Why should we consider Indonesia as one of the world’s major e-commerce market? My post of Today will try to explain you in few facts, why we have to consider Indonesia as one of the world’s major e-commerce market and invest largely in this field with my foreigner eyes and my small experience over this business field. With more than 100 million of internet users, an average growth of the GDP upper than 5% each year, Indonesia still suffer of a deficit of image compared to Singapore, China or Eastern Europe. Because of the geography of the archipelago (+17 500 islands), the Internet and e-commerce will lead and solve some of the biggest challenges of the country like logistics and inter-island connection and access to goods and services. More globally this is a moving forward field, thrived by a Young, over connected (67% of the connections are made from smartphones) and curious population aware of the potential of the internet to change their life. So why there is a lack of partnerships with foreign innovative SME’s? Of course Google, Rocket Internet, Alibaba and all these world heavyweights are already involved and based in Indonesia, but why a highly valuable company as Blablacar is not yet there? In most of foreign players eyes, the Indonesian market has the reputation to be a highly controlled and very protectionist market. Recently, the Indonesian government totally opened some field of the e-commerce market to the foreign players and wants to develop its local players with international cooperation. Most of the biggest local conglomerates are already plugged and active in the e-commerce through VC, through shares or directly through business units and see the e-commerce market and have the ambition and awareness to increase their position in this market and open cooperation with foreign companies. All the Indonesian economy pillar and key actor already developed internet things and e-solutions as banks, ministries, industrials, services, telecom players, universities …. Active in the smart-cities development, moving forward in the IoT field, support by the government and the local key players, developing some of the largest and most valuable ASEAN start-ups and websites and with an enormous potential of growth (only 40% of internet penetration) but already the biggest market of South East Asia, foreign players and especially French foreign players should consider Indonesia as a priority market in the following years. Over the past 3 years, the market has an average annual growth of 42% and is expect to have a strong growth until 2030! So it depends only to you to wait until 2030 to come or to surf and develop your businesses in a really exciting and moving market. Or you can wait the train until 2030… Gaya Guirous-Medjnoun , ICT and Industry businesses specialist, Embassy of France, Business France

Tour d’horizon des principales nouvelles business en Indonésie AOUT 2016    A l’occasion d’un déplacement à Semarang, le président Jokowi a déclaré vouloir baisser l’impôt sur les sociétés (actuellement à 25%) , faisant explicitement référence au taux de 17% en vigueur à Singapour. Cette remarque intervient alors que le Parlement doit prochainement réviser plusieurs lois sur l’administration et la politique fiscales.  La startup proposant des services de transport en scooter Go-Jek a levé 550 M USD lors de son deuxième tour de table. Les actionnaires historiques ont réinvesti et ont été rejoints par de nouveaux investisseurs internationaux dont KKR, Warburg et Pincus. Il s’agit de la plus importante levée de capital-risque jamais réalisée en Indonésie. Le nouveau terminal de l’Aéroport Soekarno-Hatta à Jakarta a été mis en service avec plusieurs mois de retard .

Dans le cadre du programme de socialisation d’amnistie fiscale à Semarang, le Président de la République, Joko Widodo envisage de baisser l’impôt sur la revenue (IR)  à valeur égale avec Singapour. Selon le Président  de la République, l’Indonésie doit s’aligner avec Singapour pour pouvoir attirer plus d’investisseurs étranger. Afin d’atteindre cet objectif, le Gouvernement réduira le taux graduellement, de 25% à 20% et finalement 17%. De plus, le Gouvernement examine la possibilité d’ouvrir de nouvelles « free zone » sur l’une de ses îles comme Bali, Batam et Bintan.

Elle constitue la principale source de revenu de l’État. L’exploitation du pétrole est ancienne en Indonésie et les ressources gazières du pays procèdent pour l’essentiel de gisements matures qui demandent un effort d’investissement important. Elle n’est cependant pas toujours suffisante pour fournir des produits et des services répondant aux plus hauts standards de qualité et à forte valeur ajoutée. Il reste donc des opportunités pour les sociétés étrangères, en particulier pour celles qui choisiront de s’implanter sur ce marché. Emission d’obligations d’une valeur de 147,4 M USD  pour des projets  d’expansion aéroportuaire en Indonésie.

Multistrada and the PSG signs the first non-qatari worldwide agreement

Gaya Guirous - Medjnoun - 27-mai-2016 11:35:40

Tire maker PT Multistrada Arah Sarana has signed a global partnership with French soccer club Paris Saint-Germain ( PSG ) in order to further expand its business in Europe. “We see soccer as an outstanding medium for marketing. Soccer fans are so fanatical. Therefore, we hope the fanaticism of PSG fans worldwide can increase our sales,” Multistrada president director Pieter Tanuri said in Jakarta on Thursday. Multistrada currently produces 30,000 car tires per day under the Achilles brand and 16,000 motorcycles tires under Corsa. Through the partnership, the brands have become the official tires of PSG for the 2016-2019 period. Pieter explained that 75 percent of Multistrada’s tire production was exported to 93 countries around the world, with only 25 percent going to the local industry. According to him, the company’s sales in Europe stand at around 1 million tires, with an annual revenue of US$50 million. “With this new partnership, we hope we can double our sales in Europe within the next three years,” Pieter said. Last year, Multistrada recorded net sales of $237 million. This year, the company expects to see an increase of around 15 to 20 percent. PSG was established in 1970 with the merger of Paris Football Club and Stade Saint-Germain. However, the club started to gain global attention in 2011, when it was purchased by Qatar Sports Investment, an arm of the Qatari government. Since then, PSG has succeeded in recruiting big-name soccer players and winning four French league titles in a row, from 2013 to 2016. “Our budget this year is 500 million euros, five times higher than when Qatar Sports Investment took over the club in 2011,” said Sebastien Wasels, PSG head of international development. Currently, PSG is placed fourth in the Deloitte Football Money League, a ranking of soccer clubs by revenue generated from soccer operations, marking it as one of the wealthiest clubs worldwide. Wasels added that 90 percent of PSG supporters were outside of France, with 2.6 million fans based in Indonesia. Previously in July 2015, PSG deputy general manager Frédéric Longuépée stated that the club had a total of 20 million fans worldwide. Through the partnership, PSG has agreed to support soccer development in the country. The club plans to establish a soccer academy in cooperation with Bali United soccer club, which has been financially supported by Multistrada. ( vps ) Source Jakarta Post
