    The creation of Special Economic Zones (SEZ) dates back to 2009 when first developed during Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono’s administration. The idea then was dormant for most of his administration, but the Joko “Jokowi” Widodo administration breathed new life into the idea. The recent sixth Economic Policy Package outlined incentives that the investors will receive in Special Economic Zones, including a 20 to 100% reduction in income tax for a defined period depending on the amount of investment, tax cuts, and no value-added tax for investors who require imported materials. Furthermore, licensing requirements will be eased. Most of the SEZs are located near ports or have a maritime focus.
