The legal system of Indonesia is far from perfect and it affects the business climate of Indonesia. The filled ballroom with many different stakeholders demonstrates the eagerness for changes and improvements. We are delighted that our forum opened the stage to discuss about ways to improve and start to move forward together. We aspire that the attendees were able to express their aspirations and also obtained insights from policymakers regarding their problems, achievements, challenges and strategies in the matters.
