’s the companies that make the decision,” Center for Indonesian Policy Studies (CIPS) researcher Andre Surianta told the Post. For the pharmaceutical industry, Andre said, a major factor that dissuaded investors were regulations mandating the use of locally-sourced raw materials.“We are unable to provide raw materials for the pharmaceutical industry because we don’t have the supply chain. I think we should relax the regulation on local content if we want to see the industry come in,” he said.Indonesian workers’ low productivity is another major challenge for the government as it seeks to attract investors.According to a survey conducted by the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO), Indonesia’s manufacturing plants’ productivity only scored 74.4 on an index where the respondents’ Japanese companies’ productivity defines 100.Indonesia’s score is lower than those of the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam at 86.3, 82.7, 80.1 and 80.0, respectively.The survey also shows that more than half of the Japanese companies are not satisfied with the minimum wage compared to the worker’s productivity.“Even though the pharmaceutical industry is a capital-intensive investment, which makes workers’ productivity less [impactful], investors still list our human capital as one of their greatest concerns,” Andre said.“Human capital development should be our long-term priority if we want to increase our attractiveness to foreign investors.”He also said that industrial zones with sufficient infrastructure and accessibility were not easy to find in Indonesia, which could make investors opt for other countries.Brebes regency’s development planning head Edy Kusmartono acknowledged that the local administration had heard about the potential relocation, even though there had been no formal notification from the central government so far.“We have 3,975 ha of land in the KIB and manpower of 20,000 people who are ready to work inside the KIB. If [the central government and investors] are interested, they could set up the industry here,” Edy told Kompas daily newspaper on May 11.He further said that the KIB was still waiting for its masterplan that was being formed by the zone’s developer PT Kawasan Industri Wijayakusuma, which includes the business scheme, consortium appointment and land acquisition, before starting its physical construction.Topics : “President Jokowi [Joko Widodo] has been frequently discussing the [pharmaceutical industry] relocation with President Trump,” Luhut said. He added that 90 percent of pharmaceutical product compounds were still unavailable in the country and needed to be imported.Indonesian Pharmaceutical Association (GP Farmasi) chairman Tirto Koesnandi said an unsupportive regulatory framework and high wages could deter investors from setting up operations in the country.”Our investment climate is still unattractive for future investors, including US pharmaceutical companies. Wages are still too high, and there are many regulations that make investment unattractive,” Tirto told The Jakarta Post on Tuesday.Statements issued by the US State Department in 2019 noted that legal uncertainty, economic nationalism and restrictions to imports and exports were some of the factors that made investing in Indonesia challenging. Indonesia’s infamous red tape could dissuade investment from US pharmaceutical companies looking to relocate from China, experts say.The Indonesian government is in talks over the possibility of offering US-controlled pharmaceutical firms that wish to move factories out of China a new production base, according to Coordinating Maritime Affairs and Investment Minister Luhut Pandjaitan.“President [Donald] Trump is currently at odds with his Chinese counterparts, and he wants to relocate industries out of China,” Luhut said during an interview with state broadcaster RRI on May 9. The government is now preparing a 4,000-hectare special economic zone for the industry in the Brebes industrial zone (KIB) in Central Java.
Indonesia’s antigraft agency must use the recent arrest of former Supreme Court secretary Nurhadi to open the floodgates to uncovering more corruption in judicial intuitions, former commissioner Bambang Widjojanto said.Investigators of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) arrested Nurhadi and his son-in-law Rezeky Herbiyono in South Jakarta last week, months after both were named suspects and put on the KPK’s wanted list for allegedly accepting bribes in the form of nine checks and Rp 46 billion (US$3.2 million) in cash pertaining to three cases handled by the country’s highest court between 2011 and 2016.Bambang alleged that the pair could have been involved in more than three cases, as Nurhadi’s position allowed him to control the flow of justice in the Supreme Court. “The Supreme Court secretary can be an entry for communication to all justice seekers in the country, we suspect he also had the power and interest to handpick the Supreme Court judge candidates who are chosen through the House of Representatives,” Bambang said in a discussion with antigraft group Indonesia Corruption Watch over the weekend, referring to the House’s authority to select Supreme Court judges.Read also: Antigraft group reports KPK’s new law enforcement deputy over ethical violation”In some discussions, Nurhadi was mentioned as the dark prince of injustice. Because in the black market of injustice, he allegedly controlled and managed all transactions.”Bambang, who served as the KPK commissioner from 2011 to 2015, further suspected that the bribery cases implicating Nurhadi were only the tip of the iceberg. Therefore, he urged the antigraft agency to dig deeper into more alleged corruption in the Supreme Court by developing the case. “Nurhadi cannot be seen merely by the cases worth Rp 46 billion. If his case was really as complex as I suspect, then I’m worried for his safety because there must be a lot of people who can’t sleep at night,” Bambang said.”If Nurhadi ‘sings’, then it will strike all notes in the chord of this republic,” he added.Read also: 100 days of blunders: Watchdog slams new KPK chairman’s performanceBambang also urged the newly elected Supreme Court chief Syariffudin to use the momentum of the case to cleanse the court of corruption.Antigraft activists have noted that Nurhadi’s wealth, amounting to more than Rp 33 billion in assets ranging from land plots to luxury cars, is unusually high for someone with his income.The highest salary for a Supreme Court employee is around Rp 32.6 million as of 2019, with an additional Rp 32.8 million monthly benefits as of 2014. Activists suggested the KPK open a money laundering investigation against him in relation to the bribery case.There have also been mounting calls for the KPK to investigate the alleged obstruction of justice in Nurhadi cases, as activists slammed the antigraft agency for failing to track him down for months despite public reports suggesting that he was located in South Jakarta.Topics :

The European Union has formally approved €2.5 million for the international project seeking to develop a standardized model for the renewables-based decentralized hybrid energy systems for remote off-grid communities.The funding to be delivered through Interreg North-West Europe (NWE) program, part of the European Regional Development Fund, represents 60% of the €4.2 million total project budget.The Low Carbon Off-grid Communities (LOGiC) project will incorporate decentralized hybrid energy systems combining different types of renewables, such as tidal, wind and solar PV with each other as well as with battery storage.Three remote areas, including Texel Island in the Netherlands, Orkney Islands in the United Kingdom, and Gimbweiler in Germany, will act as the pilot locations and real-life testing grounds for the new hybrid energy systems.The decentralized hybrid renewable energy systems are expected to lead to a reduction in carbon emissions and help provide a reliable and local power supply for remote local communities.Thijs Pennink, Director of the Dutch Regional Development Agency North Holland North (NHN) which is leading the project, said: “The combination of different energy generators in one system on this scale has not been shown before in North-West Europe. The project fits perfectly with the ambitions of the North Holland North region to contribute to the acceleration of the energy transition.”Hans van Breugel, CEO of Dutch tidal turbine manufacturer and project development company, Tocardo International, which is also one of the partners in the project, said the LOGiC initiative presents an opportunity for the company to install a tidal turbine in combination with sun, wind and storage in smart energy networks.Aside from NHN and Tocardo, seven other partners will work together on this project, including Hochschule Trier IfaS; Stichting Offgrid Test Centre; les îles du Ponant; Aquatera; Alliance for Rural Electrification (ARE); Verbandsgemeinde Birkenfeld, and the waterboard Hoogheemraadschap Hollands Noorderkwartier.The LOGiC project will initially last until March 2020 and will aim to gain widespread support in local communities of North-West Europe, as well as backing from politicians, academia and businesses.As an integral part of the project, NHN will therefore launch a ‘Community of Practice’ to collect feedback from all stakeholders and share best practices on decentralized renewable hybrid energy systems, which in turn will be included in the final model developed by the project, the NHN informed.

Malachi Ohawume scored two well-taken goals in five second-half minutes to power Rivers United to a stunning 2-0 victory over hosts, Heartland FC in Okigwe in a high profile Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) game decided on Sunday. rivers united Malachi smacked home from close range after an extraordinary assist from second-half substitute, Fortune Omoniwari in the 75th minute and completed his brace with just over nine minutes remaining with a fearsome finish, plundered with frightening with the goalkeeper, Ikechukwu Ezenwa barely moving a muscle. The win keeps United in second place on the NPFL standings, just one point adrift of the leaders, Plateau United who defeated Jigawa Golden Stars 2-1 in Jos. Heartland were the better side in the first half but a combination of profligacy and ill-luck cost them the chance to go into the break with their noses in front by at least, two clear goals. Abiodun Thompson and Aputaziem Ugochuwu came extremely close to opening the scoring in a matter of seconds as the game hit the quarter-hour mark but both men failed to display clinical instincts in front of the goal. Five minutes later, Samuel Nnoshiri struck a freekick against the crossbar from the edge of the bar despite the best efforts of the Rivers United goalkeeper, Drissa Bamba to keep the ball from hitting the back of the net. The loose ball fell towards the path of Ezeali Kingsley whose effort from two yards also clattered against the crossbar. It was a close shave that the visitors would profit from late on. Heartland, however, continued to step on the accelerator and nearly scored in the 24th minute with Adetola Ayooluwa getting into a goal-scoring position but seeing his final touch – a fierce strike fly hopelessly wide. On the half-hour, the visitors rode their luck again when the unmarked Pascal Eze headed millimeters wide from eight yards following majestic work by Nnoshiri who completely took the United defence to the cleaners. Two minutes later, the hosts came close again, this time, through Jide Williams who saw his well-struck effort from 20 yards easily smothered by Bamba. Aputaziem Ugochukwu was presented with the hosts’ best chance of the half in the 36th minute, a side-footed effort from three yards which was struck wide after Julius Emiloju delivered on a plate for the unmarked forward. The shocking pattern of misses continued for the home side as Ezeali Kingsley fired wide from eight yards with just Bamba at his mercy. The hosts commenced the second half exactly as they ended the first and came close to breaking the deadlock in the 52nd minute. Ayoola finally getting the beating of Bamba and wheeling away in celebration only for United’s left-back, Konan Ruffin to produce an audacious goal-line clearance that left him with a broken lip as his face clattered against the right-hand post. There is a maxim in football, “when you don’t take your chances, you will pay dearly for it”. That phrase was ruthlessly exemplified in the 75th minute as Malachi netted clinically from close range following a quickly-taken corner. United scored with their next attack of the game through Malachi who blasted past the shell-shocked Ezenwa as the Naze Millionaires were left to rue missed opportunities and ponder what might have been.
