Indonesia, Southeast Asia's biggest economy, is one of three Asian countries to make the list of the world's worst places to do business in.
The country is one of the most difficult places to start a business. It takes one and half months to launch a business in Indonesia, nearly three and half times longer than the average for all OECD countries. Getting electricity in the world's fourth most populous nation also takes 20 days longer than in the rest of East Asia and the Pacific.
Indonesia's infrastructure problems have long been blamed for hampering its growth. Four out of its five busiest international airports are operating above capacity and about 15 million households have no access to electricity.
The country wants private investors to provide at least two-thirds of the $150 billion needed for infrastructure development in the next five years. In July, French firms, including engineering heavyweight Alstom, pledged more than $2.5 billion in energy and infrastructure investments.
In the same month, three Chinese companies expressed interest in investing about $3 billion to build ports, toll roads and railway tracks in the main Java island. China, the world's biggest energy consumer, is keen to tap into Indonesia's abundant coal and other resources. Earlier this year, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao pledged $9 billion in loans to support Indonesia's infrastructure development.
