A non-ministerial agency in Indonesia advises the government to open the cinema industry to foreign investment in an effort to boost the local movie industry while encouraging the arrival of more foreign direct investment (FDI) into Indonesia, hence boosting sluggish economic growth in Southeast Asia's largest economy. Currently, FDI in the domestic movie industry is not allowed by a Presidential Regulation issued in 2014. According to this regulation, companies that produce, distribute, or promote movies as well as movie theaters or cinemas have to be fully Indonesian-owned.
