Pak, Nusantara capital became one of the important headlines that you offered to investors during the Summit. How is the progress of foreign investments in Nusantara capital for the sustainability of Nusantara capital development?

President of the Republic of Indonesia

Until now, there is no foreign investment yet in Nusantara capital. However, I am certain that after more domestic investors initiate the construction every month, foreign investors will come to invest.

You were busy with APEC activities in San Francisco yesterday. Would you share something with us?

President of the Republic of Indonesia

I think I would like to share about economic condition in Indonesia, particularly the economic growth that, I predict, will reach above five percent next year, insha Allah. Inflation is still under control between two to three percent. The most important thing is good political stability. We will continue to repeat these issues.
