Suara.com – The government has re-entered investment in alcoholic beverages or liquor (Miras) to the positive list of investments. That way, business actors can invest in the alcohol industry in a number of regions.
However, the reopening of the alcohol investment tap resulted in both advantages and disadvantages.
In terms of benefits, according to an economist from the Institute for Development of Economics and Finance (INDEF) researcher Bhima Yudhistira Adinegara, the alcohol investment has an economic impact on the economy in the area.
For example, this investment can develop local liquor businesses such as Brem Bali to Soppi in NTT.
However, Bhima sees that the economic impact is not that big for the area.
“The impact is small but the long-term economic loss is actually big. The loosening of investment regulations in the mining sector has a small impact on the economy of the people in the regions, but the negative effects in the future are actually big,” said Bhima when contacted by Suara.com, written on Tuesday (2/3). / 2021).
Meanwhile, in terms of losses, Bhima said, there would be many losses that would be faced by Indonesia if it continued to open the tap for investing in alcohol.
For one thing, the face of Indonesia will be seen as ugly by Muslim countries, which as a result could lose investment from Muslim countries.
“This actually makes Indonesia’s face in the eyes of foreign investors, especially those from Muslim countries, is not good enough. Moreover, previously the government made a lot of noise about investing in the halal sector,” he said.
“There are many sectors that can be developed apart from the mineralol industry. If it only has an impact on the workforce, the agricultural sector and agro-industrial development should be encouraged,” added Bhima.
