    Indonesia Investment Forum 2022

    Bahlil Lahadalia, Minister of Investment, Indonesia, will be among the speakers at the Indonesia Investment Forum 2022, which takes place in London on 27 October 2022.

    Organised by The Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia, the Indonesia Investment Promotion Centre, and Bank Indonesia’s Representative Office in London, and supported by Asia House, the forum will act as a platform for discussion on investment opportunities in Indonesia’s green and sustainable economy. This timely dialogue is of key interest this year given Indonesian’s presidency of the G20, and will take place just weeks before the summit in Bali in November.

    Key figures at the heart of Indonesia’s economy will provide insights on topics ranging from Indonesia’s ambitions for its G20 chairmanship and the country’s economic agenda, to ways in which investment into Indonesia can be accelerated.
