JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – Indonesia’s Coordinating Maritime Affairs and Investment Minister Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan said on Wednesday that his office and US automaker Tesla have signed a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) on investment, but no elaborate.

“We have virtual meetings for six times and the NDA has been signed. We will receive their proposal today or tomorrow,” Luhut said in a televised message on Wednesday, February 3.

However, Luhut remained tight-lipped about the agreement.

“We are not sure how big it is, but what we know is that actually, we can’t disclose the details publicly,” Luhut said.

It was previously reported that initially Tesla was going to send its delegations to Indonesia in January this year. But, it was postponed to February due to the Covid-19 restrictions.

Jodi Mahardi, a spokesperson to Luhut, said that the team from Tesla is still waiting for the government’s decision to lift the ban of entry for foreigners.

“It has not been canceled, but it is still waiting for the travel restrictions to be lifted,” Jodi told Kompas.com.
