In Indonesia, when you establish a company with foreign capital, the procedures at BPKM (Indonesian Investment Coordinating Board) and multiple ministries are required. However, the negative list and the operation of each ministry change periodically. In addition, customers are unable to start business activities in Indonesia if their actual business contents are different with business plan approved by BPKM. This problem might have occurred because of insufficient communication with customers.
