JAKARTA, INDONESIA — A clear national strategy, long-term foreign investment, and infrastructure development are key for Indonesia to reach its full economic potential, according to a report released today by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) in Indonesia at the annual U.S.-Indonesia Investment Summit. Co-hosted by the two organizations, the Summit brings together U.S.
The report, entitled “The Big Picture: Indonesia's Partnership with U.S. Investors,” was prepared by the U.S. Chamber and AmCham Indonesia and is based on extensive interviews with Indonesian cabinet ministers, senior officials, and U.S. and Indonesian business leaders. It examines Indonesia’s economic development goals, assesses the various policies in place or under consideration to support those goals, and considers the challenges standing in the way of their realization.

In 1978, Congress approved and President Jimmy Carter signed legislation to deregulate the aviation industry. A few years later, Congress also agreed to deregulate the motor carrier and freight railroad industries. By allowing free-market competition in these industries, we have experienced an unprecedented rise in reliability, safety, and efficiency.

The Clean Power Plan was the wrong answer to a real concern.
To be clear, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce believes that the climate is changing, and that man is contributing to these changes. We also believe that technology and innovation, rather than sweeping federal mandates, offer the best approach for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and mitigating the impacts of climate change.
