Jodi said the delegations from Tesla have canceled their visit to Indonesia this month due to the Covid-19 restrictions. They followed the policies of the Indonesian government who bans foreign nationals from entering the country as its Covid-19 caseload continues to climb.

“They follow the policies issued by the Indonesian government as foreigners are prohibited to enter Indonesia,” he said, adding that the cancellation did not hinder their plans to invest in Indonesia.
