The Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment, Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan, previously confirmed that further talks were going on about the investment plan of electric car manufacturer Tesla Inc. in Indonesia is going positively.
Luhut said that the government would unveil Tesla Inc’s investment plan during the G20 Summit in Bali in mid-November. “If the conversation is not positive (with Tesla), why should I speak,” said Luhut.
