The Indonesian economy’s growth in 2017 has been steady, which is somewhat below the level needed to fulfil President Joko Widodo’s promised major step-up in infrastructure spending, towards which he has allocated IDR404tn ($30.23bn) out of the government’s 2018 budget. This initiative involves a number of public-private partnerships (PPPs) for toll-roads, railway lines and airports across the country. Another key development is the ‘big bang’ liberalisation, which relaxes the restrictive laws on foreign investment.

Traditionally, the appetite for investment in Indonesia centred upon its natural resources sector. However, the oil and gas industry has dropped from 6% of the country’s GDP in 2011 to only 3% in 2016. Alongside this, greater importance is being placed on renewable energy, particularly geothermal energy, and the government aims to produce 9,500MW in geothermal power by 2025.

Indonesia has the world’s fourth-largest population, so naturally there is a great deal of investment focusing on the purchasing power of the region’s rising middle class, which has seen other sectors such as technology, retail and real estate coming to the fore. A prime example of this is the motorbike ride hailing app GO-JEK, which closed $550m in funding last year. Another exciting development in 2017 is that Facebook opened its first permanent office in Jakarta.

The country has a closed legal market, which has led to many international firms working in association with local firms. Among these include Ginting & Reksodiputro in association with Allen & Overy, Hadiputranto, Hadinoto & Partners, a member firm of Baker McKenzie and Hiswara Bunjamin & Tandjung in association with Herbert Smith Freehills. In 2017, Melli Darsa & Co. joined PwC’s global network, while Clifford Chance ended its association with Linda Wiyati & Partners due to the retirement of name partner Linda Widyati.
