About Indonesia
 Indonesia is SEA’s largest economy and world’s 4th most populous nation. It has a
population of 238 million and a rapidly growing middle class. In 2013, its GDP growth
and FDI was 5.8% and US$28.6 billion respectively. Promising sectors include
consumer goods, water solutions, power generation, waste management, ports and

Batam is one of the 3,000 islands which make up the Riau Archipelago and is closest
to Singapore, which is just 20km or a 45 minute ferry ride away. Batam Island has a
population of around 1.17 million. Its strategic location is complemented by its investorfriendly environment. Operating here comes with a multitude of cost-competitive
advantages that includes space availability, steady labour supply and strong
government support. The island is also home to modern, well-developed infrastructure
that keeps businesses running smoothly.
Bintan is the largest island in the Riau Archipelago. The Island is located 60 minutes
