Indonesia – the new heaven for industrial estate investors – Yes ! …but

Initiated by all economic and political authorities, as part of a long term industrial development strategy, Indonesia has started more than 2 years ago to emphasize Industrial Estate development.

With more than 40 new Industrial estates launched over the main islands, local authorities are granting permits, competitive land prices as well as building infrastructures to support leading national companies to attract international industrial Estate developers bringing in expertise& clients. Ultimately local authorities are targeting sustainable job creations as well as bringing in innovative and high-tech industries.

Government wise, the purpose is to put Indonesia at the center of the global economic development but the regional competition is aggressive with countries such as Vietnam, which offers also a well-recognised experience…. However, the Indonesian growth opportunities are unique thanks to the massive domestic market that Indonesia is offering.

Following workshops and meetings with BOD of major Industrial Estate Development companies and investment funds, Oaks Asia has confirmed that Indonesia is the first country on the road map in the region.  These clients expressed a high level of interest and expectations to enter Indonesia as soon as possible, once again confirming Indonesia attractiveness…

So why this is not happening … !?

On February 2018, Oaks Asia Partners was invited by land owners to evaluate some of these areas.

The challenge for these Indonesian companies, looking at developing Industrial Estates in the country, does not seem to be to find the opportunities and the available land. Their challenge is to secure the land (legally and financially) as well as find the right partners with the long-standing experience to properly design, cost efficiently develop and professionally run an industrial estate.

Oaks Asia has already been involved in bridging this enormous gap between the opportunity to develop and industrial estate and the actual realization of this opportunity.

With its clients, Oaks Asia organizes workshops to clearly understand the challenges they are facing and identify the gaps in the plans and strategy to develop a state-of-the-art industrial estate. Once the gaps and pitfalls are identified Oaks Asia moves on to support the clients on preparing a business plan that will allow them to go out to discuss the opportunities with possible partners and investors, where Oaks Asia will continue to play a defining role on identifying the partners and investors. Oaks Asia will continue to support its clients during the negotiating process with partners and investors, all the way to the closing and signing of the agreement.

Developing an industrial estate is not just about buying some land and finding some companies to invest in factories on this land….. Developing an industrial estate is a long process that requires a wide range of skills (finance, commercial, management, engineering, legal,……) as well as international exposure. Oaks Asia brings its recognized experience in this fields to the benefit of both its customers and clients.

With Oaks Asia we will continue to follow these positive developments for South East Asia.
