BritCham Indonesia – Business Confidence Index 2020


The British Chamber of Commerce (BritCham) Indonesia has successfully finalised its 8th annual Business Confidence Index (BCI) survey, in partnership with the European Chamber of Commerce  Indonesia, in association with the EU-Indonesia Business Network (EIBN) and CastleAsia, and with Nielsen as the market research partner.

The Business Confidence Index was conceived by BritCham in 2012 as a B2B survey of British investors domiciled in Indonesia.

From this year’s BCI, there are some very encouraging insights to highlight:

  1. E-commerce/ online retailer, Pharmaceuticals and Food & Beverages are the top-3 sectors with the most positive outlook along with a high perception of growing opportunity.
  2. Despite the unprecedented pandemic, 21% of the respondents are considering to expand their business in the next 12 months. The top-3 business expansion destinations are Kalimantan (35%), East Java (22%) and Bali (20%).
  3. In relation to the recently released Omnibus Law Bill on Job Creation, employment and ease of doing business are viewed to positively impact businesses.
  4. 63% of the respondents agree that the works being done by Chambers of Commerce positively impact their business–which is a continued increase since 2017 version of BCI.
