He met with various foreign business chambers in Jakarta to help coordinate their input on the draft decree, and met with the MoM, the Vice President's Office and the Coordinating Ministry for Maritime Affairs to discuss and help shape the draft decree and to raise the concerns of the business chambers and advocate on their behalf.
