FAQs

We are a collaborative group of professionals working with both foreign and domestic partners to encourage innovative business and social investment that have a positive impact on Indonesia.

Because we have been living and working here for many years before we created NCI. But we also have agreements with other councils and chambers in Jakarta and Hong Kong.

We created Working Groups to better focus our energy and resources in specific areas, which are best suited to individual interests and skill sets.

We’d love for you to join one of our Working Groups if you can contribute in a positive way! Just get in touch with the Group Leader or any other member and ask if you can join.

We have limited what information the general public can see because we want to encourage you to become a member. This helps us to develop content that’s best suited to what NCI members are interested in.

No! Membership to the NCI is open to every nationality.
