The closed and open business fields category based on Presidential Regulation Number 10 of 2021 concerning the Investment Business Field

The Indonesian government has taken various ways to move the Indonesian economy, one of which is by attracting foreign investors to invest in Indonesia. The Indonesian government through Presidential Regulation No. 10/2021 concerning the Investment Business Sector (Perpres 10/2021) has changed the investment concept to become a Priority Business Sector. Perpres 10/2021 is a derivative regulation of Law Number 11 of 2020 concerning Job Creation (Job Creation Law).

In the previous regulation, the concept of investment was that every investor was obliged to know what fields are open and closed so that investors can find out what business fields they will choose. Whereas in this new regulation the concept is that all fields of investment are open except for those that are closed and with certain conditions.
