Indonesia Receives Official Investment Offer From Tesla
Indonesia has received an investment proposal from the American electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla, Septian Hario Seto, deputy head of the country for coordination of investments and mining, told reporters on Friday..
Indonesia is the world’s largest producer of nickel, a material needed for electric vehicle batteries. State officials have publicly persuaded Tesla to invest in the country, developing ambitious plans for the production of electric vehicles and batteries.
«I got their offer yesterday morning … next week we will meet with them (virtually) for an official clarification», – said Septian.
Septian said he could not provide details of the proposal due to a nondisclosure agreement, but said the focus of their discussion was on batteries and other energy storage solutions..
«If they just want to buy raw materials, we are not interested. This (proposal) goes beyond simple procurement of raw materials», – he added.
Once the largest exporter of nickel, Indonesia stopped supplying nickel last year.
The country intends to create its own complete nickel supply chain – starting with mining and then converting the ore into metals and chemicals used in batteries to meet the demand for electric vehicles..
Tesla said last year that it was looking for reliable sources of nickel around the world after warning that the current cost of batteries remains an obstacle to its growth..
