Foreign Investment Company

Over the past decade, Indonesia has become one of the most investment-attractive places in the world. Foreign investors come to Bali and willingly open businesses here.

PT PMA is the most popular and secure type of business license for foreign investors in Indonesia. It is suitable for projects of any size, and investors do not face any restrictions in their ventures.
