The value is greater than the value of New Zealand investment (ranked 35th), Norway (ranked 36th) or Saudi Arabia (ranked 39th) in the same period.

 

Director General of Endurance and Development of International Industrial Access (KPAII) Harjanto conveyed, Afghan investors who want to invest in Indonesia have a very good opportunity. The reason, the Government of Indonesia is very open to the entry of foreign investment, as can be seen in some regulated package that has been proclaimed by the Government.

 

"For example, the convenience of three-hour investment services, facility incentives in the bonded logistics area, downsizing of permits in the forestry sector, reduction of interest tax on deposits, incentives in industrial zones according to zone," he explained.

 

Afganistan Tertarik Kerja Sama di Industri Tekstil

 

Afganistan serius meningkatkan hubungan dagang dengan Indonesia serta mengoptimalkan investasi di sektor industri. Peluang kerja sama ekonomi ini diharapkan dapat membawa keuntungan komparatif dan kompetitif bagi kedua negara.

 

“Ada beberapa komoditi yang mereka tertarik untuk segera dibahas. Misalnya tekstil, farmasi, building construction, dan makanan,” kata Menteri Perindustrian Airlangga Hartarto usai menerima kunjungan Duta Besar Afganistan untuk Indonesia Roya Rahmani di Kementerian Perindustrian, Jakarta, Selasa (6/6).

 

Untuk menindaklanjuti peluang kerja sama tersebut, Menperin menyatakan, delegasi Indonesia perlu datang ke Afganistan untuk melakukan dialog bisnis bilateral. “Mereka juga telah menyampaikan undangan untuk pemerintah dan pelaku bisnis Indonesia bisa datang ke Kabul,” ujarnya.

 

Secara historis, Afganistan memiliki kedekatan khusus dengan Indonesia karena merupakan salah satu negara yang mengakui awal kedaulatan Republik Indonesia. Kedua negara telah menjalin hubungan yang baik selama 62 tahun dan berperan aktif menyukseskan Konferensi Asia Afrika tahun 1955.

 

Sebelumnya, Menperin berharap, penguatan hubungan bilateral akan membawa pengaruh signifikan terhadap pertumbuhan ekonomi masing-masing negara.

Nilai tersebut lebih besar daripada nilai investasi Selandia Baru (peringkat ke-35), Norwegia (peringkat ke-36) atau Arab Saudi (peringkat ke-39) pada periode yang sama.

 

Dirjen Ketahanan dan Pengembangan Akses Industri Internasional (KPAII) Harjanto menyampaikan, investor Afganistan yang ingin berinvestasi di Indonesia memiliki kesempatan yang sangat baik. Pasalnya, Pemerintah Indonesia sangat terbuka terhadap masuknya investasi asing, seperti yang dapat dilihat dalam beberapa paket diregulasi yang telah dicanangkan oleh Pemerintah.
