Investment in Batam FTZ not affected by bombings

Suicide bombings at two South Jakarta hotels on Friday will not affect investment in the Batam, Bintan and Karimun free trade zones, an official has said.

Riau Islands Governor Ismeth Abdullah said Saturday the free trade zones were far away from Jakarta. Investors, he added, know conditions on the island well.

“Bombs will not scare investors here,” Ismeth told state news agency Antara after inaugurating the Graha Kepri building in Batam.

He added, however, that he had asked the police to take precautionary measures to anticipate any possible security threats. “The government is working with the police to maintain security in industrial estates, expatriate housing complexes and other strategic economic locations,” said Ismeth, who heads the FTZ council.

Security guards have been put on high alert in the wake of the Jakarta bombings. “I asked them to install CCTV to monitor suspicious persons,” he said.
