Batam Could Become Special Economic Zone
Wednesday, 16 September, 2009 | 13:41 WIB

TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:
The government has guaranteed that free trade areas will remain although the draft bill about special economic zones is not ratified yet.

“There is the opportunity for these areas to become special economic zone in line with this bill,” said Trade Minister, Mari Elka Pangestu when representing the government at a meeting with the House of Representatives (DPR) yesterday (15/9).

The meeting was to approve ratification of the draft bill arranging the zone. All factions have agreed to this.

Mari explained that in the future, the system of special economic zones will be the only system in developing economic areas in Indonesia.

Before the regulation draft was discussed and ratified, the government included Batam, Bintan, and Karimun, as free trade zones.

As the next step, Mari explained that government has promised to set up rules for the zones’ operational activities.

“The government will soon complete all products included in the regulation so its target can be achieved,” she said. Mari said that it would take one year to finish the rules.

These will include the procedures in classifying and expanding special economic zones as well as the funding for the zones’ national and regional councils and administrators.

In addition, the government will arrange cooperation with the private sector for the development and maintenance of infrastructure.

The government believes that within one to two years, several special economic zones will be realized.

Kuku, do you know how I can find out if there are any PCB fabrication and population companies in Batam? Is there a company register somewhere?

Doing a Google search throws up very little and you end up getting links to Chinese companies instead.

Cheers.

don't know, but i could find out. electronics companies in batam are on the decline; many big companies, like panasonic, have pulled out. seems oil and gas and shipbuilding are the main industries now.

What I am looking for is a small company capable of surface mount handling and small batches. There would also be assembly work to put it all together. I am not bothered if they use an overseas company to do the boards and then assembly locally. As long as the assembly is done in Indonesia there is not an issue with it.

Cheers for offer of finding out.

Mount handling in small batches? Piss is your man.

there is quite a large board stuffing compay called PT Sat Nusa Persada.

The owner's name is Abidin; he is chairman of APINDO Batam branch and he is quite well known locally.

I think there must be quite a few smaller board stuffing plants as well.
