The Head of the Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM) Bahlil Lahadalia explained that in completing investment, it is not enough to use the regulatory approach but also to carry out a field approach. Because in the field there are many ghosts who actually play various regulations for personal gain.

On the previous occasion, Bahlil explained the intention of the 'ghost of a tie' is nothing but a land broker. He also claimed to have been a land broker for 16 years.

Because of that, he understood very well their actions and how to negotiate so that investment commitments did not necessarily stop at the memorandum of understanding.

Bahlil gave an example, the case of Lotte Chemical's investment in Cilegon, Banten, which for three years had not been completed in the field. Even though the investment value reached the US $ 4.2 billion. Even Vale, which will invest in the Nickel sector in Southeast Sulawesi worth US $ 2.9 billion for 4 years, has never completed its permit.

The Chairman of the BPP HIPMI, 2015-2019, also assured that he was not just solving the problem of large investments. At the beginning of January, he went to Jogja to complete a stalled investment of more than IDR1 billion.

The sandstone processing business pioneered by Bambang Susilo, a person with a disability in the Dusun Need, Bawukan Village, Kemalang District, Klaten, was rejected by a person who claimed to be a local citizen.

Besides claiming to have been a broker, as a former chairman of HIPMI who often travels around the region, Bahlil claimed to know and have a good relationship with regional heads.

In another section, Bahlil Lahadalia also explained various investment commitments obtained from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland at the end of January. He was also determined, under his leadership that all investors would no longer use the existing workforce in Indonesia.
