Historically, the Indonesian legal system is closely related to the Dutch legal system. Until its independence, nearly every law that was passed by the Dutch parliament was introduced in the Indonesian archipelago, with minor adjustments if required.
When Indonesia became independent in 1945, Article II of the Transitory Provisions in the Constitution determined that all laws and legislation existing under the Dutch colonial administration automatically became the law and legislation of the Republic of Indonesia, until revoked or amended.
Along with Indonesia’s transition to democracy in 1998, the new government implemented a variety of policies to create, among others, a more constructive environment for domestic and foreign investment.
Nowadays, the government continues to push economic reforms, notably through the enactment of the 2007 Investment Law, which many see as a significant step forward in investment policy and in improving the business climate.
