Mazars presents the EuroCham Country Report Q1 / 2009
Mazars is a member of the European Business Chamber of Commerce in Indonesia.
EuroCham believes that in the face of the global financial crisis Indonesia would need to initiate unified and persistent efforts to develop the infrastructure through private public partnerships and efficient budget spending.
Furthermore an improvement of the import-export facilities is urgently required, including increased port efficiency, clear implementations of regulations affecting importers, increased funding to government agencies burdened by the extra work related to the implementation of the Indonesian National Single Window, and a set of policies that opens up Indonesia to increased trade, instead of increased protectionism through technical and non-tariff barriers as has been the case since the financial crisis hit. EuroCham is certain that if work could be done towards these measures Indonesia could fare much better through the crisis than its regional competitors.
