On Why SUVs Begin to Reign Over the Automotive Market

The event of Indonesia International Motor Show 2018 is technically not an event for selling suv jakarta car. It is more like a place where automotive companies convene and introduce their new products for the market, especially in Indonesia. And the event came as a bit of surprise when it made an affordable vehicle as the Best SUV. DFSK Glory 580 debuted for the first time in Indonesia during the event and it grabbed the attention of many. This should come as a sign that consumers’ interest in SUV is increasing these days. SUV has been the common staple in automotive market of Indonesia. KBB/Autotrader conducted a study to years ago on the correlation between automotive industry and American consumers. The study stated that Generation Z (those born in 1995) onward is entering a phase in their life where they can legally ride a car. This so called Generation Z prefers a vehicle with sporty look and that is durable. The SUV trend is only continuing on and it is predicted to drive other models such as hatchback or sedan aside. If the world has legitimately shifted its attention to SUV, it is only a matter of time before Indonesia also sets its eyes on the same thing.

Indonesia Automotive Industry Association seems to support this shift in trend as a way they can enhance the positive trend in Indonesia itself. The Association’s strong support for SUV is not a baseless thing. It is expected that after SUV has fully become something that people prefer domestically, Indonesia’s automotive industry can compete with the neighboring countries. At the moment, Indonesia still needs to overcome Thailand’s domination in Asia-Pacific market. Indonesian market is still dominated by MPV currently. But the global market prefers MPV the least so it impacts on export value and to sell MPVs domestically alone will not be able to help Indonesia’s automotive industry grow.

The prevalence of SUV in Indonesia affects other types of vehicle such as MPV. At a rate where SUVs are sold currently, it is only a matter of time before it takes over the reign from MPVs. The increase in sales number for SUVs can be attributed to the characteristics of Indonesian consumers. People seem to favor high-capacity vehicles over the low-capacity ones as it means more passengers can take up space within a car. SUVs are also deemed sturdier to take on the varying conditions of streets and roads in Indonesia.

Getting to Know More about Indonesia BKPM

Before you do business in Indonesia, you must first get yourself familiar with BKPM. So, what is bkpm exactly? BKPM is short for Badan Kerjasama Penanaman Modal; in English it should translate to Investment Coordinating Board. BKPM started its life as Technical Committee on Investment in 1967, which in turn was established by Foreign Capital Investment Advisory Government. The BKPM took form after it replaced the committee in 1973. In 1982, the Board merged with Ministry Development for Domestic Product and again merged with different instance in 1985—this time with Ministry of Mobilization for Capital Investment. The Board evolved into State Ministry of Investment Government in 1988, followed by the issuing of Negative List for Investment. The Ministry of State-owned Enterprises brought the Board under its wing in 1998 until 2001 where the Board separated from the Ministry and stood on its own. BKPM acts as a medium that connects the government with a business and is responsible for helping both domestic and foreign direct investment improve by providing an investment climate that is conducive. The Board gained its status of ministry in 2009, after which it is responsible of reporting to the President directly. The Board does not merely look for and facilitate domestic and foreign investment as it also seeks to procure investment with high quality that will reduce inequality in society and bring down unemployment level.

The Board comes with nine general responsibilities it must uphold: protecting and providing security for all citizens, establishing trusted, democratic, effective, and clean governance, empowering regions and rural areas within the country, improving life quality of all Indonesians, reforming legal system and upholding it, improving people’s productivity and competitiveness in international level, manifesting economic independence, revolutionizing nation’s characteristics, and enforcing diversity and social restoration.

The Board is mandated by the President of the Republic of Indonesia with three major tasks. It should be the agency that facilitates simplification of business licensing for both domestic and foreign investments. It must be able to facilitate and provide assistance for investment projects. It should also be the one medium that is capable of enhancing the result of an investment project. The President grants these tasks directly to the Board and everything it does to carry out said tasks must be in line with all of the nine priorities mentioned above. Everything else you want to know about the Board can be observed directly on their official website.

They Needed to Find Transportation Quickly

My son is part of a group of students who travel throughout Singapore to raise awareness to various educational issues to different groups of people. Sometimes they will do a presentation for politicians or educators, and sometimes it will be done for fellow students. They have always had transportation with the school, but they came up short on one trip not long ago. My son took it upon himself to look at different transportation services in Singapore to see if they could find something comparable so they would not have to delay or even cancel their trip.

There are different companies that provide transportation services, and he looked at each and every one of them in our area. St Lee Transport ended up being the winner for a number of reasons. The main one is because their prices are so affordable, but there were other factors as well. The cheapest bus company around would not get their business without a spotless safety record, so a lot of things had to be considered. Read More »

Different Reasons for Getting a Security System

My sister and her husband had a home security system installed at their house. They are not wealthy, but they are comfortable. They knew that they could be a potential target for thieves wanting an easy pay day because they do live in a nice house. They decided to get a security system just because of the news stories that they hear every day. When she told me of the additional benefits of the one they have, I decided to look up ADT in Winston Salem. We may live over 450 miles apart, but ADT is a national company that can install a security system just about anywhere.

I found a company not far from where I live, and the plan that my sister has is the same price for me too. I figured it would be since it is a national company, but seeing it in black and white reassured me that I would be able to afford this. Read More »

Closer to Your Loved Ones

People say that funerals are really more for the living than the dead. I can’t say that I disagree with that statement. The person that is no longer alive will not be aware of what is going on. If you do not get the right flowers, or their favorite color of flower they will not know the difference. I think that the living do things like find a monuments dealer in Essex County NJ so that they can find something that they will want to visit when they go to the grave. It is not uncommon for people to pick something on the memorial that they want to have represent the person that they no longer have in their life. When my aunt died, I was the person who was responsible for her headstone. I went and got something that she would like, but that reminded me more of her.

When I was in college, I got to go to Paris so that I could study for a semester. Read More »

My Boss is Really Not Sane

I am pretty sure that you could go on the web and find a professional to do Canada geese control in New Jersey and it would probably be rather easy and straightforward. I have no idea what it would cost, although I suspect that it might be less than what my boss has already spent. In truth I suspect that there are laws against some sorts of things that an amateur might try to get rid of a living breathing nuisance like the thirty or so geese which like to hang out on the huge lawn and parking lot that we have. Of course his issue has to do with his car, a really sweet 1964 Chevy Malibu convertible and he likes to leave the top down some days. Read More »

When Big Oak Trees Become a Neighborhood Problem

There are beautiful trees in our neighborhood. Lots of majestic old oaks. They seemed to all have topped out at a maximum height, but the trunks seemed to keep growing in diameter. Some of them are massive. When the ones on our property started to lift the sidewalks because of growing roots, we contacted a Nassau County tree service to see what we could do. We did not want to cut the trees down, but we did not know if the huge roots on the one side facing the sidewalk could be cut and removed before the sidewalk cracked.

Two things prevented us from just cutting those roots. One, was the fact that other roots would compensate and get just as big. The other fact was that the roots were so big that it could compromise the strength and health of the trees to cut them. The safest course of action was to take out the tree that was an immediate threat to damaging our sidewalk. We decided to have them all taken out. Read More »

Falling Tree Breaks Our Water Line

We kept getting up from the couch and looking out the window as the storm raged. We heard it begin. It sounded like a freight train, but it was wind winding its way down the hill and into the low spot where we lived. The rain pounded against the windows, and then we heard a loud nose. A big oak tree fell over in our yard. We called a company that my neighbor uses for tree pruning in Nassau County to come out and take a look after the storm was over.

That tree was so big and heavy that a branch penetrated the ground and broke the water line when it fell. Read More »

My Mother Helped Me to Look Good Again

My mom and I both had bad skin when we were growing up thanks to severe acne. Each of us also had a lot of pockmarks and scarring after the acne finally disappeared. My mom went to a Singapore aesthetic clinic last year to get help, though. We live in different states, and I didn’t see what she looked like until about 6 months after her treatments ended. I flew home for Christmas, and I was stunned at how great she looked when she met me at the airport. I gushed about how beautiful she is, and she said that if I was interested, she would purchase the same treatments for me, too.

My mom and I are really close. I always felt somewhat bad about my skin, but the fact that my mom’s skin looked pretty bad and she always felt confident anyway really helped me. Read More »

I Am Almost at My Goal Weight

It is near impossible to tell someone who has never been obese just how awful it is. Not only are obese people deemed irresponsible and lazy by a large majority of society, but there are the internal struggles as well. There are feelings of incompetency, of failure, of despair, and those are just a few of the feelings. It is not as easy as putting the fork down and walking around the block more. Obese people need more help than just that. I found my help when I read a Fat Diminisher System review, and I knew that I had perhaps found the one thing that might truly help me lose the weight that was weighing my down in more than just one way.

It was encouraging to read the review of someone who used the system and found immense success with it. Read More »
