Tesla’s Elon Musk responded positively to an invitation from Indonesian President Joko ‘Jokowi’ Widodo on December 11, 2020, during which both parties shared their views on the electric car industry and its main component, electric batteries.

Jokowi invited Musk to invest in Indonesia for the production of electric cars but to also assess whether the country may be suitable as a SpaceX launching pad.

Musk said that he will send a team to Indonesia to explore the options.
