Control and Support Measures in Indonesia Amid the COVID-19 Pandemic

The Indonesian government's response to the COVID-19 pandemic has been steadily intensifying in the past weeks. Pursuant to Regulation of the DKI Jakarta Governor No. 33 of 2020 and Decree No. 380 of 2020, Jakarta became the first province in Indonesia to impose a massive social restriction. This is evidenced by the closing of schools, offices (except for those conducting essential services) and places of worship, enforcement of passenger's limitation for public and personal transportation and prohibition of mass gathering. By mid-April, President Joko Widodo declared COVID-19 as a non-natural national disaster, which obliges the governors, regents, and mayors of the various regions in Indonesia to establish policies in line with this declaration. West Java and Tangerang soon followed Jakarta's lead and declared a massive social restriction in their respective regions.


On the business side, the government has begun setting the stage to allow public institutions to introduce future measures to ensure that business can go on as usual. The OJK, Indonesia's financial services authority, now allows the submission of certain reports online and has issued a regulation on electronic general meeting of shareholders. Further, OJK has also issued Regulation No. 11/POJK.03/2020 to stabilise the nation' financial system and support economic growth amidst the outbreak. Various courts have also embraced technology by allowing certain hearings to be held via teleconference.
