Bisnis, JAKARTA — Bahlil Lahadalia, Minister of Investment and Head of the Indonesian Investment Coordinating Board, released a statement following a meeting with President Joko Widodo at the State Palace on Tuesday, May 31, 2023, explaining the investment plans for the green industrial estate in Bantaeng, South Sulawesi, and West Papua. 

The investment plan is related to the development of the electric vehicle (EV) battery ecosystem. "The investment is more or less $9 billion," said Bahlil. 

Investors from the UK and other European countries are involved in the development plan for the EV battery ecosystem. Several corporations are named, including Glencore from Switzerland, Envision from the UK, and Umicore from Belgium. EV battery production resulting from this project's development will later be utilized to fulfill domestic and foreign market needs.

"We will be exporting to Europe. Thanks to the UK's involvement, they can be our hub for Europe," said Bahlil. President Jokowi supports the investment plan and has even given instructions to expedite the investments by involving state-owned enterprises while adhering to laws and regulations.
