There are multiple government ministries which deal with the various elements of foreign direct investment. Some of the most important policies regarding foreign investment are reflected in the Central Government’s Master Plan for the Acceleration and Expansion of the Indonesian Economic Development. All business activities of foreign companies in Indonesia are overseen by the Ministry of Finance which also regulates the financial activities of such companies.

The Ministry of Trade oversees the trade activities regarding exports and imports carried out in the country by foreign investors. The Directorate General of Customs and Excise is also involved in this matter. The Ministry of Law and Human Rights ensures that the rights of foreign investors in Indonesia are always protected so that they will not be mistreated by any authorities or suffer due to nepotism or institutional corruption.
