VW Plans to Build Car Factory in Indonesia

Jakarta, MINA — Car maker, Volkswagen (VW), which is based in Wolfsburg, Lower Saxony, Germany, plans to build a car factory in Indonesia, Antara News reported, citing a government official.

“VW also wants to build an assembly line here. They want to produce Tiguan in Indonesia with an investment of 40 million-50 million euros,” Director General of Metal, Machine and Electronic Harjanto told reporters here on Wednesday.

VW will name the factory Brand Holding Sole Agent (ATPM) PT Garuda Mataram, Harjanto said without naming the location of the factory.

He said he had no information yet about the location.

“The precise location of the assembly line is not yet known, nut they said VW already has investment in the country,” he said

He said with the size of investment, the production capacity would not be very big as the production is to be exported to other ASEAN countries. (T/RS5/RS1)
